Chasing Tail - May 9 Seriously Ori! We've only been in the car 10 minutes. Guess we should have taken a walk in the park before hitting the road.

She had pigged out that morning before leaving

The less flattering angle
Ori: "OMG! they wake up at something call O'dark thirty at this Summer Camp"

Chasing Tail Ori napped in the tub-bed yesterday, so I thought she would claim it, but this morning I found her crashed hard asleep up on the high shelf, I presume because it was where she could look out and see the other animals down the line and across the way

Pua Tamandua Maybe felt more at home. She sleeps on the high closet shelf with her mom here.


Ori: "Look everybody! They have 'Easy Cheese' at Summer Camp."

The way to Ori's heart

Chasing Tail Ta'Ma is a sucker for Sharp Cheddar flavor, so they will be in grand company together in a few days. (BTW, I did not know about Easy Cheese until Pua Tamandua mentioned it one day ;-)

OK, a full day one, and Ori is an absolute doll compared to the ever infamous ElDorado (*LOL*)

Ori cleaned her bowl last night. Doors have been opened for sniffing to outside and the neighbor girl but not ungated till tomorrow then they can meet.

Letter Home, from Ori. Summer Camp is nice :-) I made a new friend today, her name is Ta'Ma, her 8 week old baby girl died a couple weeks ago so the humans here are hoping I can keep her company while she is on R&R. They said she and I will be meeting an "M-A-N" in a few weeks. What's an m-a-n? Well, I really like Ta'Ma, she is snuggly and cleans my ears :-) Only complaint, last night they forgot to give me all of my food. I means, what's with that? At least I got a line of Easy Cheese from this small human named Tessa. They call her a "kid" and said I will be meeting some more like her. I like short humans with Easy Cheese :-)

No avocado? I'm going back to bed in protest.

Mom spent the last several hours cutting up heart and making anteater food, then cleaning. Grandma was laughing cuz it looked like a cow exploded in there.

I went out and rubbed my chest on the big oak tree then I climbed the lilac bush and rubbed my chest all over. If there's any men around. I think they'll find me.

Been up and down many times today but mom said it was laundry day so she couldn't take me in the woods. She will pay tonight. And what is with the hangers laying all over my dinning room?

The blankets kept falling through the crack so I added the raccoon under. They tossed the blanket down anyway.

Ori goes off to fat camp

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category:

Fat Ori

As you can see Ori's weight has gone way out of control. So she is being sent off to Fat Camp at Zoological Wildlife Conservation Center, Petting Zoo & Mobile Teaching Zoo.
We told her it's summer camp. She will get to meet a couple new friends. One of which will be a boy so we hope for a summer fling as well.

I personally feel she will have the best chance of loosing the most weight this way due to how my friend keeps her tamandua. There was mention of tree climbing and getting dirty too. Hopefully once it's off it wont be too hard to keep off. I think her momma could also use the break too. Ori does sometimes suckle on her nipples. I thought they stopped that at around 8 months then Ori restarted recently but if there is any milk that could certainly be part of the problem. I can't really tell for sure.

So her last photos at home for awhile

Instead of trying to take a ride she was rubbing her chest on her like she does to logs and things to scent mark. Maybe she was flirting. Pua is a tomboy.

Don't lave me!
