July 9th
Mom woke up to the sound of Aurora making soft beepy sounds. Maybe she was lonely and calling me, so I move to the closet to sleep. So what does Aurora do? She's sleeping on top of the hut. I just don't get her.

12:50PM : The phone ringing disturbed her so Aurora moved to the blue closet shelf, still not in the nest with me.

1:11PM : I got up and demanded a snack and after that Aurora moved back to sleeping on to hut roof.

Aurora is sleeping on the hut again. I walked around and begged a lot and tried climbing on mom's head and pulling her hair while she was working. I just finally quit and went in the washer. Mom says I need a man. Nah, I just want to climb on your head and pig out, what's wrong with that?

1AM : Playing with Aurora in the hammock!

11:49AM : I enjoyed playing with Aurora last night so much I slept in the closet but Aurora still slept on top of her hut instead. Mom went to give her a treat and got growled at, she must have known mom had her mite treatment in the other hand. Mom will just get her tonight. She's back out of reach and it's not worth the drama. She did eat her treat though.

Played with Aurora in the hut, hammock and the nest last night and I followed her down onto the cat tree and tried to ride her some. She still chose to sleep on her hut while I am in the closet nest today.

5:16PM : Aurora just sneezed then she hissed, how dare her nose do that to her!

12AM : Aurora got up, groomed, checked out the log, then went into the hut. After a short rest she came to the closet and demanded cheese. I was all sprawled out but came to share.

12:40AM : Playing with Aurora in the closet. Mom peeked and I was on my back poking her hand. Aurora quits when she sees mom looking though.

2AM : Felt lonely when Aurora decided to eat so spent some time playing with mom in the drawer.

11AM : My persistence paid off. Aurora is sleeping with me in the closet nest.

Aurora pooped on her feeding station last night. I guess she was unimpressed with the soup.

Oh and her belly was big from needing to poop. She only poops once a week (average for normal anteaters is every other day). She may have a bit for a hormonal imbalance.

Woke and played with Aurora. Had a treat. Was coming down but heard something. I think I'll stick in the closet awhile longer.

I slept in the washer so mom took me for a walk. I had fun but turned back early. I then went to the closet to sleep with Aurora instead.

July 19th
I'm in my washer after having breakfast. Aurora was sleeping on the blue shelf so mom changed the closet nest blanket. This disturbance was not acceptable to Aurora. Then some neighbor weed whacking was just too much and she went to the hut.

Just noticed Aurora pushed the hut forward and is sleeping behind it.

playing with Aurora in the hut

Aurora pooped on the cat tower last night. I am in the washer but was up for a snack briefly.

July 21st
So I went to get in my hammock last night and a corner pulled out of the ceiling. I climbed inside anyway. Mom came to the rescue and lifted it back onto the hook with me in it. I rewarded her with hugs and play, mostly hugging her arm and a few pinches.

I moved to my washer this morning, came out for treats, went to the closet to beg for more treats then returned to my washer.

Aurora is behind her hut again.
