Badger, badger, badger, badger. LOL Janice, but I'm afraid that yesterday was trash-talking day. Today humble pie is on the menu.

Locking the drawers might be a mistake if there are raccoons in the house. I assume that if their curiosity is frustrated, they could take the drawer apart to see what was there.

The drawers aren't locked here, but then I have only 4 and they don't slide out with wheels on rails, just simple friction. But most of the doors are locked, one way or another, just to keep Grace out.

I'm afraid that Eric absolutely insists that all my little woodland friends remain outside, all of the time.

Those are 'ferals' though, what if you adopted a baby and raised it?? (I couldn't do it, they are more mischievous than any critter, and have the hands to get into everything. Not to mention their voracious appetites.) :-)

Anyways I'm sure California has some laws against raccoons and probably several other types of animals, being kept as pets.

According to this site and a few others, Well I'll just quote this Official CA Dept of fish and Game website...

It is not only illegal to keep raccoons (or any wildlife) as pets or in captivity, but it also may be dangerous. Wild animals such as raccoons can become very aggressive and dangerous to both humans and pets as they mature. In addition, they can carry diseases and parasites that can present health risks to humans. Wildlife need to be kept wild for their safety and well-being, as well as ours. Only people who are permitted by DFG (for example, licensed wildlife rehabilitators or exhibitors) may keep wildlife in captivity. To report this situation, please contact our CalTIP line at 1-888-334-2258.
