To Contact a Raccoon Removal Professional
I hear about it all the time, the phone rings with a customer telling me how a raccoon has been stealing there cats food from the porch. Fact is, that when the food is outside, its everyones food that lives in the outdoors. And even though you may live in the city, the same rules apply as do in the wild.
Survival of the fittest: Sad but true, only the fittest or fastest get to eat in the wild. It doesn’t mean that your kitty has to starve though because there are options, and you hold the key to resolving this issue. Raccoons are nocturnal animals, the sunlight on a bright day will actually hurt there eyes, because they are adapted to low light conditions. Your cat may go toe to toe with a raccoon over a bowl of food, but she may get seriously hurt, or killed! Raccoons have been known to kill dogs twice there size when threataned.
Feed in the Day Time: Its alright to feed a cat outdoors, just dont do it when the raccoons are active. Seeing as the raccoons come out of hiding right around dusk, thats when the food bowls should come inside.
How to tell: How do you know if a raccoon has been eating your cats? I have an answer for everything, All you need to do is put a pie pan full of water near the food. Raccoons can’t resist putting food and there hands in in the water. In the morning if the water in the pan is muddy… thats a raccoon eating your cats food!
Is it alright if they share?: Well, no… its not. Like I said before, raccoons are armed to fight pretty well. Theres no need to find out if your cat will win in a fight with a raccoon. And there are other dangers that a raccoon in the area will pose to your cat. Rabies, distemper, and paracites which could all be transmitted to your cat, could have lethal results. You wouldnt park your car in a tow zone, and you wouldnt touch something if there were a WET PAINT sign would you? Well sometimes the sign isnt spelled out so plainly, but if you know you have raccoons eating your cats food, do something about it right away. If you feed outside, be sure to wash the cat bowls out with bleach every day before filling the bowl again.
Trapping Raccoons: In a situation where the raccoon must be removed, be sure to call a professional trapper. There are several reasions for this, and Ill go into it a little here. The raccoon here on the porch could be a mother raccoon with young waiting for her to return. If you can see the nipples on a raccoon, she has babys which will surely starve without her. Although we feel invaded with her eating our cats food, its just a raccoon doing what raccoons do.
Raccoons Entering Cat Doors: Well, your cat learned how to use the doors, and now, so did the raccoons. There is a cat door out there called a PET SAFE DOOR. It stays locked until the cat is close to it with a transmitter on its collar. Then it locks again when the cat passes thru it. Wonderfull idea for cat owners who let there cats outside. I have had calls from people who would get raccoons raiding there kitchens at night! They cause one heck of a mess, and to be honest with you, that is a dangerous situation.

Here I would like to familiarise you with the Raccoon! There playful antics, and personality is something to share with children as they forage for grubs and play in bird baths. But keep your distance from them, as the mother raccoon is extremely protective of her young! Raccoons show little fear when they run into a human.
A raccoon is an animal that prefers dim light or darkness. There eyes are adapted to low light conditions, and bright sunlight will hurt its eyes. A raccoon will actually hide its eyes if the sun comes out and is too bright. If you see a raccoon outside on a sunny day, dont go near it! It is not acting normally, and could be sick!
A raccoon is a medium sized animal found in North America. She gets as big as 50 pounds in some areas, and live as long as 12 years, although the average is 6 years. The female Raccoon can have Baby Raccoons after she is a year old, and has an average litter of 4 baby raccoons. She will have her babies in a hole in the ground, or a hollow tree, or in an attic of a home where she has been on the roof! Raccoons like to climb on roofs and play in trees like monkeys. Most times they will climb tree branches to get on a roof, but sometimes they will climb a support pole, or a gutter down spout to get there. Feeding raccoons can be fun to watch, but may not be such a good idea in the city. Neighbors may blame you for them having a raccoon in an attic. So, make sure before you feed raccoons that your neighbors are alright with it. This kind of behavior is found in several places such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Longbeach, Orange county and Phoenix. We service ALL CITIES of these areas. Call us today!
Raccoons in attics will poop and pee all over insulation, and require all insulation to be removed and disinfect, and deoderised. Costing thousands of dollars
Raccoons can get sick, and do carry parasites that you can pick up too. Fleas, ticks, and lice can get picked up from raccoons! Raccoon round worm is an intestinal parasite which raccoons can pass to people. Raccoon Roundworm spores are in the poop of a raccoon (we call them raccoon droppings) These spores can be dried in the raccoon droppings, and blow with the wind when disturbed. It can got into your eye, or lungs, then incubate into a worm!
Pet Raccoons The idea of having a pet raccoon some look forward to realising. But the truth is, that raccoons are wild animals. They should be left in the wild. A sick or injured raccoon should be cared for by a rehabilitator with a license issued by the state. Raccoons need to be dewormed and have shots to protect from distemper and rabies.
