Pua and Aurora

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

My camera wasn't cooperating but.

Aurora staged a castle coup the 27th. She scaled the castle and attacked Pua while she was sleeping in the hammock. I think she was exploring and got startled by Pua being there. Cinco kept getting smooshed between her butt and the wall. Eventually Pua found an escape route and went to play with her log and eat but Aurora kept hissing and growling at her.

Pua went to sniff the window and hide out on the desk, came to snuggle with me for support but decided I was not a comfy bed.

Aurora kept up the ruckus and attacked the food bowl when offered. I was also worried if left there all night Cinco might eventually fall off the platform as he is a lot more active, though at the time he looked very sleepy. So I wrestled her down and put her back in the closet. Where she has stayed.

I might have left them to work it out if there wasn't a baby involved. She may have been looking for a nesting area with more space but there are no barriers around the tower's edge and she was too worked up.

No injuries. The initial "fight" was through the hammock since Pua was inside. With patience and a blanket I got her down. Generally grabbing the arms works so they can't pinch you once you have hold. That wasn't working so well though so I slowly pulled her down to the next level by her tail. Then work her off each level of the shelves there. She decided to walk back to the closet herself after that. Once in the closet she couldn't remember how to climb up so I lifted her part way.

Later,
Pua's being in heat has made her friendlier. Aurora came to the ground because her food wasn't cold enough and she was looking for the good stuff. Pua came over and said hi from up on the chair and wanted to come down but A stood claws out & growled. Pua then curled up to look nonthreatening but A wasn't buying it and after telling her off some more went back up the closet to stand guard over baby. Getting a taste of her own medicine. Everyone did similar to try and befriend her before.

He tries to go explore the rest of the platform and gets shoved back which turns into play fight then some finger poking.

Pua has been chased off enough times she leaves at just hearing Aurora move. Aurora took longer than normal to come a she collected Cinco first this time. She didn't even bother growling since Pua always runs off.

Aw so cute but can't get a good angle for a photo. Gave Aurora fresh food and she came to eat Cinco peeking between her arms then he decided to eat to and rolled under her suckling while she stood there eating.

March 1st
I went to check on Cinco while mom went to poop and he played with me. Yay.

Getting to know each other. Aurora normally chases Pua off the shelf but Pua didn't get that far this time.

Pua and Aurora trying to work it out

My anteaters starting to get to know each other. It ended in a truce of them both napping for awhile.

Then in the morning Aurora tried to lay claim to the fridge. She stood atop it arms out in the "I am king kong" stance bellowing. I returned her to the closet and gave her cold food and she was happy.
