" Raccoons are the most glorious animals on earth! As you can tell, I absolutely love them. I have rehabbed babies for release and have kept one as part of our family. She has been the grandest blessing since our children. Yes, she does occasionally bite and she does scratch, but we knew what to expect and besides, a little spilled blood is nothing compared to the joy she has brought into our lives. BUT, it takes a special kind of person or family to truely care for a raccoon as a pet. She was raised as one would raise a house cat. She goes to the bathroom in her "water" box, which is just a litter box filled with a couple inches of water. We tried litter first, then sand and dirt, but a couple inches of water did the trick. It is also easy to clean, just flush down the toilet and rinse out the box and refill with water. She can and does reach anywhere she so desires, so our entire house is "raccoon" proofed. Still, broken trinkets and some minor destruction are all just part of the game. She is not spayed, but shows no interest in being outside. When she does go out, she will sniff around and play awhile, but she wants to go back inside before very long. Her heat cycles can be "interesting" at times, but she has yet to become mean or restless when in heat. We do have to be careful of friends or family while visiting. We must contain her in one room while company is about, as she does not take kindly to visitors in HER house. I have seen more than one rather large manly man, who(on their first visit)insisted that there was no need to secure the raccoon, scream like a little girl and hop on top of my furniture trying to get away from my snarling snorting furball. Second visit, they stay outside until they are sure the coon is safetly locked away. All in all, I would not trade my raccoon for any other pet in the world. "
