"I have a racoon, Scooter, that was orphaned. I obtained him around Halloween time, he is now going on almost a yr old. He was a challange at best. Full of energy and on occassion, tempermental. He is so attached to me that he cries for me if he can not see me. He now knows how to climb trees, not the problem, getting down was. So, things are a littler easier on me now that I can let him out for his play time where I don't have to be right with him. I have a completely 6' fenced-in yard so threats of other dogs are not a problem. He is the one that instigates my dog. She find it best to just get out of his way. It saddens me to think of my life without him in it, however, by this time he is simply put, my pet. As the story goes, he will get mean, but as of yet I have not seen that behaviour. However, when the time comes, I am at a loss as to where or how to place him, which in itself will be very difficult for me to do. I would like to see him with his own kind and to be free without danger or harm. Everything to him is play time, so if given the chance to be near humans, they would not know that he is just playing and probably even think he is rabid. He loves to wrestle and is very gentle in his play as well. He does not scratch or hold too tightly, as he did when he was younger before he mastered his very sharp claws. Any suggestions would be welcomed. I am in no hurry but know the day will come to set him free. Anyone needing advise on their behaviours can let me in on that as well. He is not the first that I have raised. "
