She was rescued by Rosie Kemp of the Bahamas after she (the animal) broke her arm falling from a tree when she (the animal) was just a month old. Kemp and her daughter, Laura Young, nursed her back to health and decided to adopt her.
Wildlife experts warn against adopting a wild animal, but Pumpkin would not agree.
She bonded with her rescue dog siblings and now she thinks she’s a dog. Living in the Bahamas, relaxing by the pool, eating treats like watermelon, having human servants… much better than searching for berries or scrounging in garbage cans.
Now a year old, Pumpkin has even learned to use a human toilet.
According to Young:
Raising her was (and still is) a full-time job. They are so unbelievably intelligent, very aware, and I would say they are even able to express emotions. Source
