Re: Raccoons: Mitigating the destruction

The castration for me is a requirement. Maturity brings about the 'prime directive' in all animals, and to mature and never be able to fulfill those desires could probably create some neurosis. I've wanted a raccoon since I was 9 years old. I set all these goals for myself, like having to own a hous...

Re: 20 foxes and the people who love them...

I'm very curious as to where this 'wild' is that so many people feel so strongly about animals remaining in? Safe appropriate habitat is shrinking, globally, every day, for nearly every species. We're flying food in for polar bears, because they are starving to death, unable to adapt to this peacefu...

Re: Raccoons: Mitigating the destruction

Ahh goodness. I'm going to have to go back through ALL the toys with that in mind, I set up so many tiny items for him to feel and play with. Egads. :( We have no requirements here for raccoon care taking, aside from a receipt of purchase to prove he/she wasn't obtained from the wild. I watched that...

Raccoons: Mitigating the destruction

Hello all, I'm on the verge of adopting a raccoon kit, but I'm a very anxious person and have mentally purchased a heap of trouble that doesn't really exist yet, in the hopes of 'preparing for the worst'. This is how I live, it's not just for the raccoon. :lol: Having raised orphaned raccoon kits in...

Re: video worth seeing

Thank you so much for this, I'm always looking for an opportunity
to observe raccoons! Being on the cusp of caring for my own has
had me even more desperate for information, so this was fantastic!

Re: Betta splendens

He is very beautiful! Could he possibly have been nipped by your filter? I suspect that happened to Otto once. We also used to purchase 'ghost shrimp' for him to kill and eat, half a dozen or so at a time, in his 10 gallon tank. It was either a nip from one of those or the filter that trimmed one of...

Re: Inevitable Legal Involvement and Nasty People

I've got two nice neighbors and one busybody with a million children (on the street behind us, we're separated by a 6 foot privacy fence) - I know she's going to be all 'OH MY LANDS THINK OF THE CHILDREN' and putting them into little plastic anti-rabies suits if she sees him, so I'm skipping the int...

Re: Inevitable Legal Involvement and Nasty People

I've had this concern regarding the raccoon I'm adopting in a few weeks. I think the best thing might be to introduce yourself and say something to the effect of 'Hey, this is me, I'm adopting a fox, I've got all his paperwork and vet work in order. She/He does not have rabies or any other illness y...

Re: National Geographic's Recent Article

"Is it OK to have a pet monkey? No primate species should ever be kept as a pet. They have very special needs. These are highly social animals. They need to be kept with others of their own kind; that's just critical to their psychological well-being." This shows such bias right off the ba...

Re: Do you think Dogs are overrated as pets?

I'll hear people go on about their dogs, and I just want a chance to talk about my snakes! That's actually something I like about dogs: their relatability (and yes I accept that as a word, spell check be damned!). I would often tell people that my rats were a lot like dogs. That would make them see...

Re: Killing Feral Cats

National Geographic says we're looking at an American feral population of 70 million...it's so vast. I think TNR
is what a well intended person thinks when they see a dozen cats living behind a local motel and wants to
help them. Then you try to implement it, and get crushed by reality. :wall:

Re: Killing Feral Cats

Now what I mean by it "not being my problem" is that I would never pay for a trap-neuter-release operation. I'm all for culling, and I feel that's the humane thing to do in this situation. If other people want to try doing a trap-neuter-release they can with their own money. Someone had j...

Yeah, that's what you need, pragmatism and the strength of your convictions. I'm just too emotional. What would have been great would be a hav-a-hart style trap with a squeeze cage attached that you could take out into the field, and a mobile euth kit, which would really only need to be two shots pe...
