Before you look at anything else today, you need to look at Uni the 2-year-old raccoon from Taiwan. He will start your Friday off in the best way possible. He will make you feel things you’ve never felt before. HE’S GOT A DOG PAW ON HIS BACK.
A. DOG. PAW. ON. HIS. BACK.
According to BuzzFeed, Uni’s owner Joyce Tai gets shaved once a year when he goes to get his vaccinations. She added that raccoons are usually shaved entirely to help them through the summer heat (apparently, nobody bats an eye at a pet raccoon in Taiwan) but what fun is that? Last year Uni had a heart shaved into his cute chubby lil back.
You may be wondering about Uni’s curious fur color. Tai explained his condition- it’s called leucism (not albinism) and it is the partial loss of pigmentation in it’s skin and hair (also why he doesn’t have red eyes.) She said that she’d bought Uni back in 2014 and that “he was quite ugly when he was young.” How dare you! LOOK AT HIS LIL TOES!
🎶Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?🎶

“I’m just a normal working-class person who wants to share photos of Uni with others to bring them some joy,” said Tai. THANK YOU TAI. YOU’VE SUCCEEDED.
