We were out working on the fountain (AGAIN) and the sun was shining on their sweet little faces, I just had to
bust out the camera and get some pics. It's working out as planned, Corso and Charb have their little deal, Jude
and Senora have theirs - he's not the lone coon anymore. She and he sleep with us, Charb and Corso sleep together
in whichever den they pick.

I hope everybody is having a great summer, for me, I'm glad it's coming to an end, marone, this heat! :lol:

SHOW ME SOME COONS! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Thanks for sharing the pics, Ana! ALWAYS love seeing others' furr-kids!! And might I say, "WOW! Senora is growing F A S T !!!"

Seems like it was a really good idea to add a fourth one - even though it's a LOT more work for you and Mike. LOL But it sounds like it's working out great and has allowed them to 'pair off', leaving no one a loner.

Funny, I get told ALL THE TIME - from rehabbers and other 'experts' - how raccoons are loners, how they rarely spend time in others' company, except during breeding season. This is TOTAL BS!! After nearly 4 years of nightly trail cam videotaping, I have TONS of proof that this is NOT how raccoons are. Most of my wildie raccoon males will travel in pairs, at the least - even older adults of breeding age. The yearling males seem to pal up with other yearling males and can sometimes form small groups of 3-4. Seems females, though - whether yearlings or of breeding age - travel alone.

Those of us with 2 or more raccoons know that they ARE social creatures who enjoy the company of others, whether other raccoons or whatever other animal(s) reside within the household.

Yeah, Jude was officially bummed out about the Charb/Corso clique he wasn't invited to.
Having Senora has absolutely improved his mood.

But yeah, I can say comfortably after mopping for the second time today - FOUR IS A LOT.
Do not recommend! :lol: :lol:

I'm so glad Dewey got a buddy! Any news on that third?

HA! Not bloody likely any time soon. If I get another coon, I'd better plan on getting a new husband, too. :lol:

Males will form groups of up to four unrelated males in the wild and "share" the females while keeping other males and predators away.

Females will form maternity groups to help raise young and defend against predators that might harm their kits. It's not unheard of for them to adopt the kits from a deceased member of their maternity group.

They're extremely smart (nature's lockpicks :lol: ), so it makes sense that they can also reason that a wild bobcat or fox will find a group of raccoons more intimidating than a lone one. Anyone who says different is using VERY outdated information.

He chopped down our sickly willow tree, broke the trunk and branches into pieces that were a workable size, then attached them to each other with these special screws he loves and an
electric drill. We could totally do this on your property of you wanted - long as you've got a good
chainsaw!

gee, I feel bad you and mike do so much for me already.

I have a ton of tree stumps of different sizes. if you need some, you are welcome to some.
there is a big pile beside the drive way, plus a bunch more further in the back. (by the pine trees)
