So I had it all set up but had to wait and wait and wait for the anteaters to get up.

"It's laundry day! It's laundry day! Yay oh Yay! It's laundry day!" Okay mom quit being so cheerful about it.

Ori's first order of business seems to be to try and destroy the new giant house. Darn it that's for sleep you got logs to claw up. ~ Pua's Mommy

10AM
Aurora was not sure at first but after seeing Ori in the house she decided she likes it both are curled up inside. Early Christmas present. They needed more space. Only now they are curled up in the back leaving room for another anteater or two but they both weren't fitting in the old one. Ori was always spilling out and Aurora had some wear spots in her fur.

Lots of anteater stuff, outside time and some modeling

Dec 3rd
5:30PM Aurora was sleeping in the closet till Ori came to join her, pushed under her and made her play.

11PM
Snuggled with mom before heading to the closet tonight.

11:30PM
Mom washed the hammock and soon as mom hung it back up Ori went in it to sleep. At least she let mom get it hung up. Ori normally hops in before she's got all corners up.

Dec 4th
12:30AM
Aurora woke up moody tonight but I've talked her into playing with me in the hammock

Dec 5th
12:30AM
Can you believe I'm still sleeping? The others are up and playing and eating. They slept in the hammock together during the day

12:40AM
Okay, Okay I'm up. Ketchup time.

A tamandua toddling toward you on two legs in a dark room at 3 am is a little odd looking but not pee in you pants worthy as one YT commenter once said they would react. Pua walked from the closet at me wanting a treat.
~Pua's mommy

Dec 6th
10:30AM Got up had some ketchup and back to bed.

5PM Under 30F outside. Glad my washer is nice and toasty. I don't think I'll get up any time soon.

Was playing with Ori in the little hammock last night while she climbed around hanging from the outside.


10:30AM Was up had some ketchup, time with mom, checked the closet but no one was there so had a bit of cheese and back to bed.


5PM Humans are odd. They spent the day pickling and canning radishes and radish relish. They should stick to ants. Find them, eat them, done.

11:30PM
Went to the back to pee but forgot the little fabric house isn't there any more headed for my second choice of a corner and got put in the cat box. I filled it up and came back to my room to see the others.

Dec 9th
12:20AM
Aurora's grumpy tonight. She didn't want to share the hammock with me

1AM
Was feeling a bit moody too but now Aurora is finally playing with me.

1:20AM
Didn't last long so I went to cuddle and play with mom but now I'm done and not sure what to do with myself.

Mom, that comment wasn't nice. You need to ban them from the internet.

11AM I'm up but mom says I can't go for a walk when it's in the 30's. She needs to fix that then. I thought the temperature was her job.

11:44PM
Too cold to go out, too late to go out, bah humbug.

Dec 10th

12:10AM
Odd found a tiny ant on Ori she didn't want it so I gave it to Pua. Maybe was from their log. ~Pua's mommy

11AM
I knew it was going to be laundry day so I got up and went into the hammock after my ketchup.

I went to see Santa at the barbers. I was a bit hyper with it being laundry day and I accidentally scratched him with a back nail trying to get down. He wasn't wearing gloves like last year. He was nice about it but keeping claws crossed I don't get coal. The photos did come out blurry though she was supposed to email better photos but it hasn't happened yet :(

3:30PM
I went for a hike in the woods after Santa but mom forgot to bring a camera. It was cold, lots of frost but I had fun anyway mom just didn't let me go as far as I wanted. I did take a break and run around the outside of the little shopping center too. The Boy scouts selling trees weren't too excited "that's just our neighbor".

11:43PM
Aurora went outside for a bit. I guess she wanted an adventure too.

12:30AM Did not want that wool blanket tonight. I knew laundry was done so complained till I got the nice quilt.

Dec 13th
Ori was just hanging from the hammock grooming my rump while I claw at the log.

Wild crazy hammock wrestling and Ori's going nuts hanging from things too

Aurora ran around outside for a bit. Mom Put a jacket on her. She didn't mind at first but then she got her feet in the belt strap cuz it was too lose. She was POed about the rescue.

The human fails to acknowledge her slave status. She should not be mauling my royal person with her lowly human paws. I insisted she bring me some blue cheese when we got back in ~ Aurora

Tried to get her to stand a second time but this time she rolled over. Which is a good trick too so I gave her the treat but then she quit.
