My buddy's mom raised some coons. Other than getting into shit constantly, they were really nice. The neighbors pit bull got out and massacred them.

Nah. Not if you actually raise them like a pet. My cousin currently has one that's 11 years old and another that's 5 or 6. They're part of the family and play in the yard with the dogs and cats. The older one weighs about 25 pounds... If you're sitting in a chair on the porch, the fat little bastard will hop right up in your lap like a cat and take a nap.

I wouldn't suggest expecting to keep them indoors past a year or two old though. But only because they need a lot of exercise or they'll hide things around the house, and play in the toilet all the time.

We have had Toto on the Innova low fat food now for about 5 years, he is now only 14 lbs. and getting old and slightly cranky. We have a 5 pound female now that runs the house.

How does the bathroom situation work with a coon? Cats have litter boxes. Do they just stay outside all the time?

I just can't see how that's going to go well. But maybe it can.

For me personally, I'm not a fan of Racoons. We had a pond in our backyard and man did those d@mn racoons love that. Would come at night in the summer treating it like a fish buffet. Never really caught many fish but would tear up all my water plants in the process.

... Probably my fault for not having a pond big enough.

Bathroom situation works like this:



Raccoons are actually very smart animals. Smarter than dogs and cats. Their intelligence has often been estimated to be at near primate levels.

That is fun stuff, I had no idea. :-) Like some of the others, I thought they were mean.

They're more popular as pets than most people realize. Like I said, ours have always wrestled around with the other dogs and cats like no big deal.

This pit bull doesn't seem to mind...

Not intentionally trying to be a Debbie Downer, but don't they pick up Rabies rather commonly?

Actually dogs and cats are much more susceptible to rabies than raccoons are. You're more likely to get rabies from those furball cats of yours....

Read the Animal Susceptibility section:

So what's the "No no no" at the end all about?

looks like all of my Raccoon info was wrong.

BTW, my cats are always strictly indoors and get shots every year, anyway.
