Hello. my name is Mandi. I have a barn and every night i put all my cats
away and the racoon that i call rocky is always in there to. he comes in
and sleeps and eats cat food. I see him eat out of the same cat dish as the cats they have a friendship. In the middle of the night some times he opens the door and gets in. he is usually in there at about nine oclock . Today when i got home from work i walked in the barn and he was sleeping on the pile of boxes. He is really beautiful and i wish i could pet him but, i dare not because he is wild. but i have seen how friendly he is to the cats and i kind of want one as a pet. My friends Mom had a racoon that used to sleep in bed with her like a dog and use the litter box and every thing.

I have a 14 year old female raccoon who is definitely part of the family. She has never been caged and liv s very well with our small dog and cat. Litter trained and does not go outside as I worry about her contracting disease. She has never been sick.
That being said though she has low quite a bit of wait this summer. She is still eating well and is healthy on her wise from what I can see.
Any thoughts on the weight loss? Is it due to old age?

My kids dad brought a baby raccoon home and I bottle fed it and shes healthy.. probably about 4 or 5 years old. I have 2 kids, one being a year old. I dont have the best living conditions for racoon to be happy and shes becoming too much to handle.. i feel terrible because i probably should've brought her to wildlife rehabilitation but I didnt and now I want to find her a home. Maybe someone on here can help or wants to adopt her. I live in Florida

    Raccoons are illegal as pets in Cook County (I live there too) and any vet that is found treating an illegal pet can have their license taken away. You probably can have one if you live outside of Cook County, but please double check the laws. If animal control finds out about an illegal pet, it will probably be euthanized and biopsied for rabies testing.

    I live in Canada & it is illegal to own a wild animal. ANY wild animal. However, a couple of stupid people saw 2 tiny baby raccoons in the back seat of an old car at an auction & thought the mother wasn't coming back and stole the babies. 100% sure she was hiding until everyone left. They should have at least waited 24 hours & checked from a distance if she returned. However, there are idiots born every second.

    Anyway, one of the kits came to me after the one person.could no longer have her because they lived in a municipality & I was on a farm. I loved this little raccoon to destruction. She was never in the house but locked in the barn unless I was there until ?5-6 months old. Then she had free rein. She lived on top of the hay bales & even though the house was not that far away, she never came there. I had her over the her 1st winter & would try & play with her everyday. We were very close. But late that next spring she disappeared. I was sick. I was hoping to start working on releasing her in a huge provincial park in the fall. She was beautiful whe she left, probably 40 pounds. She came back a month later, looked TERRIBLE & had probably lost half her weight. I think she had found a mate because she then made a "nest" so to speak in our Quonset & really didn't want much to do with anyone. I had 2 young Grandaughters & we were constantly at the barn as we had horses etc. I had to release her to a zoo. It broke my heart.

    PLEASE for the animals sake DO NOT GET a pet raccoon . They are adorable for about 8 months but then they become what nature intended them to be. Mine was not mean and nasty but might have become so if she had young.
