Meet the Coati Mom

Hi and Welcome to our little family blog. We are just having some fun and enjoying our life together. My Coatis bring me so much joy that I wanted to share some of it with the rest of the world. I get asked one question alot, How did I ever get into keeping coatis? The answer is one of those do as I say not as I do answers. I knew what coatis were, our vet breeds them. to make a long story short, I went with Coati Daddy to met one of his associates from work and he was also a coati breeder. He was showing off some babies and the next thing we knew we where leaving with little Bonnie and Clyde. Unprepared (very bad thing to do) we took them straight to our vets. We quickly followed all her instructions and she fixed us up with baby bottles, tail bandages (they had tail injuries reasons unclear) and started the correct shots, neutering and such. Luckily they were so small that they could live in a dog crate until we built and bought better habitats for them. 8 months later along came Clyde (purchased from our vet) then 6 months after that Raven was born(we had been put on a waiting list). After enjoying the company Bonnie and Clyde ( Mountain coatis), we knew we also wanted a pair of Whitenosed Coatis. 2 years later we are all as happy as we can be. From time to time, I get to foster care for our vets babies so I get to continue raise babies which I just love doing. I am not an official coati rescuer but, I will help an abandoned coati in need in addition to volunteer wildlife rescue work. It’s always an interesting day in our house!
