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

Sleeping late. It may be warm but I can still feel fall coming.


When I went to my hammock tonight Ori was there to act as my step stool to get in. So kind of her.


I let Ori have my ketchup. I'd rather clean her ears.


Now that's just wrong. Pua got on the brown house while Aurora was in and peed.

Aurora and I were playing like crazy this morning. Woke mom up a 4 am. Lots of fun.


Aurora and off beeping and I followed her a bit then went back to the corner. She circled the room beeping then pounced me and beeped awhile while we played then stopped.
I used to beep at momma when younger and when I was ill but I was quieter and when we snuggled to say I love her. Maybe Aurora was saying she loves me.

Mom 
tried to film it. It was dark but was hoping to get the sound but she stopped soon as mom hit record.

Aurora was upset when she couldn't find me to play because I had retired to my washer. So she slept in my hammock after giving up.


Woke up and found Aurora sleeping behind my sink. Made me jump.


Sept 27th
1AM In the closet. Aurora took off, Ori followed so I followed them. They were headed for the hammock but Aurora misstepped and fell onto the cage. The noise scared me so I darted back Ori was unphased and got in the hammock. Aurora got back up and went back to the closet, hoping nobody saw. Closet playtime instead.

3PM Oops woke up in the middle of the day again. Had a scratch and some ketchup and went back to bed.

9:30PM Got up early yesterday but am sleeping in today. Got to keep people guessing.

11:43PM Aurora is a bit moody so I'm grooming her.

Pua and Aurora anteaters playing

Pua and Aurora playing in the middle of the night. They always make a mess. They knocked all that stuff down. The carry bag was neatly in the corner with the storage bag in it in case we find ants on a walk, some one tore a piece of old linoleum off the step, the dress shirt came down out of the pet clothes basket with someone and stuff knocked off the shelf. I will admit to the blanket being my fault though. I'll have to put the carry bag elsewhere or at least keep it zipped.
