So it's been a bit since I updated here. Most of the news is how Pua and Aurora are getting along or trying too but this just in via FB and Twitter: "Chasing Tail Aurora is a rescue/rehome. We know she was part of a captive breeding group, but not a "pet." She is indeed pregnant. The balance of her "past" is still a mystery. Exactly how far along she is we do not know, but she is due soon." So you all know just about as much as I do now.
Okay so Thursday was laundry day so Pua was sleeping in the hammock when Aurora got let out.
Aurora tried to climb in with her to snuggle but Pua said no way and chased her out so she just stayed close.
She tried laying under the hammock but Pua noticed her sniffing the hammock so chased her off again.
Later Pua got up and went back to the washer since laundry was done. Aurora took to sleeping on the washer to try and be close to Pua.

Pua was telling Aurora off for disturbing her sleep but when Pua got up later she ignored A and just got her treat and play. Aurora settled into the princess hammock and then was defending that and hissing at us for making noise but Pua would just dart past her to get from one side of castle to the other.

You can see the extra skin in back where she stretched for a past baby. Pua's is just a tiny bump in comparison.
Aurora sleeping on the washer, to be close to Pua inside, after her meal, which she is wearing.
Aurora digs into real food
I don't think she ate any but she had fun
Aurora tries real food
She only takes a couple nibbles before settling in for a nap, then hears someone in the kitchen.
Later she was too tired and had to have time out in the cage because she was cranky and jumpy, so Aurora spent half the night sleeping in one of the den boxes before moving to the hammock, but she got more time out Saturday. She spent some time trying to make friends with the other species.
This thing is weird
Aurora tried to befriend Kat. She sniffed her all over, face and belly, then tried to lift her tail to sniff. Kat did not like. I took Aurora way. She came back and tried to groom Kat but when grooming involved claw Kat did not like. Kat expressed her displeasure with a firm mew.
Aurora figured out how to open the washer though she still struggles with it. She climbed in with Pua first time and was chased back out. Aurora keeps trying then naps on the washer after giving up. I tried letting them work it out but eventually put Aurora away so Pua could come out and eat and have a break. It might go better if they are up at the same time. Aurora gets up a lot earlier than Pua. Pua did just ignore her when she was up early on laundry day and Aurora was on the washer lid then later in the hammock.
