After the 2014 BlogPaws conference, the Fearless Four visited our friend, Stacey, and her fabulous menagerie! Of course, Georgi brought her capybara, Mia!
Stacey has a lot of wild creatures with funny food names: 2 Sugar Gliders (Coconut & Pastrami), 2 Ferrets (Daikon & Cinnamon), 3 Hedgehogs (Poblano, Mochi & Mascarpone), 1 Blue Tongue Skink (Acai), 1 Short-Tailed Opossum (Iberico), 1 Red Eared Slider (Pepino), 1 Rose Hair Tarantula (Morel), 3 Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches (Scrapple, Vessie, & Haggis), 7 Cats (all rescue), and 2 Coatimundi (T Bone & Matza)
The Coatimundis were the craziest ones! I was excited to see them, having had a wild one cross my path in Panama!
The Coatimundis are cute and curious like raccoons, but a bit more excitable and into climbing and jumping like monkeys.
Coatimundis have a curious habit of sticking their heads into people’s mouths. By “people” I mean “Stacey.” They certainly didn’t stick their heads into MY mouth!
The Coatimundis get to run around the house, but they have a big closet outfitted with play equipment and toys.
You don’t want to know what those frozen morsels in the bag are, but they are obviously favorite Coati treats!
The Coatimundi’s really liked Coral. Well, who wouldn’t?
But then the Coatis discovered Mia, the capybara contingent of the entourage.
They checked out Georgi, and then T Bone became infatuated with Mia.
My first impression that T Bone’s specialty was Dentistry was quickly replaced by the realization that he is actually an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist.
Matza, obviously still an intern, observes T Bone’s technique.
Mia loves the attention!
The ear exam continues.
T Bone pronounces Mia’s ears to be in superb condition!
Mia takes a celebratory bath. Most guests don’t indulge in bathing during a casual visit, but Mia is not a typical guest, and in this household, the request is indulged without hesitation.
Meanwhile, we continued the menagerie tour! Poblano the hedgehog is quite photogenic, isn’t he?
Thank you, Stacey, for a most excellent tour!
