Scent Marking

Postby Deweylee17 » Wed Jul 19, 2017 2:43 pm

I was wondering if anyone else has had a problem with their raccoons scent marking. My female is only 17 weeks old and for some reason she likes to rub her scent on certain things. Me being one of those things :icon-frown: I am not sure there is anything I can do other than keep cleaning the carpet after she has scent marked. She is litter trained and it doesn't seem like she urinates it is just a musky scent.

Our girl does that to our bodies and our furniture, she's about the same age as yours.
I think she's probably just marking her territory, her possessions, her people. It's a good
thing, really. With the carpet, yeah, I have a Bissell "little green clean machine" and boy does
it get plenty of use. :lol: :lol:

Only thing that might reduce it is making sure she feels safe and welcome everywhere at
all times.

Thank You. I will definitely be investing in the carpet cleaner!
She is the Princess of the house and has full range within its walls. She and the dog play tirelessly and we enjoy every minute of having her in our lives.
I do hope with age she would be a little more interested in cuddling! icon-smile

It comes and goes. Definitely push yourself on her with hugs, kisses and treats!

I've never experienced that. Are you sure it isn't an anal gland problem?

I should probably have the vet take a look at that. Thank You for the suggestion.
