Mom wanted to be nice. She knows Aurora gets scared of the running faucet so she filled my drink cup from another vessel. The water still made some noise and Aurora got scared anyway. Love ya Aurora but you got some serious issues, girl.

She got the black mattress. It's pee proof.

One Pua's walk she went tripod a few times. Maybe it was the gravel path that we were on but she has always run a little funny in back so I took her to the vet for an X-ray. She tends to curl her tail tip more than she used to so wanted to rule out spinal issues(common in the species if diet is wrong)

Vet gave Pua a clean bill of health. No calcium deposits in her spine.
Pua Tamandua Xray

Pua: "
Vet says my spine looks lovely. To get a hip xray would mean somehow getting me to lay on my back still for a few seconds, yeah in your wildest dreams. Didn't xray my tail but that would have been easy. Side view took mom, vet and a tech to hold me and it only happened because I took a breather and stopped squirming for a second. So I'll be trying a joint supplement for my hip and no need to cut back on cheese treats or anything drastic."

I watched her in slow motion video running from behind and what she does is her left back leg takes long smooth stride and her right take short quick ones and bounces her way up. The joint supplement does seem to help.

Pua was clawing at the crate on the ride there and shed her claws

I'm up for some breakfast. Aurora is sleeping in the closet. All these morning sounds are a bit creepy though.
