Why the Blue Drum Diner exists

In 2006 we adopted a raccoon to live with us as a member of our family. He was never caged and had the freedom to come and go as he chose. Riff Raff was never a pet in the sense of the word like a dog or cat he came to mean so much more to us.

For 5 years we became both teachers and students to Riff Raff and while we taught him what was acceptable to us he reciprocated and reviled such a rich and complex set of social rules that we finally were forced to admit that the cognitive and reasoning abilities of a raccoon were far more advanced that we would have previously imagined possible.

Once Riff Raff was weaned we re-introduced him to the outdoors and from about 1 year old he was allowed to come and go as he chose and he decided to stay with us. After much trial and error we established a bond based on mutual respect and a growing love for one another. Riff Raff was exceptional as a teacher and as my brother in fur he dispelled many a myth about raccoons and their way of life.

In 2011 my wife Tina and I decided to become legal wildlife rehabbers and after much help from others finally passed the certification exams and became rehabbers in the state of Kentucky. We took in two orphaned raccoon babies (Bubba and Sasha) and immediately our relationship with Riff Raff deteriorated. What we didn’t understand was that in nature a female and male raccoon will coexist unless the female has young. By bringing the babies into the house we had triggered a natural instinct in Riff Raff to leave and at the first opportunity he did.

Heartbroken we searched the woods near our home and after 3 weeks of futile attempts to track him we were able to locate his new home. Knowing that he had no survival training we established the diner to provide food for him. Riff Raff was always a free spirit and continues to come to the diner and visit with us but unfortunately his life has led him down a different path from us. We hope he knows he can turn to us in a time of need and like a child that has grown into adulthood we must respect his wishes to be free.
