Just look through the topics. This site is a bit confusing, because many threads end up discussing something other than the original topic. I have learned things from threads that didnt sound at ALL like what I was looking for!
I asked this on another thread, but please tell me why you chose your name..? I used to feed a whole bunch of raccoons that lived in the forest behind my house. And yes, they do "wash" their food. They dunk it in water, and I( think that is a way of getting more water in. Raccoons are very, very intelligent. They knew who I was, just like a cat or dog.
