Unfortunately, we did not take "before" pictures of the coatimundi because we truly felt they would not survive and, we could not bring ourselves to take a photo of such a sad situation. But within a week, the infections were gone and we brought them home. It was winter time and we had no facility built for them.
We quickly hired a contractor to build a large cage in the breezeway of our house where they could spend the winter until we could build a proper enclosure in the spring. Now, if you have ever had the pleasure of being around coatimundi, you know they have a very strong odor. We could hardly wait till they had grown a coat of fur so we could move them out of the house.
In the spring we had a 16' x 33' foot chain link enclosure built onto our wallaby house where the 2 coati mundi could live in the upper part of this heated house. We built wood ladders, rope ladders and various branches arranged so that even though they are missing half of their fingers, they can still climb, just as in nature. Inside, there is a wood bench that Karrin often sits and let's them "groom" her hair, just as they do their own.
