    Sigh! I live in an apartment; does anyone know where I can find a raccoon? :-D

    You don’t really want a raccoon. I may live in the middle of town, surrounded by houses, but we’ve got plenty of raccoons. They dig up my lawn and eat anything left unprotected outside (peaches on my tree, cat food, etc.). But, worst of all, and a potentially serious health hazard, they poop in my yard and I have to pick up their parasite-laden messes (with plastic bags, of course) and dump them in the trash (UGH!)

    @Linda1259:
    Not to mention you do NOT want to be anywhere near a raccoon fight. They scream bloody murder, and their claws and teeth finish the job.

    AND they carry rabies. But their kits are really cute.

    Raccoons can carry rabies but you would need to be bitten or scratched before getting it. However, they often DO carry canine distemper, and since this particular disease can live on surfaces for about 24 hours, make sure your dogs are vaccinated against it. As far as digging up your lawn, it is more likely skunks digging for grubs and worms. They are prodigious diggers. If you want to avoid most wildlife, don’t make your property a buffet for them. Cover your garbage cans, and don’t feed the cat outdoors. Domestic animals should be kept indoors, especially at night when most wildlife is roaming in search of food.

    Thanks Linda for some common sense advice. I live in a wooded area with several acres of woods behind and beside me and welcome the wildlife. We have quite a variety here too.

    Also called “mapatchly” the “masked one.” They may be our next sapients after we are gone. They have most of the equipment for it, just larger brain pans are needed.

    Night-Gaunt49: Or Procyon lotor in any language. The brains aren’t the problem, but the lack of an opposable thumb. Any surviving primate would be a better candidate.

    of course, that presupposes that your neighbors aren’t bleeding hearts who feed the wild critters….

    The way most people act, I’d say the raccoon’s brain pan size us adequate

    Thank you (and the others) for your comments. I think I shall get a goldfish. :-)

    Maybe I’ll just settle for a canary. :-)

    Birds get mites.
    Fish can get ich.
    Any pet takes care to keep healthy.

    Too bad elementary school doesn’t have a class, with grades, about taking care of all manner of pets. Teach ’em young!
