"Hi raccoon companions. I think I posted on the wrong page before so here are some things I have learned throughout the years of caring for these creatures. Never never hit a raccoon. We would shake our finger at nakoosa when she was a baby and she would cover her eyes with her paws, gees how cute is that. We have a much older guy raccoon, some day I will tell you guys the story on how we acquired him, it is awesome. But he started to have seizures. He came from the wild so the worst was going through my mind, rabies. Took him to a vet, no rabies, But there was some sort of toxin in his blood. Turned out it was the kitty litter, it has all kinds of crap in it. Raccoons in the wild will sit in shallow creek beds and eat the silt, it contains shells, shrimp, and all kinds of stuff. Now we got natural stuff no more siezures. Litter boxing is great, but get all natural stuff. Babies are a blast but their fingers can and will open everything. If you have to bottle feed, I watched nakoosa's previous owner do it. You need to gently hold their heads until they get use to grabbing that fake nipple. Once they get it they will do it on there own. My guys loved pudding, ensure the nutrition drink, ice cream, and glazed pecans. One mistake I made, one time nakoosa got into potatoe chips as a baby. She started choking seriously. I was showering and she was next to the tub, I literally got water down her throat and shook her upside down. Why she almost choked I am not clear on, but she did. Oh and another thing, get a tub or old baby wash bin, they love shallow water. We went to the local bait shop got some minnows, boy she had a blast. If you choose to walk your raccoon using a leash, never put it around the neck. Put it around the back of their front legs. Choose trees with little branches, and don't let them go to high that they can get hung up on your leash and you can't get them. And one other thing I can remember for now, never give any animal advil or tylenol, it is poison literally to any other creature but us. Hope this helps some people. Oh if you have a sick raccoon, the pink stuff from the vet for cats, penicillin,will not hurt your little guy. Use it the same way you would your cat, it goes by there weight. Oh and natural garlic is good if they will eat it. Mary"
