Re: How to reintroduce Orphan Racoon to wild

Trefoil is absolutely right. They are fairly easily rehabbed and released to the wild, but you can't do it from an apartment. Because he's not been able to learn from his mama, he'll need food assistance and possibly shelter at least through his first year wild. Thank you for rescuing him. Hoping yo...

Re: Help PLEASE

Thanks, Trefoil! Good to know. Maybe when I go to place my order, I'll call first to see what they recommend. I'll need something water resistant and hopefully weather-resistant, too, as some of the hammocks will be in their outdoor enclosure. The sun can be really hard on fabric... :-x

Re: Help PLEASE

Have you used this material? Which would you suggest? I have not, Trefoil - but plan to order some, at some point in the future. Probably not til fall or winter, because I just don't have time to sew anything right now. Too much stuff outside to care for in the summer... If you have any questions, ...

Re: Help PLEASE

Are you handy with a sewing machine? (Or know someone who is??) *Perhaps* making a mattress cover out of a rip-resistant or rip-proof fabric may work?? Not sure how comfy that would be to lay on, though... A quick Google search found this fabric retailer: https://ripstopbytheroll.com/collections/syn...

Re: yapok - Water possums

Wow - thanks for sharing, Mary! I didn't know this critter even existed. I think most people would be hard-pressed to accommodate owning one, but they'd surely be a great addition to a zoo. I'd love to have a Virginia possum, but their short-life span deters me. Three years is just too short to love...

Re: Poll - Just for us raccoon parents

LOL Yeah, I think they tend to be far more comfortable being ambidextrous than humans. :icon-wink: I've queried other raccoon parents, and so far, the results are leaning towards righties being more in the majority.

Poll - Just for us raccoon parents

Back a few weeks ago, I was reading an article about right-handedness in mammals - mostly in humans and the greater apes - percentages running about 90% righthanded, 10% lefties. I got to thinking, I wonder how that would work out in the raccoon world? I already knew my boys preferred using their ri...

Re: Sleeping in cage

I'm sorry, but I think you'll find most of us raccoon parents will concur that those types of cages are not only not suitable for raccoons, but actually are downright cruel. If you're looking for something to temporarily restrain your raccoon but allow him comfort and room for sleeping and a litter ...

Re: smoked bones, are they bad?

From Red Barn's website description of those bones: Redbarn's White Bones are slow roasted and naturally cleaned. You can rest assured your pup is getting a safe, natural and delicious dog chew with no added flavors, colors, preservatives or chemicals. It also says these bones can splinter, but I've...

Re: Sleeping in cage

OK, back on topic, then, Yatzee... Yes, they can be kept in a 'cage', but a very large one - one that wouldn't really be considered a cage, but rather an enclosure. A small, raccoon-proofed spare room will do, or a specially built outdoor enclosure. Anything less than an 8'X10' enclosure is too smal...

Re: Sleeping in cage

Still, please be cautious when allowing people to visit/interact with your boy. One bite or scratch reported to authorities, and off with his head (to check for rabies). I'd truly like to know why this 'rabid raccoon' phenomenon continues to be perpetuated. Yes, they can get and pass on rabies. So c...

Re: Sleeping in cage

If taking your raccoon out in public, please ensure HIS safety by knowing local/state laws. Not sure about FL, but in PA, we are NOT permitted to take our raccoons off home premises except for vet care, selling or breeding purposes. Getting caught can get you a fine, at the least, and seizure at the...
