A few times various scrapy dogs tried to win a fight with my pet raccoon. One was an unleashed Afghan 5 times "Moon's" size (I had her on a leash). Confrontation was over

in less than 10 seconds. Semi domsesticated raccoon the winner. In the end though I would not recommend a raccoon as a pet! A wonderful pet until her first heat cycle, after that the wild animal in her took over. All I can say is never underestimate the combative survival capabilities of a raccoon! Ferrets are interesting as they have been domesticated just enought to be good pets (for life) yet still have a good dose of their pre domesticated roots. Not to say that cats are not very capable of defending themselves!
