The Little Cloth House Saga

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

So ya'all know Ori was born on the little brown cloth house. For awhile it moved to the back where Kat could use it since they like the blue one better but with Kat gone it moved back to my room on the top of the cage. However it's been through a lot now.

Oh wait it did, Hurricane Ori.

That's Ori hugging Aurora.

The other issue you may have picked up on from recent blogs is they all pee in or on the cloth houses but everyone loves the cloth houses.

Look at her little jaw askew. Saw it and had to stop and get the photo.

Since Aurora also pees in her hammock I've toyed with the idea of using a pee pad to make a hammock but I just place one under the hammock instead. But then I said: "Ugh what is it with anteaters peeing in their houses. I'm seriously tempted to try making them new houses made of pee pads. I'd just need to find some foam. ~ Pua's mommy."

Then when we went shopping I found some foam so I did it.

Ori has pretty well destroyed the old houses and since everyone loves to pee in and on them so much I made a new one out of pee pads. I broke the sewing machine needle half way through so the green string. Also could not turn the pad inside out to sew as it was to sticky and wouldn't move in the machine. And yeah the absorbent side is up on the roof since as I said they like to get on sometimes and pee in it too.

Ori set right to work clawing at the new pee pad house(hence the caved in roof) but it made her tired.

You can see someone already peed on the roof. They like the restroom/bedroom combo.

They love the house so much they started sleeping there every day. Pua's not so fond of this new house since she'd rather play with them in the roomy closet.

I added the blanket thinking maybe she could still lay with them on it like in the closet.

We did it

Crammed all three anteaters in the house.

It wasn't comfortable though so Pua went and waited in the closet for them.

Other times she would keep going to their house then back to the closet trying to get them to join her. She now has mostly given up and will go nap in the closet waiting for them to wake up
