Loki by Blackn-Yellow Loki by Blackn-Yellow
My pet raccoon I adopted several months ago. He is the sweetest, most mischievous, little thing! He's about 6 months old now. We named him well, he gets into as much trouble as Loki!

He's too much of a baby to be a bandit. He's also incredibly spoiled but he's a sweetheart.

Out of pure curiosity, are you going to keep it after it becomes sexually mature, or will you let it go into the wild at that point? That seems to be the debate I hear most often in my studies. Most of the books say that the raccoon gets more aggressive after its hormones start flowing, while other people, such as Remocoon, has 3 raccoon adults and they are fairing fine together.

He's far too tame now to ever even consider releasing him. We pretty much ruined him. lol It also depends on if you get them neutered at or before 6 weeks, which we did. That prevents them from ever getting aggressive.

The laws for the wild life are around for both Human and Animal protection.
It may seem obscure especially when you own an animal such as a coon, fox, wolf, bear, ect. but you also have to take in account for the abuse some go through because of stupid people.
I've taken in way to many wild life orphans, breaking the state and federal laws pertaining to wildlife and although it does upset me, I've also seen people treat them horrifically wrong which makes me somewhat glad the laws exist.

Just rambling ^^" sorry~

Only for those that neglect/abuse their animals. As for myself, I take the best care possible of my little buddy. There are always going to be people that mistreat animals, but consider this; cats and dogs are perfectly legal, yet they are also the victims of abuse. So I ask, what's the difference? Is it any different to abuse a wild animal than it is to abuse a cat or dog? 

No, you're fine. You have a point but like I said, I think it should be legal to keep them in all states because of the fact that there will always be irresponsible pet owners, which while unfortunate, is a sad fact. It's no different than mistreating any other pet, exotic or not.

True but there's the fear of disease. Although you may think they're tamed, deep down they're still wild. It just takes one second, one movement and they could snap back. Although domesticated dogs and cats have had generations of being tamed, they still also have their moments of going back to being wild. I've seen it a lot with tamed dogs that are really good around everyone, even infants. Like my foster parents dog. But they do snap at times, and wildlife/exotics or more pron and expected to snap then a dog or cat.

That's true, but if they're legal, they can be inoculated. It depends on how young you get them and if they're born in captivity, they won't be wild. There are raccoons and other exotic pets in pet shops that were born in the shop.

Actually, I created MiniNova long before I got Loki. I created MiniNova on May 18, 2011 and adopted Loki on April 13th, 2012. Big gap in between, where I wanted another pet raccoon and I got what I wished for. They make the best pets, btw.

Well, that's because I made certain observations about raccoons when I created MiniNova. One such observation is the peak of their mask, running up their forehead, between their eyes. Though Mini has been mistaken for a dog, a fox and of all things, a cow. Not sure how that came about, but it's a good sign that my job was done right. See, it's nice to have something that looks exactly like what it should, but that's boring and uninspired. Whereas, if they have to guess what it is, it just means that you exaggerated it so that what it is isn't apparent just what the creature is, much like Ren and Stimpy. Exaggeration makes it interesting, gives it charm and keeps from being boring. Any numbskull could draw a raccoon and make it look like a raccoon, a true artist gives it it's own flavor.
