Raccoons are intelligent, active, social, nocturnal animals. They are also destructive and unpredictable. Their sharp claws and teeth can destroy property and injure owners.
Raccoons are social enough to play happily with their human owners. They can learn to respond to a few command words, much like a cat or dog, and can learn to understand your tone of voice.
Raccoons cannot be caged for long periods. The majority of a raccoon’s time is spent roaming your house, playing, climbing on things, exploring, and being mischievous; that means your home must be childproofed. Raccoons are prone to chewing on cords, climbing bookshelves, and knocking down valuables. But still they are the most adorable pets in the whole world.
