Happy Birthday to me!
Mom had this all set up for me and was waiting on my arrival. I waited till she was distracted and came out to sample my snacks. I had a few ants and tasted the sour cream but was disappointed it wasn't yogurt. I did get a super special tiny taste of ketchup in one of my new mugs, sucked the seeds from on of my grape tomatoes and rolled the big one off the the side, oh and tasted the chia seeds. Soon as mom took a photo though I decided the party was over so am now napping in my princess hammock. I will be snacking all night though.

Aurora let me have the washer for my birthday. She is sleeping in the closet. I got some snuggles with mom last night and only bugged her a couple of times for treats.

Aurora has been up for a snack

Sharing the washer but I'm up having a groom.

This requires vinegar. Time for a vinegar bath.

When your tail looks like a sake predators are less likely to sneak up on your from behind.

Okay off to the closet nest.

Big loud boom boom. Now Hyzzie dog is under the covers shaking like a leaf.
Had my wake up snack now taking my wake up nap in my princess hammock.

Hello there

Hyzzie had the best 4th ever. She slept through the booms a combo of AC on and the washer going and old ears and maybe a bit of magic.

Yesterday I had the washer while Aurora had the closet but today we are sharing the washer.

I left the washer for a bit to sleep in my hammock then I went to sleep in the closet but after awhile I returned to the washer to spend some more time with Aurora.

My wake up snack of blue cheese is supposed to have soaked chi seeds mixed in. This is unacceptable. I will not eat this!

Now you've added the chia seeds? Okay then, that's better.

Mom and I were snuggling and having a chat and she mentioned my dearly departed mate Stewie. I looked up at her quickly at the name and looked at her intently. "You still remember his name?" Of course I do! He was my mate! Then I bowed my head and covered my eyes for a moment with my arms. Stewie was a good loving mate and very handsome.


I have a lovely vinegar bath last night, played with Aurora and ventured onto the bed to visit mom. Beaker got Nosey though and I don't like that. I started in the washer but moved to the closet. Aurora has the washer. She spends more time in it than me now but the closet is right by the AC.

Aurora: I went out for a noon time stroll but it was hot so I made it a short one. When I came back in Pua was up looking for me. When I went to climb up on the shelf she started poking my hands and batting at me trying to play, um excuse me but I'm trying to CLIMB here.

Then she took to following me around as I ran around inside instead. So at one point when I turned and she continued on past me I leaped on her rear and did a sneak attack. We battled briefly but then she continued on into the washer instead of chasing me.

I continued with my rounds but slipped climbing the cat tower. I fell back onto the next level on my bum only to bounce and land in the stuffed toy basket.I continued on to the step ladder and tried to act like it never happened.

Also I like hanging upside down from the shelf when I sniff out the window.

PS the servant tried to give me lite sour cream. This is unacceptable. I do like that homemade sour cheese stuff she makes though. Pua ate that lite stuff. She's a little piggy.

OMG! I lifted the lid to go in the washer and Pua sprang out like a crazed jack in the box waving her claws. I was so startled I hissed and ran away. I guess once I'm done running around It's the closet shelf for me.

Aurora: I decided to try going back to the washer at first Pua popped out and I backed off again but then I came back and ignored her and shoved my way in anyway and she poked at my hands to welcome me.

We're in the washer again today. Aurora did think about taking a noon time stroll but decided to stay in and just had a snack of buttermilk before rejoining me.

I have moved to my princess hammock.

Mom just found a big claw shed on the cat tree. Maybe that's why Aurora fell the other day.

My ants will finally be here on Monday! Yay.
We're sharing the washer today and we had a nice fresh log to tear into last night.

Mom seems to have misplaced her camera but we are currently splayed out in the washer. I got my arm over Aurora's rump with my head nestled down behind it.

Kind of hyper tonight. I need treats. Lots of treats. I had some snuggle time with mom too and some open window sniffing time. I even though about going out before it was too late but didn't do it.

I went for a walk today. We went to the fish hatchery trail. We were a bit nervous since this was my first walk since the last one almost killed me. I put on a brave face and ran along and had fun with my tail up and we bot relaxed and had fun. I even pooped in the ferns.

I was running along again and then I heard them, assassins on the trail ahead. I stopped and listened. I could hear them muttering their plans to kill us. Mom said it was just tourists reading the guide posts. I know what I hear mom. RUN!

I ran for my life and started trying to climb trees to safety but mom kept stopping me and offering me my safety carry bag instead. Ugh, someone peed in that earlier and it's safer in the tree tops. So mom started singing me my birthday song. I like that song it has my name in it a lot "Happy birthday to Pu..."

That helped and we continued heading back to the car from there. Then I heard someone screaming and being beaten by chains. Mom claimed that was a rusty gate blowing in the wind. Mom needs to get her ears checked. I decided to run in the other direction.

The forest was haunted and filled with scary sounds. I could smell myself on the trees but I couldn't remember the right way and I've normally got a tremendous sense of direction. So mom started guiding me but I finally gave up and got in my carry bag one of the times she offered it and let her carry me back to the car.

I didn't come out in the car. I didn't even peek out. I refused to come out till the bag was safely placed in my room. I'm in the closet nest now. I don't think I want to go outside again, ever.

I was just trying to make a fridge raid and then got trapped in the arctic. Mom had to save me.

Fridge raid gone wrong
Help, I climbed in the freezer and can't get out

I don't like these new ants. These ants suck. They don't smell the same as last time. I prefer my soaked chia seeds. Soaked chia seeds even win over blue cheese but I still like my blue cheese.

Mom's been grumbling about wanting to hose out the washer but there always being an anteater in there. So Aurora is sleeping under the bed and I started out in the closet but by the time mom dressed and walked the dogs I was in the washer again. I kept coming out when mom was busy,like making a batch of anteater food, then being back in by the time she was done. It was funny but I finally let her hose it out a bit ago so am in the closet again.

Back in the washer now. So clean, a fresh poofy blanket, so nice.

 Pua's first big fridge raid
Mom left me to walk the dogs. These ants don't taste as bad when they are stolen.

Up and having a good groom.

Thunk, bump, oh okay Aurora is under the bed today.

I didn't feel like sleeping in the washer with Aurora so I came out and draped myself over the edge of the sink on tip toes and shoved my snout down the drain to sleep.

So mom comes over and starts messing with me and asking whats wrong. What's wrong is you're keeping me awake! I got a treat out of it though and have gone to my princess hammock now.
Mom turned the AC up. I'll give the washer another shot.
Aurora went out for a stroll around the yard today then went and wanted to sleep under grandma's bed but mom had to make her come home so she slept in the washer with me.

We are both up and playing in the closet nest. Aurora stepped outside but heard a scary noise so came in and we are entertaining each other.

I started to go outside after play time but I heard a scary noise too and came in. Then Aurora decided to go out and stayed out for a long time. She even found some ants.
