Sometimes they like to nap in the little hammock but that leaves them blocking the path for others.

11:30AM I'm up having a groom. Thinking about having some vinegar but not sure. Where's my ketchup?

Nov 10
12:30AM
Omg I was in the pee pad house with Ori when everything started shaking and making noise. I fled for the closet. Ori stayed in the house unfazed. Mom was moving the cage. She said she had to get back there to put the hook back in the ceiling for the hammock. I'm not so sure it was worth it. Aurora was on the tower and eventually hid behind the washer. It was scary stuff.

1AM W
e've gone back to normal now but that was dramatic. Ori's still in the house. Lazy kid.

Nov 11

Aurora went around the yard a bit then came in. I just sniffed at the window and deemed it cold out. We ran around the house a bit and snuck in grampa's room when he got up to go to the bathroom. Now we're playing in the closet.

I think Ori was born to be a momma. She doesn't play much but she really really loves to groom me. ~ Pua's mommy

10:30 PM Mom gave us the blue cheese container since it was about done anyway. Aurora and I are enjoying a blue cheese high in the closet and Ori is still trying to lick the last bit of flavor out.

9:30AM I slept in the closet with Aurora and Ori. Mom brought breakfast and Aurora left. So I drank it and now Ori left. I'm all alone now and not in my cozy washer. Not sure what to do with myself yet.

10:00AM
Drinking more soup. It's not as filling as my non-liquid food.

10:30
I've decided to stay sleeping in the closet all by my little lonesome self.
So mom is taking this opportunity to wash my hammock.

Now 15
10:49PM
Aurora had a run in the yard. Ori and I are having ketchup on the tower and Aurora is having blue cheese.

We all ran around the house then I went outside then we all ran around the house more.

Actually I think it tends to go left due to the kink in her tail.

11:12PM Aurora is now randomly moody. She has her period though so she's entitled.

I spent lots of time cuddling with mom. Now joining Aurora in the closet and cleaning her ears.


11:21 Awe got Aurora to play some but now she's grumpy again... and now playing again. Moody girl but I'm working to cheer her up.

Her right claw is trying to shed finally but not doing a very good job of it. You can see the line where some layers have peeled but it just wont crack off all the way.

11AM Apparently there were carpenter ants in Pua's log last night. I found one survivor on it this morning during clean up. No wonder she enjoyed it so much and is now snoring away in the washer.

Did get almost all stains out of the pee pad house this time.


10:47PM Napping in my hammock. Aurora and Ori are playing in the closet. I'll join them later.

Nov 7
5AM
I was getting Aurora food and she got her claw stuck in the wall. I unhooked her claw and she rewarded my rescue by walking over in front of my face and sniffing me. ~ Pua's Mommy

11:51Pm
My big claw finally shed. It's all wicked sharp now.

She was undecided if she really wanted to come down or not.

Aurora went out for a bit then came in then back out. She then realized it really is colder outside so came in for real.

My favorite toy attacked me. My claw got stuck in it. I was pretty depressed abut it but mom got it off and gave me ketchup. Ketchup made it all better. I'm having some breakfast now.
