Hello out there, Nakoosa's companion here. To Merlin's companion, I am so sorry for your loss. It never, never gets any easier. If it did we wouldn't be kind humans. First of all I love that name, Merlin, perfect for a racoon. Anyone that has one for a companion knows they do things that are pretty tricky. But most of all, ever since Meeka and I met, racoons have tough me how kind and loving they are. I have said it before, most humans are not as kind as racoons. I found Meeka as a baby, had her for 3 years, and lost her in our house fire, awful. Two weeks later a sick older male showed up, that was 3 years ago. Merlin will find another one that is in need of you help and love, because you are right, they have a huge soul that will live forever. NAKOOSA

I am thinking of getting a raccoon, I raised skunks for years and have always wanted a raccoon. Does anyone know if there is a difference in the tempermant of the male and female racoons? Is one calmer than the other and more friendly?

Does any one know if it is illegal to have raccoons as pets in the state of new york? I love raccoons, they are cuddly, loving, and they could keep some one on their feet.

My precious, precious pet raccoon Merlin passed away in my arms on Dec. 4. He would have been 6 years old this year. I bottle fed him along with his twin brother, Arthur. My heart is broken over his death. Raccoons are the most loving souls and I miss him dearly. Thank goodness we were given a female raccoon (Gwinavere) 2 summers ago and she is a wonderful companion for Arthur now. They both miss Merlin, I can tell. Raccoons are the loves of my life. A big chunk of my heart is missing now.

This is in response to "Stacey" who asked "Does anyone know a website through which to purchase a raccoon?" on November 18, 2008. Stacey, if you (or anyone else) are truthfully (and sincerely) interested in giving a raccoon a beautiful home, or can possibly properly reintroduce one into a safe natural habitat I would love to be contacted. This is not about making money from the sale of a coon; however, it is about finding an awesome home in a state where it is not illegal to have them as a pet.

Hello, I am nakoosa's and rockies companion. To the women whom has coonie have you tried natural stuff, like garlic in the capsules. My raccoon nakoosa loves putting them in water then eating them. Or something that gets rid of toxins in are own bodies is milkthistle. That you would have to watch, nakoosa will take about 4 sometimes 5, depending on the amount of grams. The native americans had cures for everything and these were 2 of them that I could think of to help you. I hope coonie is around for sometime to come and it sounds like he's well on his way to teaching us humans a few things. mary

Hi quickly, nakoosa companion and rockies again. I forgot something, if he is in a cage is he litter boxed. My rockie, for reason of no teeth and in nature, would think the litter as the bottom of a creek and eat it, causing seizures because of the toxins in it. Natural litter solved the problem. He also did not use the litter for potty, he lets us know when he has to go and he goes outside. If you choose natural products to help coonie like garlic and milkthislte, kooey eats garlic and she just loves it, but the milkthistle I watch. I read somewhere if a horse eats to much of it out in pastures, he can get sick so I find the lowest dosage. She eats about 4 or five of both garlic and milkthistle, she doesn't eat the capsule, she sucks out the stuff. Clever little girl. Again best hopes for you and coonie. We all know what you're going thru, just trying to help. mary
