I love Raccoons (all other animals as well), and I recently bought an albino raccoon. My raccoons name is Rudy, and I'm currently bottle feeding him. It's just like having a new born baby around the house.
He chatters when he's hungry, and settles down after he eats his food.
I've had many different or unusual pets...but this one is by far the coolest pet I have ever owned. Oh... did I mention how cute he is???
I laugh, grin, or smile every time I look at him.
Raccoons make awesome great pets.

The other day, my boyfriend and I went for a walk in the woods. Now, it is not completely uncommon for us to randomly bring home a pet whether from the pet store or from a camping trip, but this time, it was NOT intended. A mother and her babies were near us in the woods and we were just watching them when the babies came up to meet us. After a while we decided to leave, but I had a follower. One of the babies followed me home that night. Three days into it, s/he still hasn't left me, looks for me if I leave him alone: he seems to have adopted me and my boyfriend as his family now, even though we've tried to return him to his family. Oh well. He's so cute, we are just hoping we can handle a racoon along with our two dogs, a cat, rabbit, two birds, and a bunch of fish...
My husband works for a critter control company, and he is always bringing home new friends. The best thing he ever brought home was Einstien. Our little racoon and his 4 brothers and sisters were found in a chimney, and the mother could not be found or trapped.
We found homes for the all of the tiny little babies, except for Einstein. He has crazy gray hair that sticks straight-up like Albert Einstein. Our 2 year old Bullmastiff thinks that he is her baby and tries to nurse and clean him. It is so funny to see such a huge dog coddlng a tiny little coon! He has been a very good baby, and he is so much fun to watch! He is like a tiny little monkey. He likes to climb in our pockets and take a nap. Having a racoon is not an easy job. You should only adopt one if you can spend a lot of time with them. Einstein has been by far the most interesting part of our family!

I have a male pet raccoon named Bandit (of course!) Me and my boyfriend bought him from a raccoon breeder when he was two weeks old. His eyes werent even opened yet! He is litter box trained and very tame. We even got him neutered, microchipped, and rabies vaccinated. He is the best pet I own (I have 8 other pets: 3 sugar gliders, one dog, two conure birds, and two mice) I live in Illinois and all we need to own him is a permit from the Department of Natural Resources. He is very sweet and loving and playful. He has him own room with a queen sized bed and he is very spoiled! I love him so much and cant imagine my life without him.
Raccons r cool. u guys rock with all the animals that I love.
Growing up in the suburbs of Brooklyn New York, I never knew that wild racoons roamed the area at night. My first time I met a coon, came when I stumbled home a bit intoxicated from my neighborhood bar. To my surprise, going through my garbage was "Bandit," as he affectionately became known to me. What surpirsed me most, was Bandit seemed more curious than frightful of me. As a reward for this curiousity I went into my house and fed him some nachos and cheetos, which he really seemed to enjoy.
Bandit would come visit me on a very regular basis, usually waiting at my doorstep a few days a week. His intelligence and natural curiousity were remarkable, as was his calm and tame ways. Bandit and me would sit on the porch often and we would talk for hours. He seemed to have a deep understanding of me, and my inner-most thoughts. Bandit would perform the most humanlike behaviors and would copy me when I performed tricks such as spinning on my head and line dancing.
After a number of meetings, Bandit did move in with me and we had a wonderful relationship for a number of years. I was very dismayed, when I did come home one evening and found out that he had left.
I would highly recommend owning a coon to all. Bandits natural warmth and beauty are what faity tales are made of. I never did get over losing that coon.
we have a pet coon. after his mother was hit by a car by my barn, it took him three days to come out of his nest and find me. he was only two weeks old. i fed him from a baby bottle with 1 1/2 cups whole milk mixed with 1 raw egg and 2Tb sugar. i have had him for ten months and he is 22lbs.
