I am a Coonie mom, this is my coonie baby "YOGI" he is now about 8 months old. I have raised him since he was about 3 weeks old. He bottle fed for nearly 5 months. he has been raised around a farm full of animals but mostly our two sheltie's. I think he thinks he's a dog. He is pure joyfulness, I don't recommend a raccoon as a pet, but YOGI is a very good boy because of how he was raised and is continued to be raised.
