People have asked me if the coons walk right up to me? If they know me they do. When a coons has babies they will bring those babies to meet me when the babies are about 4 weeks old. The babies are usually afraid of me at first and it takes several times of coming for them to trust me. Than for the rest of that coons life it will know me as a person that they trust and will feed them. So you could say that I am a friend and as with a dog or cat that is forever. If they get hurt and have an infection I can put antibiotic ointment on them and they get better. I never knew how long a coon lives and really still don't. One of the coons is 8 years old this month!!
If you have more questions please ask.
Have a wonderful week-end. We are suppose to have bad storms Sunday.
Love you all, Bambi, Happy & Fern

  7. Hi Fern, I love hearing about them. How cute would it be to have a blog just about the coons? LOL! Do you have a shelter or house for them outside near your house? Do you put food out for them? Do you worry about them hurting Bambi? I hear they can get pretty nasty if they want to.

    Big hugs,
    Shannon and the Gang
