Hey, we're trying to sleep

Mar 27th
Cinco was down playing on the platform so I snatched him. Sat with him on the bed just a little bit and he climbed all over me. He didn't want to get off but did sniff Quasi a couple times. He gave a little nervous clicking but I clicked back at him and he quieted down.
Pua clicked at me when young and when ill, not now but she still likes me to click at her sometimes. It's a real quiet thing like clicking with your mouth closed. Had a little trouble getting him to climb back onto the platform. He crawled all over my back instead.

Pua had clawed it open before they moved to the hammock, which is why there are tomato remnants as well.

Seems crinkly bags are universally scary among tamanduas. Should'a seen Cinco go running back to mommy. Oops was just giving bunny some greens.

"Aurora busted her circus hammock with her big fat butt so stole my princess hammock again. One of my servants stitched the hang loops back on good so should hold her now." ~ Pua

Before Aurora moved to the princess hammock she started tamandua kindergarten. She let Cinco off on the window shelf, went to the little shelf turned and encouraged him to come across on his own. Pulling on the hammock wasn't working and he finally tried climbing down into it but it was a bit too deep and he fell in head first. The hammock tried to flip him but he managed to hang on and slowly climb up to the little shelf. I had moved in to help but Aurora turned and let me know she wanted him to do it himself. He made it and she sniffed him over to be sure he was okay then she went back onto the window shelf turned to face him and encouraged him again.

Cinco after pulling the hammock and realizing he would likely have the same thing happen went into the hammock instead. Aurora ate and left back to the closet nest. The equivalent of tossing your kid into the pool to teach him to swim. Guess she figured if he got hungry enough he'd find his way back.

I took pity on him and got him down. He climbed up on my shoulders and head. I tried to get him off at the dresser so I could pick him up to put in the nest but every time I turned him to the dresser he'd dart around to the other side of me to face the closet. So I had to peel him off instead to give him back.

The princess hammock has held up well but a back hook pulled out of the ceiling as Cinco was playing around and the back corner of the hammock fell. I climbed up to fix it and Cinco came to see Well Mama gave a loud chirp at him to come back. Once I left she fled with him to the sink.

When ever Cinco get near Aurora's bowl while she's eating she shoves him back with her claw. "Out'a the way, boy, I'm eating"


Aurora is eating a bit less now that she has added back on her weight after birth and is no longer thin like before birth. Funny most animal mommies loose weight while nursing.

Baby Cinco in trouble again

Aurora stopped to look in the hole, after she pulled out and turned away then he looked in and then went in and then she left. Poor Aurora is under the impression that she is a primate and can pick her baby up with her hands. Unfortunately for her that's not true.

"Aurora's a big fat bully! She stole my wash-machine. That's my bedroom! I was minding my own business and she came up behind me and played with my log then went in the washer. She left the lid open and I was mad so I smacked her but she smacked me back and we got in a fight and I fell off the sink. I hung on upside down and got back up but she stayed in my washer.I sought mom for reassurance and I had some ants. Mom tried closing the lid on Aurora but after growling initially she decided she liked it. So mom opened it and took me to snuggle and play in her bed till Aurora got bored and left.

You may be wondering where Cinco was in all of this. She left him in my princess hammock. She's trying to take over everything." ~ Pua
