    Full grown raccoon can easily kill any house cat, feral or not. However, they have been seen to get along quite nicely together sometimes. I knew people who had a very large tomcat and they said they would see him and a local raccoon sitting side by side on their deck watching the neighborhood. A full grown male raccoon is more than a match for just about any dog. We had a female raccoon "adopt" us a few years ago. She somehow learned to climb the raccoon baffle on my bird feeder - the only raccoon to do so - and trained me to toss her a dog biscuit when I yelled her down. I named her Fido. She was around for about 4 years, RIP. She would come up on the deck to visit us from time to time. I thought for a long time about attaching a four or five foot handle to a pet brush and trying to brush here, but decided against it. Photo shows here begging at the door. I think she might have been raised by people or rescued because the first time I ever saw her at the bird feeder, I threw a small rock at her, and missed. She scrambled down, ran to the rock, and gave me the dirtiest raccoon look you can imagine.

Using them as my wildlife army to oust the invasive species vermin cats. I learned (and am still learning) much about the behavior of wild raccoons. Some of them to this day still bring their cubs around during whelping season to show them off to me, or pawn their kids off on me for a day or two to get a much needed break from their little woodland terrorists. Their kids playing tug-o'-war with my bootlaces as the mother will lay belly-up alongside me snoring away. (Then I don't see them again until next year.)

    Doesn't matter the size of the cat, a raccoon will win hands-down every time. They are some of the toughest (and smartest) wildlife on the N. American continent. I've seen them fall from a tree 40 feet up (during a fight in a tree with another raccoon) with half their face torn-off and after landing with a loud thud climb back up the tree to continue on in their fight. I swear, that when they get into these squabbles, that if someone was out by the dirt-road at night listening to the screeching and growling going on back here in the woods, someone would think that I'm torturing a dozen animals to death. LOL (They still respect me for some reason though and have never challenged me, even if I take their food away from their plate while they are eating. (Well, one did just one time, but that was solved with a hefty whap upside its head with a food-pan.) They've been more respectful than some dogs I've owned. Some so gentle (when they want to be) that they'd even want to hold my hand with a paw while they eat, or as I tweak their nose while they eat, just for fun. These are completely wild raccoons, mind you.)

    That being said, there's something that even a full-grown adult raccoon will not dare take-on. During the development of yearling raccoons, there comes a time when a litter of them outgrow the needs of being around their female parent. But they also aren't sure enough of the world to face it alone. So they form "gangs" with their siblings. I call it their "juvenile delinquent" phase. Not even a full-grown alpha raccoon will dare take-on one of these packs of roving juvenile-delinquent gangs. I've seen a pack of these juvenile raccoons chase every last one of 20-30 adult raccoons out of my yard just to show them who's boss. The adults don't even think about challenging them back.

    Is a dickhead.
    No animals is vermin.
    And how to you have a name like "Nature Advocate " yet consider any as vermin.
    Also I hope someone shoots you and your family.

    Don’t mistake Raccoon for a squirrel, Raccoon is bigger and deadlier than a squirrel. It always dangerous and terrifying to have Raccoons roaming around your house. Just take a look at them and decide for yourself, scary looking little creature nature has blessed us with. If you don’t know how to get rid of raccoons, better seek professional help. At Star Pest Control, we use effective means to get rid of raccoons.

    Well, in all of the Stories where Cats are killed by Raccoons the Cats are always either old or too young. That story where a Coon killed 16 or so Cats, well, they were mostly kittens. Also, when faced by a truly Wild Cat which is a true Killer, a Raccoon will be in trouble. I have seen Cats face off against Bears, Alligators, and Pitbulls and drive them off successfully. Also, Raccoons tend to fight in groups, they will gang up against a Cat!.. there was a story on Washington state where Packs of Raccoons would target Cats and Small dogs, so... I think we are giving too much credit to the Raccoon. After all, Felines are the most evolved and greatest Killer in the Animal kingdom... Siberian Tigers hunt and kill Large Russian Brown Bears, to Tigers Grisly Bears (the Siberian Russian counterpart of the Grisly Bear that is) are food!. It be great if someone could actually take video of a real Coon and Cat fight. There are on youtube several videos, in one a Female Cat takes on two Raccons and a Possum, and drives them away!... how come no one mentions that huh???

    Here is my proof on which species is tough as nails.
    I have many bear photos with coon four feet away.
    I never saw a feral cat or a Bobcat stand his ground to a bear.
    I've seen videos of cats chasing bears away from garbage cans.

    Yeah, I guess jcarlin, the one's I grappled with were a little too large for me. As soon as I pushed the

    Agreed.
    Though admittedly I did spend an hour this morning grappling with large men.

    NA, you strike me as one who enjoys exposing yourself, so in order to give you a chance, why don't you post some pictures of yourself making love to your coons ? If we don't see any, we will take it that you are too ashamed of
    your favorite activity, btw which any normal person would be, but that should not be a problem for you !!

    Hmm. I will not have to reevaluate myself in light of this revelation.
    eh.. we're done here.

    At the risk of giving another resident-troll a snack ...

    jearlin, the only person's nature that has been fully revealed is your very own. In how you just now managed to so succinctly project to the the whole world the kind of imagery that you entertain in your very own mind. I guess it's just your way of coming out of the closet to all of your more masculine friends. That's okay, I won't tell anyone -- I don't have to, you manage to tell them all by your little self without even realizing it.

    Ah. Nature's nature is now fully revealed. One should consider spending more time washing the orange off of one's unit from eating cheese curls and touching one's self at their computer and less time trolling websites in which one has no real interest.

I've seen a pack of these juvenile raccoons chase every last one of 20-30 adult raccoons out of my yard just to show them who's boss. The adults don't even think about challenging them back.
    bowhunter75richard, you appear to be suffering from what most urban, cyber-reality, armchair-hunting, weekend-warriors, suffer from -- a terminal case of mommny's-basement-dwelling pavement-brain. I only proved your delusions, conspiracy-theories, and paranoia 100% wrong; now you're all butthurt because of it. Boo-hoo, too bad, so sad. Go find another pretend target for your pretend cyber-bow & cyber-arrow.

    During a period of time when my lands were being infested by vermin invasive-species cats for nearly two decades, I spent quite a few years helping the native predator populations to increase in numbers (at one point I counted as many as 60 assorted native predators in my yard some nights). Using them as my wildlife army to oust the invasive species vermin cats. I learned (and am still learning) much about the behavior of wild raccoons. Some of them to this day still bring their cubs around during whelping season to show them off to me, or pawn their kids off on me for a day or two to get a much needed break from their little woodland terrorists. Their kids playing tug-o'-war with my bootlaces as the mother will lay belly-up alongside me snoring away. (Then I don't see them again until next year.)

    Doesn't matter the size of the cat, a raccoon will win hands-down every time. They are some of the toughest (and smartest) wildlife on the N. American continent. I've seen them fall from a tree 40 feet up (during a fight in a tree with another raccoon) with half their face torn-off and after landing with a loud thud climb back up the tree to continue on in their fight. I swear, that when they get into these squabbles, that if someone was out by the dirt-road at night listening to the screeching and growling going on back here in the woods, someone would think that I'm torturing a dozen animals to death. LOL (They still respect me for some reason though and have never challenged me, even if I take their food away from their plate while they are eating. (Well, one did just one time, but that was solved with a hefty whap upside its head with a food-pan.) They've been more respectful than some dogs I've owned. Some so gentle (when they want to be) that they'd even want to hold my hand with a paw while they eat, or as I tweak their nose while they eat, just for fun. These are completely wild raccoons, mind you.)

    That being said, there's something that even a full-grown adult raccoon will not dare take-on. During the development of yearling raccoons, there comes a time when a litter of them outgrow the needs of being around their female parent. But they also aren't sure enough of the world to face it alone. So they form "gangs" with their siblings. I call it their "juvenile delinquent" phase.

    To NA, I take no offence to being called a idiot, and to that you may well be correct. However, I have in my
    years on this earth been called much worse, and that has been by people much better than what you are now
    appearing to be !!! You have stepped into the wrong arena to be throwing your bull shit. It would probably be
    better for your therapist to find you another venue to air your toxic comments !!
