Yatzee is just like a puppy. We call him PBC, Puppy Bear Coon
Poor thing. We never call our animals by their names. I wonder if Yats is confused. I try to use his name but, I find myself calling him puppy a lot.
The only time he gets cranky is when he's tired or is made to get out of bed before he's ready...and sugar. I gave him half of a cookie once. He was out of control!
When I know he's tired and I scoop him up to put him in his hammock, he does that high pitch gurgle scream. Like he's yelling at me. Then he does his breathing hard at me and if he's really cranky he'll try to bite. He's gotten me good a few times. Luckily it doesn't happen often. I've learned the warnings.
Overall, for a raccoon, he's pretty good.
I assume when you got Yatzee fixed, it was his first year? guess his coon talk is: "I am allowed to do what I want"
my preference, I don't use different names for my animals. I want them to learn what their name is, so when I call them, they will know I am calling them (not saying they always listen )
my raccoons or foxes never bit me. I correct them anytime I see them attempting to bite (that was only one of my foxes) I was able to correct him of that.
