What exotic pet animal did I see in San Pedro, Belize?

I was walking in downtown San Pedro yesterday, and saw that a street vendor had an interesting little creature tied up on a leash next to her table. It was a little smaller than an average cat, had a long, pointed snout and a black nose, little black feet, and bristly greyish-beige fur. It was friendly, letting me pet it, nipping very gently at my hand and shirt, and trying to clamber up on me.
I wanted to ask the shopkeeper about it, but she was busy with an actual customer, and my phone was dead, so I couldn't take a picture; I thought I'd come back a little later, but when I did they were gone. Any ideas from the description? This is proving hard to google.
