Rehomed: June 2, 2016

Gender: Female

Classification: Coatimundi (Nasua narica)

Information: Squeakers is a South American coatimundi rehomed on June 2, 2016 from Las Vegas, NV. For 12 years, she was a very loved and pampered private pet, along with her “brother”, Mischief. Their parents had recently moved and sadly, their HOA would not allow them to be kept as pets.

It took some time, but we finally found a flight for both Squeakers and Mischief. There had to be no more than 1 layover and the temperature had to be just right! Dr. Stuart, our Animal Health Coordinator, flew out to meet them and their parents and the following day, flew back to Jacksonville on the same flight.

When she first arrived, she and Mischief were kept in isolation – indoors with our Director. She received a vet check-up by Dr. Avery, per usual. They are quite well-behaved and enjoy accompanied walks around the sanctuary when we’re closed! They have now been adjusted to their outdoor enclosure and enjoy climbing and enjoying their new home. They are very affectionate and love to give hugs, too! They are missed dearly by their humans but do stay in touch through FaceTime.

Ultimately, she may be introduced to Cody and/or Callie, our other coatimundis, to see if they can live together. Although they don’t care for raw meat, they get a balanced diet of rotisserie chicken, brown rice, pasta, some soups, monkey biscuits, eggs, and fruit! She LOVES lo mein noodles as a treat! She is a bit more social than Mischief, as females would be, and loves any and all attention!

Be sure to look, and listen, for her when you visit! She squeaks, just like her namesake!

Information: Mischief is a mountain coatimundi rehomed on June 2, 2016 from Las Vegas, NV. For 9 years, he was a very loved and pampered private pet, along with his “sister”, Squeakers. Their parents had recently moved and sadly, their HOA would not allow them to be kept as pets.

He enjoys Gatorade, fruit popsicles and marshmallows as treats, of course. He never misses a meal!

Be sure to look for him on your next visit! He is sure to be scavenging for bugs or rearranging Squeakers blankets!

Information: He is a white-nosed coatimundi born in early June that had been a private pet from South Florida. The previous owners were moving and were unable to take him with them. When he first arrived, we kept him in isolation to protect him and all our other animals. He received vaccinations and vet check-ups just like a puppy or kitten. Ultimately, he may be introduced to Callie, our other coatimundi, to see if they can live together. He loves to climb and explore his new home, burrowing in his blankets and hunting for delicious insects. He eats raw meat, veggies and lots of fruit. He enjoys cookies and marshmallows as treats, of course.
