The Adorable Raccoon Stuffed Animal

Even though teddy bear plush toys have been all the rage for more than one hundred years, over time wild animal plush have become increasingly popular. Raccoon stuffed animals, for example, are just one of the animal species that has garnered more and more interest of both collector’s and lovers of stuffed animals alike.

Raccoon stuffed animals look just like like the real thing; they have that mischievous black face mask which is what most people remember about these highly intelligent animals. Raccoons also have a signature big bushy black tail that is covered in five to ten black and brown rings. While raccoons generally have grey bodies, they can also vary in color from albino to black or brown. Most raccoon stuffed animals are made with grey plush fur, but they can also be found with brown plush as well.
Raccoons may look cute and cuddly but they don’t make great pets even though they are one of very few animals that can go from captivity, back to the wild; male raccoons have been known to become aggressive as they mature when in captivity thus they are usually set free. As is the case, a raccoon stuffed animal is a much better option.

Raccoons live in a wide variety of habitats requiring only water, food, and a protected type of ‘home’ in order for them to survive; this includes places such as swamps, marshes (both fresh and salt water), floodplain forests, and most cities all over North America. While raccoons are more known for their ability to climb, if forced to swim, they are very strong in the water. Taking a raccoon stuffed animal for a dip in either a pool, bath, or ocean, wouldn’t be wise it is a plush animal after all, and it’s fur wouldn’t do well if got wet.

Raccoons will eat just about anything they can get their paws on; in the wild, far away from city life, they eat frogs and various other small aquatic animals. Outside the water, they dine on mice and insects along with any eggs they can find in other animal nests. Raccoons also eat fruit and plants, though these are mostly scavenged from human gardens and farms. In addition, they are quite well known for taking the tops off of garbage bins and eating whatever contents they find inside.

Raccoon stuffed animals are not fussy eaters they need no food at all! They do require, however, lots of love and attention, especially the kind that comes in the form of hugs and kisses. While raccoons in the wild only live until they are two or three, a raccoon stuffed animal can be around for as long you want it to be.

Very Best Dog Food Brands

Many pet owners are looking for the best dog food brands, because of the tie between food and health.The simple answer is to find the best dog food brands you just need to look at the ingredients listed on the labels.

It would be great if that was the case, but with the encrypted code being used by the pet food companies, it is not that easy.

There are many people telling us healthy food to eat, but its a lot more difficult to find good information on a healthy diet for our pets.

The trouble here is that pet food producers are allowed to incorporate ingredients that are not for human consumption in their foods. It is sad that in today’s world those who manufacture dog food can use low quality by product ingredients and due to government regulations give the brand high quality healthy sounding names.

One would assume that finding dried egg product as a listed ingredient in dog food would make it healthier. I reality it can include undeveloped eggs, shells and other tissues deemed unfit for human use.

While doing my research to find the best dog food brands, I ran across a list of 68 ingredients that are used by some of the best brands, that should give you cause to stop feeding these brand to your dog. 41% of these ingredients can actually be fatal, maybe not right away but they will shorten your pets life.

I also found a free confidential dog food report written by a guy that has hired a testing firm to find the best dog food brands in North America. The report is copyright protected, so I cant re-print it in this article.

After analyzing most know commercially made dog food in North America they only found nine that were healthy enough to make the list.

The report also lists 27 well know brands that didnt make the cut, and give reasons why not. Some brands that aren’t good enough to make the list are Iams, Science Diet, and Eukanuba.

The report continues to be updated, and in this 2nd addition there are six brands that have been removed due to reasons listed in the report.
Every brand in the report has a reason why it is healthy or not.

From what I learnt about commercial dog food during my research, I now feed both our dogs a homemade diet, but there are times you just need to be able to pour some food out of a bag I personally wont risk the health of my best friends, because Im to lazy to either cook them food, or at the very least buy them one of the healthiest, best dog food brands I can find.
