Cinco's Adventure

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category: , , , , , , , , ,

Cinco was too active and keeping Aurora awake so she tried taking him for a ride to make him sleepy. That didn't work. Instead he kept climbing off and running away from her to explore. She had to chase him down and kept trying to hold him still so she could sleep.

Cinco chased him around and up the hall wanting on his butt, ha. I had to pick him up to rescue Quasi. Aurora had given up on chasing him down, at least for awhile.

He liked that best and sat there while I changed batteries in the camera.

Aurora had given up on chasing him around and stayed sitting on the cat house awhile.

Mom's trick

Baby Cinco eats some real food

He drank a bunch of water and was clawing around mom's bowl but he has no interest in her soup. So I gave him some beef food that has soaked in vinegar and ready to be blended. He liked that. Looks like he'll be on solid foods before his mom is.

"I was on the platform having my cheese treat when Aurora came by. Well I told her she couldn't come up cause I was eating so she waited in the basket. Then Cinco came up.
I lifted my claw at him a couple times but didn't want to stop eating my cheese. Cheese is so important. Then he stuck in nose in the cup and started sharing. At first I didn't do anything. Kind of reminded me how Stewie was always trying to share my treats but then I realized this isn't Stewie and he was stealing my cheese so I gave him a light smack and he backed down to him mom. Someone has to teach him some manners and I can't trust his mom to do it, she doesn't have any." ~ Pua

Aurora had another restless day and kept changing sleeping spots. She tried the cage hammock even.

She headed into the closet to have some cheese. Aurora came out of the nest and got in her face, sniffing to see what was going on then growled her into leaving. Pua camped out on the window shelf till she figured Aurora was back to sleep. she got her cheese and sat on the wall a long time before sneaking past Aurora to come down the closet shelves.

Cinco vs the cage round 2

Aurora went in the cage hammock to try and nap but Cinco was to active and she went to eat. Cinco couldn't figure out how to get out so she came back in and that's where the video starts. Aurora still wishes she had hands to grab the boy with.


Later she came to take the princess hammock but Pua was already in it for laundry day. Aurora thought she'd give climbing in the hammock with Pua a try. Pua said no and fought her off. Pua managed to hold her ground and Aurora had to settle for the basket this time.

Cinco was used to having the hammock so came up and tried to get in. Pua growled and thrashed about inside and Cinco climbed around the outside for awhile before he gave up and went back to the basket. H came up a second time and Pua hung out of the hammock and shoved him back down into the basket.

Eventually Aurora took a spin around the house then came up the pole. She stood on top of the pole one foot on it and one on the hammock and managed to chase Pua out.

Yesterday she took Cinco out again. Again he didn't want to set still. She tried holding and pulling him by his tail but he'd slip free. She'd chase him down and grab his hips but he kept squirming free. She got really frustrated and tried standing on him feet and hands. Kinda looked like she was trying to ride him for a change. This held him still for s short while but wasn't very nice. She gave up and followed him around and tried to nap where he was.

Eventually she napped in the back of the back closet when he didn't seem to be straying as far. I wound up with him. I was on the floor and he kept climbing onto my shoulders and then my head. I guess she liked my "fur" and was cleaning my ears. We did this for awhile then I gave him back and I think he nursed and they both napped for a bit before she returned with him to my room.
