Where is my Crown!

Don’t all beauty Queens get Crowns? I think mine should be made of Peppermints…….It has been a most trying day and I deserve that crown. CoatiMom was feeling under the weather and Clyde was very quick to get us both in trouble…. So, after our Sunday brunch and some play time we spent most of the day in our room…What am I going to do with Clyde! He is never going to learn not to break and spill things. He is such a little mess maker.. What’s a Diva like me supposed to do now…..

Sometimes it’s just good to be me!

From time to time I get to babysit or foster care for other coatis. It’s always a joy having a new baby in the house. Coati Daddy loves it because I can have all the baby coatis I want without the expense of long term. If it where up to me I would buy a million acres and run my own Zoo! Here’s a few pics of some of the beautiful babies that have had a sleep over with The Coatikids…..

A Spring day in December?

What a beautiful weather day, sunny and warm. It it a perfect day for all the CoatiKids to play outside. I put Bonnie and Clyde and sweet little Raven in the outdoor pen. Next I opened the door and let big boy Lucky loose in the back yard. He loves to roam for food. Our little foster child Sneakers had a fit! All alone and not having any of that, she dashed out the back door and down the stairs to the coati play pen to join the others. I was surprised at her boldness but she is much too little to be loose and to my surprises too big to fit thru the bars. I scooped her up and put her in the inside playroom until I could fix a nice big brunch for them all. I made them a bucket full of grapes, paypaya,cereal, mixed veggies, carrot sticks, peanuts, 5 scrammbled eggs and assorted dog bones and a scoop of their regular food. A Coati Feast ! My babies have been stuck inside for a bad weather week, so I let them make a mess and enjoy themselves. I got mugged by Lucky on the way to the pen with the food bucket and he quickly jumped inside the pen to get his share. While everyone was busy chowing down, I decided to let little Sneakers into the outside pen. So far so good, everyone is munching and playing and having fun in the sun.

No jail time for me!!!

I had the best time yesterday. Mom gave me to run of the house with our little foster girl, Sneakers. I had so much fun and mom says I was very good. I didn’t break anything or pee on the floor. Bonnie thinks she is “all that.” Well there a new girl on the block and I am here to stay!!!

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!
