Well, here it is, direct from the horse's mouth:

Hi Mica. You're going to hate this but... I don't exactly remember. I don't think they're related though as Ninjara was a fox and Mezcaal a coyote and I seem to remember toying with the idea that Raph was into canine girls. ;o) Which would make me think that the two women were NOT related. It would be too weird if they were.

Hope all is well,

Okay, I was wrong. Mez is a coyote, not a wolf. Only certain breeds of canines can interbreed, so we know that Mez isn't decended from Ninjara.
I did a little research, and any kids between Mokoshan and Ninjara would be doxes (Dog/Wolf-Fox hybrids) and it's never been confirmed that that combo is viable/fertile. (but I guess it is in TMNTA world, since I think Ninjara has a kid in Furrlough issue with her in it, however, whether that kid is fertile or not, who knows)
It WOULD be too weird if Ninjara was Mezcaal's ancestor. Rather twisted.
