Rehomed: June 2, 2016

Gender: Male

Classification: Coatimundi (Nasua narica)

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.

It took some time, but we finally found a flight for both Mischief and Squeakers. 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 he first arrived, he and Squeakers were kept in isolation – indoors with our Director. He 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, he 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! 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!
