Aurora and Pua plus some Cinco

Pua and Aurora did really well Saturday night. She left Cinco and came down to see Pua. They were getting along but both were watching me, Pua begging so I offered Ketchup. Pua wound up defending her treat but then they were okay after.

Aurora is still watching her out the corner of her eye but was looking at me too.

I thought they might want treats but Aurora said no the ketchup so wanted to sniff Pua and Pua thought she was after her treat.

They were both looking at me so I offered treats but I should have gone with Blue cheese maybe because Aurora didn't want ketchup. Pua loves it though so smacked Aurora off camera when she came close while she was having hers. Later Aurora went down behind the washer and tried coming up behind the sink while Pua was drinking so she got defensive again so I took Pua to play for awhile so Aurora could get out. Sunday morning Aurora was on the shelf with Cinco and fell, but Cinco stayed on the shelf playing. She was a little rattled so this time she got defensive when Pua tried to pass her to get a drink. Pua decided to just turn in instead and went in the washer. Aurora looked confused by that but then returned to baby.

Aurora went behind the washer and startled Pua when she was drinking by trying to come up behind the sink. I took Pua to play then so she could get out. This morning Aurora was on the shelf with baby and fell but Cinco stayed on the shelf. She was rattled so hit Pua when she tried walking y for a drink, so Pua just went into the washer instead. That left Aurora confused so she returned to Cinco on the shelf. She curled up with him there but eventually went back to her hammock.

Aurora tried to go see Pua Sundat night but turned the faucet on by mistake and scared herself, in her panic turned it on full blast which scared her more. I got the water turned off and she fled up onto the shelves. She likes wedging herself and baby into the little corner of the book shelf. She moved back there Monday morning when waffle making noises scarred her.


Sit still and take your nap!

Aurora tried to hold Cinco so she could sleep but he just kept squirming all over. She kept trying to pin him down or block him in with her body but it wasn't working.

He kinda went in then came back out and is in mid u-turn.

She wanted to nap and he didn't.

When your little and left alone it helps deter predators by looking like something the cat coughed up.

Cinco was on top of mom so I called the family in so they could get a chance to see him. Aurora sat up then and he slid down behind mom. Then I saw him down on the second shelf, in the books. I had to dig him out and give him back to mom. At least everyone got to see him then and I slid the shelf back so he's not slip through again.


Aurora has been changing nesting spots fairly frequently. Aurora moved back and forth from the shelf nook to the hammock but had settled in the hammock with baby. Well, I woke up later with an anteater on the bed platform over my head and it wasn't Pua.
She got down quickly and wandered all over but went to the closest. She went back and forth between the closet and the circus hammock over the cage but settled in the closet.

Baby left behind got tired and took matters into his own claws. He climbed the wood post at the edge of the platform then reached over and climbed into the hammock. Well, he was struggling a bit so I helped boost him in.

Aurora wouldn't quite settle and seemed scared to come back across the room so I took baby out of the hammock. I was going to hold him against me so he'd be more comfy but realized I'd have a heck of a time prying him off so just held him on my hand till I put him on the shelf with Aurora. He gave a protest at being dislodged but climbed right on her. After she checked him out she settled in the closet with him but later moved to the cage hammock.

This being the next night since then she has settled back into the closet.

He had already drained the one nipple so quickly moved on the the one farther away from view.
