She decided not to go out because the neighbor's dog was barking. So she hung out in the sink.

Eldorado circled the room several times that night with me blocking the way to Pua with a blanket. When I had to carry him away he finally decided to do something else and went under the bed, then clawed a hole in the bottom of the box spring and went inside. So I had to stand guard near Pua till he came back out.

Was hoping he'd make less mess. He did still flip it later but did make less of a mess over all with his food.

I'm tired of you sniffin around like a hound dog. I told you I'm not interested. I'm through being nice about it."

Pua was confident she wanted to deal with Eldorado herself last night, so I dropped the blanket barrier and after a few smacks from her he fled. Guess he's got some honor after all. He didn't want to hit a lady. Well a lady anteater any way, lol. He tried to take his frustrations out on me after. He went in his cage and when I came over he came out trying to get me. Aggressive little snot. But if I'm not having to keep him away from Pua it might go better.

I think we need to add some limbs or hand holds.

Laundry day today. Pulled Pua from the washer and she was wrapped up in a pee soaked blanket, ew. Why? "It's simple mom, nothing wants to mess with pee" Well I certainly don't, lol. So in the wild a predator would come along smell all that pee and move on thinking it's someone's latrine? Hmm, an interesting thought as to why many tamanduas will pee where they sleep. Conversely Eldorado likes her pee enough to bath in it.

Eldorado found a new fun thing to do. Night before last he tore a hole in the under side of the box spring and went inside and explored for awhile. I tried to block that and last night he tore a new hole. I stopped him going in by holding his tail. I avoided getting clawed by letting go soon as he gave up and pulled his claws from the hole.
