Carleton goes crazy for catnip, he licks it to the point where I have to take it away because it's soaking wet.
In the 2 years I've observed the raccoons with these cats, no they do not hurt them. There may be one or two that like to pester or taunt the cats which is common among the juvies and not adult raccoons, but they don't actually hurt them. Four of them taunted Tourmaline the other night. For the most part she ignored them and finally she's like Enough and clawed each one. You heard a squeal and one by one the raccoons retreated. I find that raccoons are really submissive to the cats though. Treasure is always swatting at them if they distract his nap time, in which case they'll lower their head and back up. I read that a cat can cause some good damage to a raccoon. Now if a raccoon is cornered or they feel you are hurting their young, then they become aggressive, regardless of species, four legged or human. Raccoons do more harm to each other then other species. And possums may not hurt us but boy are they almost blood and gore vicious with each other.How cute! Demi wanted to be friends with a raccoon, but I grabbed him away. He was so mad, he nearly took my hand off. But I didn't know if a raccoon would hurt him?
That is so cool! My mom & her church never allowed any type of belief in signs. I would like to believe in all that stuff, but they pound it into your head that it's from the devil.
