99-Year-Old Woman Wakes Up To Find A Kinkajou Sleeping On Her Chest

Kinkajous are rarely seen outside the Central and South American rainforests they call home, so any animal lover who spots one outside of these regions should consider themselves lucky.

But what should you consider yourself when you wake up in your bed in Miami, Florida with a cute little kinkajou sleeping on your chest?

Chances are the 99-year-old lady from Miami who woke up to a cuddly kinkajou encounter didn't feel very lucky, she was too busy freaking out after realizing that animal curled up on her chest wasn't a cat.

The scared little critter ran off to the attic, but her son-in-law was able to lure him out with some treats and take him to a vet, where it was discovered that he was an escaped pet. I would have had a really hard time giving him up, he's so darn cute!

Poor kinkajou who will never live among the trees and find a mate to have some more kinkajous. Now all it will be as just a 'pet', destined to live it's life of abstinence until it dies.
