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.
I have pet Raccoons, they are the best little friends you could ever have. I found them on the side of the road after a large rain. They still were brown when I found them.
I also have a pet raccoon now. He is 14 months old.
Yes he is much more than i ever imagined!! Not necessarily "tearing" things up, yeah he could i guess, but he just likes to make a total mess of everything, i dont care what it is, he can make a mess of it!
alot of people get them and at about 5 months decide to get rid of them b/c of their coonie behavior.. either dumping them off in the wild, or hurting them!
I made a committment to my coonie and to myself no matter what happened i would always keep him and be good to him.
He is only playing and if anyone has ever seen a wild coon fight, they would know the difference!! A friend says I have the meanest coonie ever!!! He doesnt have a mean bone in his body!!!
Just because he darts off the bed and chases me around the table then jumps as high as he can to bite whatever he can bite..LOL
i just have to tell myself, hes only playing..
GRIN AND BEAR IT!!
My best friend has a pet racoon, her mom found it at her work. It was very small when they took it home and would crawl and hide under piles of blankets. it liked to eat cheerios out of your hand and was very tame. now it is about a year old and very wild because the boys in the house taught it how to fight when they would mess around with it. it only goes to certain people and if you try to pet it he will bite or scratch you. It gets into everything, and is not house trained. It likes to crack open raw eggs and eat the yolk out of it. Even still, it is a great pet when treated right and taken great care of.
Hello. my name is Mandi. I have a barn and every night i put all my cats
away and the racoon that i call rocky is always in there to. he comes in
and sleeps and eats cat food. I see him eat out of the same cat dish as the cats they have a friendship. In the middle of the night some times he opens the door and gets in. he is usually in there at about nine oclock . Today when i got home from work i walked in the barn and he was sleeping on the pile of boxes. He is really beautiful and i wish i could pet him but, i dare not because he is wild. but i have seen how friendly he is to the cats and i kind of want one as a pet. My friends Mom had a racoon that used to sleep in bed with her like a dog and use the litter box and every thing.
there are lots of racoons in my neighborhood and they are actually rather friendly because my friend and I will sit on the steps and they will approach us looking for food but some do show signs of aggression because my friend and I were going into the parking lot to watch the sunrise when one started growling at us. There are soo cute
