The anteater Family with love

Sept 1st
Aurora does not like the new hammock and wouldn't stay to play with me either.


Spent sometime with Aurora and Ori in the closet now followed Aurora back to the tower. I did stop to peak in the fridge but saw nothing great so closed it and moved on.


Aurora came back and decided she likes the hammock after all.


Layin on momma's knee getting a massage. I seem to be shedding.


Got my cool new hammock back.


Aurora tried to come take the hammock again but I was inside. I don't mind sharing but she left complaining that it's was too lumpy with me in it.

1:30pm Got up did some grooming and had a snack. Was in walking sleep zombie mode though and couldn't get back in the washer. Mom had to open it for me.
2:40pm
Up again. I think I got a touch of insomnia.
2:47pm
Back to bed but I was able to get in myself this time.

11:40pm
Playing with Ori in the blue house nest.

I love you Ori, you're not going anywhere

Sept 03
I slept in the closet with them till I got hungry then went back to my washer.

Decided to go join the others in the closet after Aurora made a quick pass through my area.
They kept leaving me in their nest by myself for food and such but eventually they came back to play and snuggle.

Sept 04
Stayed in the closet nest till around 3:30am then I had to go eat.


My taste tester ate a bit of freshly made anteater food complete with silkworm pupae. Guess that means it's okay. Glad he's back to normal, though I don't trust his pallet too much. He's been known to eat poop.


Sept 05
Played with mom a bit, ran outside, played and napped in the closet but finally left around 4:30 for my own bed and ate later.


Grampa stole some of my ants and tried to make coffee out of them. Something about them looking the same in the glass jars.


Sept 06
I was hyper and running around last night. Once I came back in I tried joining Ori and Aurora playing in the closet but Ori was blocking the entrance of the blue house and growled at me so I had to leave. Much later Aurora did let me join her for awhile.


Sept 07
Ori's doing calisthenics: Running across the room, climb the curtain, drop down, run back across the room, repeat....


Kinda spooky out tonight lightening and crazy barking dogs.


Things were going okay outside. I paused a lot as the lightening had my anty-senses tingling but then I heard a monster. It was growling super loud(neighbor's truck). I bolted inside as fast as my little legs could carry me.


Mom wont let me out any more 'cuz the flashes are brighter and we hear thunder now. Chicken. It's still miles away.


Sept 08
Bath, just cuz I was itchy, how rude and I heard uttered threats of a manicure soon.


Bathing Pua

Attempt number 2 to film. I had it on the little tripod but I guess the legs unbent themselves some. Still she's in frame more for this one

All three of us got to run the house for a bit but A&O joined kind of late. Went to play with them in the closet and we're all just hangin' out now.

Pua the bully

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

Aurora: Pua's a big fat bully
Pua: What?
Aurora: You forced us to play with you against our will.
Pua: It was mutual
Aurora: I was growling at you
Pua: You didn't mean it.
Aurora: That hole in your tail should have told you something
Pua: It was just a scratch. I thought it was an accident.
Aurora: I had to hide under the bed
Pua: You were scared by a noise. We sat quietly together while I comforted you.
Aurora: I was too traumatized to fight back
Pua: Well you were getting boring so I left to sniff the window till Grampa kicked us out.
Aurora: I went and hid under the office desk after that.
Pua: Whatever I lost interest in you after that. I had a playing with Ori. She even let me ride on her a few times.
Ori: Let is not the right word.
Quasi dog: Pua even pounced on me once
Pua: Lies. All lies.

So yeah the others were exploring the house and Pua loves to play in the back part of the house. I guess she thought the others understood this is the play area. So Pua played with them despite their protests.

Anteaters and ALF

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

August 25th 
I got locked up a bit early last night but was restless so mom but me on the closet wall and Aurora and Ori were in the nest. I was gonna go down the shelves but was scared o being chased. Ori came to say hi but wouldn't play. I left for the window shelf but Aurora came and asked me back

  They let me join them in the nest. I groomed Aurora all over but Ori hid behind her mom. No one would play and they were taking all the padding so eventually I went down to the shelf under them and lay but there was no padding or company there either so I left then.

So mom had to leave early this morning and fed Aurora. A was eating and mom came back in the room and A panicked for some reason and bolted for the closet but she missed the step between the two shelves and fell. She held on with one claw but still panicked she failed to regain her footing and plummeted. She fell like a star with her arms and legs spread out. She hit the first platform and tumbled off cartwheel style to the next shelf. It was spectacular. Mom started to come see if she was okay so Aurora ran into the tiny cubby box but realizing if she got her rear all the way in her front came out the other hole she turned tail and climbed up the wall where Ori was waiting for her. She was fine.


26th still.
Aurora has her period. She seems to be on a 35 day+ cycle Pua about 30+ Pua starts a few days before Aurora. Explains the fall as she does seem to get more jumpy around that time. Pua will
just lay around for a day or two then gets hyper after.


Aug 28th
Mom changed out the closet nest bedding and stuck it in the hamper. OH no you don't! I yelled at her till she stuck that stuff in the washer. I don't need their stink on my side of the room. I quieted down then but had to wait longer for the washer to get done than I would have liked.



Aurora and Ori are playing like crazy fools in the fresh closet nest.


I've been lazy tonight but Aurora had fun running in the yard. Once she explored she was really zooming. When she was done she headed back to the door.


Aug 29th
Ori was in the basket when I came back to my room. That's okay I just walked over her.



I got to groom Ori while she had a tomato but then she left.
