    Maybe he was looking for a replacement companion. Raccoons like other raccoons & will seek out buddies etc, which he didn't have a need to go out of his way to do before because he always had his bub

I had a lil raccoon, and she is the sweetest thing on earth, her mom was shot and I took her in and raised her, then my husband built her a big house outside so she could play and have her own place when she no longer wanted to stay in the house. One day three days ago, I was cleaning her outside house and did not lock the back door, when I went out to check on her like always, she had got out the door and has not returned home. My question is will she come home and will she be ok out there? She is 15 months old. Please give me some good news. I have cried so much my eyes are swollen:(

    I would think that your raccoon will be just fine on its own, they are wild by nature. I'm sure you are sad though, I'm so sorry :( Keep an eye out for her because she may turn up, especially because she feels comfortable in the home she grew up in.
  • mary hicks - 2013-12-28
    she may come back and may not but she should be ok.
  • aimee - 2016-01-26
    I feel your pain we raised ours for 1year he went outside as ever day and hasn't returned we have cried our eyes out for our baby I have same question will he return home
  • Anonymous - 2018-09-10
    Ours has went outside stayed few days, but always ends up coming home . Keep cage open with feed. She will return .
  • ruthie - 2019-10-10
    Oh no :( I am so sorry! Did she come back home? I was wondering if you had coyotes in the area, they are becoming more urban & people often have no odea they're prowling their neighborhood at night... Maybe she was mating. At her age, and it being November (?) when you wrote this.

  • Tara Kelly - 2011-12-04
    Hello, I was wondering if you had any babies due coming up to the spring. I have been searching for a breeder for a very long time. I was raised up on a farm in Australia and our family was part of WIRES, which cares for native animals. I have quite a lot of experience in raising wildlife. I have done a lot of research on the muntjac and seems to be the perfect fit for me and my lifestyle. I don't have another pets as I have been trying for nearly 2years to get in contact with a reportable breeder. I hope to hear from you soon.

I have had Raccoons as "pets". I use the word pet loosely, because there were more like members of the family. I agree that 99% of people who want a pet raccoon will probably not be able to properly take care of them. They are so very precious when they are babies, but like everything else, they grow up. I kept my coonies inside and they had full run of the house. They were never caged and were allowed to go in and out at will. They chose to stay inside most of the time and I have never had one that went out and did not come back. They used a litter box that was filled with water instead of litter. I simply dumped out the dirty water once or twice a day and as long as the water was kept relatively clean, they never used the potty anywhere else except the box. They are extremely curious and those little "hands" are constantly feeling of everything around them. I get the biggest kick in the world out of them and would take in another in a NY second, but I know what to expect and know that I can handle it. They are as destructive and mischieveious as they are cute. They can get into anything, anywhere. I had childproof locks on EVERY SINGLE CABINET IN MY HOUSE! They can open medicine bottles, the refrigerator (nothing like coming downstairs in the middle of the night to see what the noise is only to find a raccoon sitting in the fridge, eating what looked good and tossing the rest onto the kitchen floor), they will unplug your clocks, tv's ect., break your trinkets and whatnots, hide your keys, chew the buttons off your cell phone, and yes...they DO and WILL BITE. They have very sharp claws and teeth and can inflict damage even when not meaning to. They (at least mine did) become very territorial towards their house and their family. You must put them behind closed doors before letting company inside. Mine would not tolerate the presence of anyone that did not live in the house. If a thief had ever broken into the house, he/she would have been easy to find later. If they managed to get out of the house, you could just check the local ER for a shredded person! So...if you are super patient, don't mind replacing material possessions, can take pain from bites and scratches, have adequate space, never go on vacation, have excellent homeowners insurance, rarely have company and if you have the proper paperwork/licenses to keep one, go ahead. But please please! Be sure you can take care of it FOREVER or provide for it in case you are unable to.

  • Gunner\'s Mom - 2013-05-07
    You nailed it. I have had mine for two years. We bought him from a breeder, as a baby. He is fixed & vaccinated. He is my son. You are absolutely correct. I talk a lot of people out of the idea because it takes a rare, certain person to be a Forever Mom. If an owner were to decide they don't want the pet anymore, chances are this beautiful animal would wind up being put down at some point, as they don't like serious change. Therefore, one must make a life long commitment to this pet. I am fortunate Gunner has myself & his daddy, otherwise, there would be no vacation for me. Only one of us goes at a time..the other remains home with him. As far as his minor mood swings (like any person has), he has learned my stern voice, 'don't you bite me.' I do want to point out that tbe column above is incorrect, which I am sure you noticed too... For those unaware, DO NOT FEED RACCOONS CAT FOOD OR TABLE SCRAPS!!!!! A good quality DOG food & HEALTHY people food (as snacks). Nothing pertaining to tomatoes, onions, garlic, CHOCOLATE....cat food will eventually harm & kill internal organs, chocolate can kill immediately, & the other at the least will cause major tummy trouble. I feed mine Iams weight control dog food, celery, frozen green beans (awesome snack!), & fresh spinach leaves. Respect your baby, & he/she will show you respect & love in return :-)
  • David Darkstone - 2016-06-03
    You people are the worst kind of people, you think you are doing a good thing by discouraging people from having pet raccoons but yet you say you are special that's why you can have one, that's a load of b.s .its people like you that cause the laws to be so harsh towards raccoons and raccoon ownership, you people should encourage others so the more people have them and see how possible it is to have one the laws can start to change but instead you choose your ego and tell everyone how horrible they are yet you are special you can have one not because they are good but because you are special and have animal bonding abilities, you people are sick. If you really cared and loved these animals you would care about their kind and spread a positive message about them instead of feeding your egotistical needs.

  • JIll Kutchka - 2018-10-19
    This is the best description of a raccoon I have ever read!!!! I adore people like you!

    Have you ever had one get out and if so did it come home?
  • Misty - 2018-11-19
    Boy you hit the nail on the head.my little Funky Bunky is just as you described He's one of the family for sure .well our dog would say different if he could .lol.you sure are right about never going on vacation.my mom used to watch Bunky for us but he would cry and try to open the door to go with me .so after 45 minutes of that my mom called and said never again that it was heart breaking to watch him like that.so now he just goes with me or my old man stays home with him .thank you for sharing your story.

  • tammi cross - 2019-04-03
    I have a 4 1/2 yo male raccoon , and yes , they have been known to return , after " getting out " . On another story , I also know of a family who lost their " pet " , once he was able to get free . ( i also hesitate to use the term " pet " , because he is so much more to me than that term implies ! I believe that the care you give determines the outcome of such a situation . I live out by a lake ( very rural , is what I mean ! ) and my sweetheart was gone 3 days ! I never gave up on finding him , though , and he just came strolling through the front door , one evening , like he " owns the place " . ( which , if how much he is adored were to be any indicator , he DOES ! LOL ! )
    I have NEVER " caged " him , nor have i EVER " mistreated " ( yelled at , struck .. etc . ) him . He is actually VERY well - behaved ; he uses his litter box , and has NEVER bitten ME . However , he HAS attacked 2 other people whom are NOT a member of his family . I am just trying to convey that they seem to respond directly to HOW THEY ARE TREATED , MUCH LIKE ANY OTHER LIVING CREATURE ! The mistake , I believe , that is most commonly made is most people's desire to have a " pet " raccoon based on the " cool " factor . They seem to be more interested in being able to say " I have a pet raccoon " , than actually TAKING CARE OF said raccoon ! I can almost guarantee that ANYTIME you take this inquisitive and intelligent animal and put him in a CAGE ~ ONLY TO BE TAKEN OUT TO " SHOW OFF " ~ THAT RACCOON IS GOING TO RESENT YOU , AND PROBABLY WILL NOT BE A GOOD COMPANION ! The people whom claim to be the exceptions to the rule , regarding owning this " wild " animal , are probably the ones who understand the amount of ENERGY required to STIMULATE , and therefore KEEP HAPPY , such a " high maintenance " little family member requires ! Unfortunately , it's also been my experience that the motivating factor for the majority of these people is NOT the health of the animal ! If everyone would spend the time needed for the happy and healthy developement of a " pet " raccoon , it WOULD certainly promote more wide spread acceptance of these awesome animals - which could only be GOOD for both THEM , and US ! HE CERTAINLY BRINGS MUCH TO OUR LIVES . Thanks for reading .
