Help me remember the titles of two books I read as a kid. I've Googled extensively and came up empty on both.

#1: Featured a boy who had a pet coatimundi. I read it around 1992, as I became fascinated with coatis as a result and did a 7th grade research paper on them. Sorry, I have no other details on this other than it was a kids/young adult chapter book.
#2: A young adult mystery novel featuring a girl named Adele who went to live with her father (in Florida, I think?). She sneaked her Siamese cat into the apartment without him knowing, and hid it in her private bathroom. The apartment building was filled with crazy characters, including a military type who paraded around and wanted to be called General, and an elderly couple who wound up being cat burglars. Adele and her friend solved the mystery of the burglaries and the Siamese cat had kittens at the end.
I loved these books as a kid and now that my niece is around the age that I was when I read them, I'd like to find copies for her. Thanks for your help!
