That was last night this morning found Pua back in the basket and Stewie went to join her after a snack so they are sharing now.

So he then kept pacing circles around the house and we took him for a hike. . It took him awhile to warm up to the idea and come out of the cary bag. He didn't go to far. He sniffed a peice of moss on the trail and got scared and headed back. It must have had an animal scent on it. He also got a little jumpy any time someone stepped on a leaf or something. I tried putting him in a shallow spot at the river but he didn't care at all. I put him on a rock and he marched right out but didn't care. Pua loves the river and has gone in a few times.

It's the new fashion, really, stop laughing

It's the new fashion, really, stop laughing Stewie's attempt to steal some soda goes terribly wrong. Soon as I took that off him he left.

Please don't litter

Please don't litter Stewie's public service announcement:
Animals can get their heads stuck in things like six pack rings and pop lids and yogurt cups. Please cut or crush them then dispose of them properly.

l'm not sure how dangerous those lids are but he managed to do this to himself when after a bit of soda. And animals have been injured and killed by those other things listed.

Not to get to serious but added those captions to the pictures on the photo site.

Time for some tuff love .

Which means I have to suffer a pesty anteater all night. I've tried to make sure she eats some of her food each night but she's gotton bad about only wanting her treats, blue cheese, baby milk, and fat. As shown in the photos she did eat some the other day when I was out of the room but she'd gotton bad about holding out for the "good stuff" that's not the best for her. So tonight she got a little baby milk blue cheese souce mixed with her food and that's it. She has to be happy with that, and she's not. She did finaly eat a little but she will be complaining to me all night. But once she finaly realises I wont give in any more she should go back to eating normaly then she can have a few treats too.
I sure wouldn't mind if she were a piggy like Stewie. He'll eat just about anything.

8/11

So Stewie was excited and playing attack a little ruff so made mistake number two and was using a little rug waved at him to attack. Mistake number one was putting off filing his nails when I knew they needed it but they don't get needle sharp like they used to. He missed the rug and his claw punctured the base of my nail! I thought he just caught my quick at first but then realized he was hooked in me. Lots of peroxide then soak in hottish water. Probably not the right thing but it felt good and it was really hurting. I got a nice purple nail bed now and a hole in the nail at the base.
Pua and Hyzzie were all over me realizing I was hurt but not knowing how to help. Now that we're settled in I had to tell Pua squeezing my thumb realy hard in her fist wasn't helping lol. I had to pry it loose and give her my finger instead.
The reason the rug was a mistake is they do respect flesh. For instance if you wear long sleaves you are more likely to get scratched or pinched. He wouldn't have done it so hard if he was after my hand. (it ealed up fine and didn't loose the nail, seen a similar injury on someone from a cat bite)

Pua has her ultrasound shcedualed for Friday at her original vet. Her new vet apparently doesn't have one and was given other numbers to call so I called Her first vet. Since figured being a livestock vet they would have to have one there so that works out good we get to do it with someone we know. It works out pretty good having two vets. So the mystery should be put to rest Friday.
Stewie had a fun surprise for his grandma this morning. She opened the washer reach to see what that thing was on top and he moved, haha. He learned to open it up last night. He opened and peaked in and closed it then opened and went in. Came back out then went in and had a nap and came back out then eventual went in there to sleep. I checked on him once but he was doing fine so left him and he eventualy joined us later so didn't realise he had gone back in there. I don't know anyone that would start a washer without looking in it first anyway but I think he only liked it since there was some stuff in it already. I pulled him out and he happily settled into bed with Pua.

8/17 the verdict

Well she didn't see anything except a big bladder and lots of movement in her bowel, which was telling, as she later pooped in her crate before leaving so we're running a fecal. We didn't run blood since she was to upset by then to do it safely. There was a lot going on with her that made me think pregnat so we'll watch her awhile and if she is to off or has problems we'll go get her a blood test at the Tamandua experienced vet(they didn't have an ultrasound so we saw her old vet). She did have a false pregnancy last year, compleate with false labor and mothering phase, so it could be something like that again too.
Pua's experienced vat basical said last time they are both beutiful and in great shape and I shouldn't worr so much. I just never got over worrying about my girl and having Stewie to compair her to actualy makes that worse. She is so rail thin compaired to him, it just doesn't show in the photos. So if she reamains problematic or looses any weight we'll go get her checked more in depth. At the very least a good blood report could help easy my worries over her.
Now to issue two "food" holding out on the goodies was working. She was eating a little more each night and doing better then last night she refused to eat untill I gave her some ground beef. So I mixed it with flaxseed and spinach and she still ate it. So toda mixed up a batch with spinach, flax, a few shrimp, 4 eggs, and a handfull of freeze dried lambs lung oh and come calcium supplament.
I joined a few raw feeding lists to try and get a good raw ground beef cat food recipie then can make it all up for her like I would the simple diet of catfood, flax/beans, and spinach. Just the ratios will differ since it will now be moist food.


On top of this news she did have some vaginal bleeding last night. She just had a bit of dried blood there when she woke Tuesday and nothing in between though ngiht but went through with the ultrasound as I wanted her to be checked.

What's for dinner?

What's for dinner? It's beef. Well long story. Pua was having some weird cravings and she started out with raw beef ribs. She got to not wanting her food and just her treats and I got tuff and with held treats so she'd eat her mix it was working then she just refused to eat anthing the other night. Not even blue cheese!! But when I offered her some ground beef she gobbled it down.

So I gave in to her and we made a new diet to make her happy. My simple diet, used occasionaly for convenience, was 1 cup cat food, half cup flax seed and or red beans powdered, and 1/4 cup spinach. So replacing cat food with the idea of a raw home made cat food, bearing in mind the moisture difference for volumes, this mix was a rough draft of, about 5 pounds ground beef, half cup of flax seed meal, 1/3 cup of spinach(fresh frozen not store frozen this time), 4 eggs, some calcium tablets ground in, a hand full of shrimp, and a fist full of powdered freeze dried lamb lung for organ meat, all run through the grinder.

The old simple diet was balanced and with a little tweeking this will be too so we can be healthy and indulge, ha. Even Stewie likes it he's more messy with it. Pua can eat a bowl clean and leave no mess around it. She was a bit messy in this shot because I didn't mix enough beef in yet and it was to pasty to eat easily.

More Stewie he's an active guy
