Aug 6th
(Pua's mommy)Took Ori for a walk at a little park. She didn't really relax till I let her climb on my head and then off again on her own. Then she was thrilled. She just needed to know her nanny was there to protect her. I kept my eyes shielded. I'm parnoid about that but her claws never got close to my face.

Unfortunately we weren't in the park yet and that was someone's yard she wanted to go in.

I finally gave in and let Ori climb on my head. She felt safe after that so had fun.

Ori Cinco Tamandua's first real walk

She's practiced in the yard now she got to go to a park. Yeah that guy is asking me not to let my "dog" poop by his fence, only person we ran into, the park has homes around it. I said she's an anteater and just poops once a day so he didn't have to worry about that. Of course he needed me to repeat that and I pick her up and I'm saying how she only poops once a day so isn't going to and poop comes falling out of her butt, lol, thanks perfect timing.(They actually poop every other day on average).

Ori came to visit by herself last night though she was just exploring and didn't really want my company or grooming. So I left her for my tower and defended it from her when she tried to come up.

Ori followed Aurora down to the closet floor then Aurora play attacked. ORi fled back up. She thought they were going to explore and didn't want to play there.

Ori came back and gave in to play for a bit but then ran off again. Aurora came by me and Ori ran over and hopped on for a ride. Aurora took it as a play attempt and went at her, lol.


Ori is such a klutz she tripped on the food bowl and sent food flying but not the bowl and got it all over her legs and belly.


Aurora and Ori are crazy hyper tonight

So cute looks like she's wearing suspenders. The flowers have glitter on them.

Pua's harness broke and the store had no H harnesses. I was a fan of the H-harness but this is very snug around the arms don't think she'll slip out easy. We'll try it out on a walk soon.

She took a pretty good walk and posed cute quite a bit but my camera battery was dead. I got stabbed in the back by a bee and she had to pose for a fan at the end of her walk. She is spoiled and doesn't like to stop outside.

Quasi and Jake got their check ups. On the ride to the vet Jake wanted to cuddle with Quasi for moral support. Quasi wasn't thrilled "Dude why are you in my face? You're gonna give me cat cooties" He was to tired to care on the ride home.

She was happy to get out.

Aurora came by last night but she ignored me and went up the tower and into the hammock. So I followed her up and into the hammock. She growled and smacked me but I stayed and she settled down but next time I moved she growled and smacked me again. I thought she'd settle again so waited but she got more fierce instead so I fled. Guess she wanted to be alone.


Aurora took Ori on a quick tour of the house but she had trouble keeping her balance under her heavy load. She'd growl at Ori when she lost her balance but she didn't physically so anything about it.


Aurora went again and Ori was going to come along but got distracted by a piece of avocado. Aurora got to explore in leisure.

I took it easy tonight but Aurora explored the house and talked mom into a couple short trips into the yard.

I let her out for a bit(Supervised of course) and she wanted to go out again. I grabbed her off right after this. She would have tried to climb on the molding and broke it.

Ori raided the fridge last night and devoured the remaining piece of avocado in there.

I had guessed Aurora as the younger one but she does treat Pua like a child on account of her being "special", you know not knowing anteater manners and hanging out with people.

I opened the fridge last night and got to eat as many tomatoes as I wanted. Mom is contemplating putting a latch on the new fridge like she had the old one.


Hey I'm at my summer weight 15 pounds. Well it was 15.5 but I figure the .5 falls into the margin of error ;)


July 30th
(Pua's mommy) Ori is a spoiled pudgy bully. Aurora wanted to eat but she would come to the bowl and lick and get in the way every time. She didn't want to eat when Aurora left. I think she knows it bugs her mom. So played with her some then took her and carried her around the room till her mom was done.
She's not scared now but occasionally hissed a complaint because she's spoiled and didn't want to be held. Over all she was good with it. She even squirmed up and licked my ear but then tried to get down, trying to sweet talk me maybe.

I'm sleeping late tonight but last night Aurora visited. She went on the tower and I tried getting in the hammock to share but she left. She came back later to sleep for a bit in the hammock. Ori was running around on her own and went behind my washer. I tried joining her but she didn't want me too.

So Ori ran away.

I was sleeping in the hammock and Aurora came to visit me. I hung out of the hammock and started playing with her. She growled but I figured it was a play growl. She moved away so I got out and followed her and tried to play some more. She finally stood up and boxed with me. She looked confused by my moves and saw the empty hammock so climbed in.
So I climbed in with her. She growled but I hugged my tail around her to cheer her up and sat ready to play if wanted. We shared for a bit but then she got out and sat on the platform moping.

So I came over and climbed on top of her and gave her a big bear hug and said I love her and declared her my new mommy. She growled but I know she was just sharing her frustrations on having a bad day. Not sure why she tried to paw me off though. I figured a ear cleaning would help cheer her up but she lowered her head so I gave up and left her to her bad mood and back into the hammock.

Mom gave her some food so I wanted a treat. Aurora leaned up and tried to share the cheese cup but couldn't so left her bowl in disgust and mom offered her a treat cup too but she was all sour grapes and said too little to late and wouldn't take it and left. She went and ate food on her shelf instead.

Pua climbed up on Aurora. Aurora tried to pull her off by grabbing her hands but Pua was insistent.

Sort of. Aurora didn't really want Pua in there with her but Pua didn't get the hint.
