More Cinco and Aurora

April 11
There was the loud clanging of a metal bowl falling to the floor and I thought Aurora found a new way to ask for food but when I looked up I saw Cinco on "attacking" while she lay back, elbow in the food bowl playfighting back. Nice to see her having some fun. (It was the water bowl that fell.)

Paparazzi invaded but I got to run around till 4am so it wasn't that bad.

I told her this wasn't a good idea. Cinco got squished between her and the ceiling when she went between the rod and the ceiling. Then she couldn't get down so I lifted the basket up for her to get into.

Cinco plunged off the shelf when Aurora went to the window shelf. He bounced off the cat house and into the dirt box. He was fine and only cried out when I picked him up and hit the resistance of his tail holding the cat box rim. Aurora was grateful for his return as she wasn't sure what to do.

"Cinco fell again onto the clothes hanging and mom helped boost him back across to Aurora. He fell once off the wall and was hanging from the closet door frame and mom helped him back up.
Then they were at my hammock for awhile then went down into the basket. I was playing with mom on the platform and Cinco came up onto it and sniffed my leg. I checked him out and played with mom and checked him out and mom kept telling me to be nice so I finally pounced on him with my front claws. Cinco hissed and mom chewed me out for attacking him and he retreated to the hammock. I left in a huff. Seriously everyone over reacted I just wanted to play with him too. Mom apologized but said even if I was playing I need to take it slower since he's just a baby. Well, he needs to hurry and be a man already 'cuz I'm feeling all hormonal.

So Aurora and Cinco went back to the closet but she was coming out for food and mom was giving it to her on the floor. Cinco got off and went back to the closet then cried out "Mommy, come help!" Once he was under the stool in the closet. Aurora charged over to the closet ready to fight the big bad.. eh, stool? Like what's the problem again? Cinco climbed back onto her butt and she took him back to the nest. Then she came out to eat a second time and this time Cinco was puffy crying for a bit wandering around before he ran for the closet crying out as he went. Aurora again charged over but again the only problem was he wanted to be back in the nest. Mom does feed her on the shelf but Aurora is to impatient to wait for her to bring it sometimes so comes out.

Aurora frozen, Pua eating and Cinco takes off.

Hey come back here!
Hey come back here!
She tried grabbing his tail in both claws and pulling but then realized she didn't want him to fall so let him go.

I remember this from when I was little. It still tastes the same

Pua Tamandua takes a vinegar bath

Pua splashed some and was rubbing it in so I helped her out with more. She does this from time to time. In the wild they would get swarmed with ants spitting acid on them when feeding. some species of birds are known to sit on ant nests or rub ants into their feathers. Must feel good. Pua took a short nap after.
