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...

Re: Raccoon Cough?

If they're just learning to drink water or formula out of a water dish, sometimes they will aspirate a little, just because they haven't learned to lap it correctly yet. Some still kind of suck and lap until they get the hang of it. (Does that make sense??) Not sure if that was the cause for either ...

Re: smoked bones, are they bad?

OMG, no - please don't! I've tried a couple different "smoked" brands over the years, and ALL of them shatter and can end up with needle-sharp slivers that could do abundant damage if ingested. These things shouldn't be legal to sell!! I'm not sure if it's the "smoking" process t...

Re: Diahrea issues

I’ve been halfing her kmr with water. Not quite clear on what you wrote... Are you using less KMR and more water?? If so, I think you might try doing it the other way around, and making it LESS watery. She needs more bulk to harden up her stools, and less water. You could try adding some plain yogu...

Re: Introducing new raccoon

YES!! Absolutely, females can kill babies that aren't theirs. You must keep them separated until he's about 6 months old, then allow them to acclimate to each other gradually. If you can somehow separate your enclosure into 2 pens and allow them to meet with fencing between them, that would be best....
