Re: Cool idea for coonie comfort!

Mushrooms! That's funny, but then again, maybe not. Not sure if your boys would try to eat them, and if they might get sick from them? I shouldn't have much problem with mushrooms because the enclosure is in a fairly protected place and gets TONS of afternoon sun. But if mushrooms do appear, just re...

Re: Cool idea for coonie comfort!

She's still a whee tike, not yet ready for full time enclosure time, for sure! :icon-wink: Hoping if she plays on/in this when she's little, she won't be as apt to destroy it? :shrug: My boyz are 3 & 6, so they have a tendency to destroy whatever new things they come in contact with!

Re: Cool idea for coonie comfort!

Yes, the pod is actually designed for outdoor use, I think. I had planned it for my outside enclosure, but once it arrived, I opted to install in their inside enclosure only because of lack of space in their outdoor. If you read some of the reviews, many people have them outside (some suspended from...

Re: Cool idea for coonie comfort!

OK, so not the BEST idea for raccoons, but not the worst, either. The inflatable cushion inserts into a zippered area. How do you think that worked out? Really thought they'd CHEW the zipper open, but they actually unzipped it and spared it harm. The cushion, however, was another story and was DOA t...

Re: Can't get my baby coonie to take the bottle

I agree with Trefoil - most likely it's the formula. Try picking up the smallest size of KMR at the grocery, see if he'll eat that. Closer to Fox Valley than goat's milk, I'd imagine. And yes, bonding doesn't just happen to bottle-feds. Time well-spent with your coonies of ANY age will help them bon...

Re: Anyone else having coat issues?

Is Pandora OK with having you handle her feet? If so, just snip the ends off as you would a cat or dog - using pet nail clippers, of course. :icon-wink: Or you could try filing them down with emory boards or sand paper. If she's disagreeable about that, offer her climbing opportunities using real tr...

Re: First time raccoon parent

Can I sneak in for a quick question? Alfred is about 13 weeks now and is crazy hyperactive and always wants to play and nibble. He isn't really a cuddler. Will he ever calm down and want to cuddle or is this just his personality? Only time will tell the eventual personality of your Alfred. Thirteen...

Re: Bathroom problems

You might try mixing the KMR with more water or less KMR. KMR is a good milk replacer, but I've found it to cause minor constipation if mixed according to the directions. You can also try adding Karo syrup, plain yogurt or non-chunky applesauce to your formula to encourage looser BM's.

Re: First time raccoon parent

Call a wildlife sanctuary immediately and take them there, if at all possible. That is the first thing you should do when you find orphaned wildlife. @Jeepgirl, if you decide to take this route, please tell the people at the sanctuary/wildlife rescue that you ALWAYS wear gloves when handling them. ...

Re: Anyone else having coat issues?

Kagney, I have found Vitamin E softgels are excellent for coat issues. The coconut oil is good, too, but in my experience, you can't beat the Vitamin E. My Bobby had a pretty scraggly coat when he came to me late last summer, and this spring, he was nearly bald on both of his flanks and also had hor...

Re: Cool idea for coonie comfort!

I just ordered one of these, so I'll let you all know how it works out. I think it'll be OK for Bobby - he's usually pretty kind to stuff. But Dewey is Mr. Destructo!

Re: Quote About Raccoons

I have never thought of coons as being empathic or compassionate. If you want/need either of those- get a dog. Coons operate on their own agenda, you either get with their program or get left behind. Trefoil summed it up succinctly, for sure. I am 100% in agreement with her statement!! When I had s...

Please explain your concerns, because I don't want to buy them for the boys if I think they can get hurt... :shrug:
