Eldorado update

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category: , , , , , ,

Pua and he were both up early but Pua didn't want to go out so I leashed him up and took him out for a bit then brought him back in.

Eldorado is trying with Pua. Night before last he was standing his ground but would keep his claws down as he stood there till pushed by Pua. Seems Eldorado read some notes on how to tame a wild animal. It's often said when taming an animal to just spend time quietly sitting near them. One time he spent some time last night sitting quietly at the edge of Pua's comfort zone. He took an unassuming position with his side to her and not looking at her. Pua was not happy but the boy is trying.

Last night after Pua had her time outside and I closed her in she just stayed in her washer and I played with her in there. She did not want to deal with him last night so was hiding out. Once he did get onto the sink from coming the long way around, other wise I was blocking him, and she came out to drive him off. There were tufts of Eldorado hair on the sink after and I notice now he has several places where she has pulled hair from him in these bouts. He hasn't hurt her and her claws are dull but seems she can still pull fur.

I feel so bad for them both right now. He's just trying to settle in and she just wants him gone, gone, gone. I did play with him some last night too. He likes attacking the stuffed toys and poking at them. He'd like an anteater friend but Pua is having no part of it. And poor Pua is so insecure now in her own room.

I still hope being the same sub species and oddly mellow she will take better to the new guy when he comes to try out.
