Lots of Ori Cinco

11AM Laundry day was scheduled for tomorrow but I volunteered today. Sleeping in my hammock. I expect my bedroom to be squeaky clean tonight.


2PM Jupiter escaped last night and I just found 2 severed power cables and a headphone chord. And that is exactly why you don't get to run around unsupervised young man.

12PM Up had a snack and now having a groom.

5PM
I smelled ketchup so I got up. It's 5pm. Someone left a ketchup jar on the drier! Mom left it there for me to clean up when I got up but it woke me instead. How can I not get up smelling something so good? It was yummy though. Moved to my hammock after.

Awesome anteater tongue action

1AM
Due to being up and noon and 5 pm I only got up for a big drink earlier then went back to bed but I got up and checked behind the sink now, off to play with the others.

10:20AM Up for my midday ketchup. Having some food too.

10:30AM
Mom brushing her hairs sounds creepy. I had to stop eating till it was over.

10:40
OMG that noise nearly had me bolt into the washer. Sounded like a rattle snake. Something from the kitchen. I instead demanded cuddles from mom.

The toaster does that sometimes. It burnt the toast. Not sure on quite technically what the sound is though. ~Pua's mommy


11:20AM Went back to bed awhile ago. Will be up later tonight.

1:13PM
Up again had a big drink and some ants. I need to find that sandman and pinch him. He's slacking.

Ori always thought it a good idea to be on my head too ~ Pua mommy

‎"she stops eating and moves away from the nest- dragging her legs on the ground or grass- and that movement removes all the rest of the ants." Pua does that after being in the cold to warm herself up. I've observed before she seems to deal with cold the same way as she would ants, trying to claw it off. This is the first I've seen someone else mention the leg dragging.

1 AM Poor Aurora she misses me since I'm sleeping in but I was awake quite a bit during the day. She tried to get in the washer with me but she kept standing on the lid. She would get her front in then the rear end would weigh it down and squish her and she'd pull back out. She finally gave up. I would have welcomed her joining me though.

10:37 PM Mom was missing and no ketchup when I got up but I did get up early. I laid in the basket till she came back and I sniffed her breath, then I stuck my nose way in her mouth. So she let me have a teny tiny sip of champagne. Once a year wont hurt me. I do love the stuff. First time was kind of an accident. I didn't like anything but my food at the time. Grampa let me sniff his glass thinking I'd go on my way. I took a sip then seized the glass in my claw and started drinking. He had to summon mom to help pry me loose. Tonight mom put a little splash in the bottom of one of my own mini-glasses.

11:30
OMG the world is coming to an end! I was outside and there were a couple loud bangs then dogs started barking. I ran back inside as fast as my legs would carry me. I am now hiding in my hammock.

11:50 Okay relaxing again *yawn* but I'm not leaving my safe hammock.

She had her claws holding her nose napping but saw me with the camera.

Kicking back in the hammock, relaxing. Oh yeah this new year is starting off right.

Up at 2PM! Do I blame the sandman for this or is someone else in charge of the waking part?

It looks like an action shot but Ori was sitting like that for quite awhile not moving.

Climbing around the cat tree

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

Dec 29th

Prehensile tails are lifesavers. Ori was messing around in the cage hammock and she clawed a corner loose and plummeted. Her tail wrapped around the hammock and stopped her fall, hanging by tail only then once she gained her senses swung over to the shelf.
That kid is darn tough on hammocks.

Ori likes the new ceiling hammock. She'll get that thing in shape. Hopefully it's as strong as I tried to make it.

We were able to get the cat tree after getting a generous gift via pay pall for Pua's birthday. They all use it quit a bit late at night. No one uses the cubby holes though. I should have got one with those little hammock things, maybe. To remmedy this I tried putting a cup of cheese in the cubby hole. Ori went right to it but Aurora was a bit late to the cheese party.
