Aurora: When the human brought me my cocktail in the washer she could not sit it down as when I would move the blanket would move the bowl so I was forced to let her hold the bowl as I saw the issue too.

I would slurp, slurp, slurp, then lick her thumb then slurp, slurp, slurp, then lick her thumb, till I'd had my fill then I told her to go away.

We have officially made up for last night but my soup bowl best be in it's rightful place when I get up.

Aurora: I went outside today. It wasn't too cold. I mostly stuck to the back yard but circled around front some too. The neighbor's dogs barked at me. I don't like that.

I was pestering mom for treats last night but she finally said enough and go eat my food. So I took Aurora on a fridge raid. I've not done that in a long time as mom changed some stuff and I have to go on the floor to get there now but it's not as scary with Aurora.

I got it open but mom came and pushed me back across the floor and closed it and locked it. Somehow Aurora didn't notice and got tired of my incompetence and shoved me out of the way and tried to open it herself. When it failed to open for her as well she turned and pounced on me starting a play battle.

I lead the battle into mom's lap. She was thrilled. All went well till Beaker came along and was all "Hey ladies!" Then Aurora noticed him and the fact she was in a human's lap.

After that we took the battle under the bed. Running, tumbling, and bashing around under there, it was great.

Had my supplements this morning then was asking for a real treat. There was great long strands of goo running down from my snout. Mom says that better not be from your nose. Nah it was from my mouth. Those supplements tasted funny. Anteater spit is very sulglime/booogery like so mom wasn't sure at first.
Then I lay out for a bit till mom gave me a fresh blanket and some ants. Though I have been going back and forth between the closet and washer since.
I've just finished a noon time vinegar bath and am back in the washer. That felt good, much needed.

'Aurora: Why is the lid open?'
'Pua: You got treats.'
 'Oh my! The human's out there.'
Good Morning ladies.

Mom's been changing stuff around again, and I got avocado.
I'm sleeping in my princess hammock today.

I moved to the closet half way through the day and burrowed down into the fresh blanket. I also talked myself into a couple treats.

Mom came to the closet to put this crib sheet on as a shelf cover for the outer closet shelf. Something about it being super difficult to clean. I guess it makes a cute shelf cover.

Anyway Aurora and I are sharing the closet and I was belly up so mom rubbed my belly. So I grabbed her and hugged her tight with all four limbs and used her arm for a pillow. When I dozed off she tried to make a silent exit but being a big human she always makes lots of noise.

Oh she also bought a crib bumper and cut into sections for shelf covers for our travel shelves. Is she hinting at us being big babies, with all this baby stuff?

I got a tree for the anteaters this year. They didn't mess with it yet though. Hyzzie was being all cute under it but then she saw I had the camera so came running. She always does that to me.

Aurora: Started out snuggled with Pua in the washer then she left me for the closet. So I got up and started pacing to try and get her to follow me back to the washer. It didn't work. I had some soup and kept trying. The human put a fresh blanket in the washer so eventually I gave in and settled back in the washer.

Switched things up yesterday. I slept in the washer and Aurora took the closet. Today we are both in the washer.



Aurora: I paced a bit then dinged the bell to get some more soup this morning. I had a bit then dinged the bell to say thanks. I did a few more laps taking sips of soup in between. Then I let the human know I needed a new blanket by going to the washer and sniffing then walking off again until she came to change it then I settled in. It may not be the most elegant form of communication but it works of us.

Pua is sharing the washer with me again today. We have both buried ourselves in the jungle blanket.

Dreaming of my afternoon ants. It's so real it's like I can still smell them!



Mom bought us a Christmas Tree this year. We have refused to mess with it. It's not rotten and buggy so what's the point?
