An April Filled with Anteaters and Chihuahuas

April 2nd
Mom can't find where she put the stash of ants. Isn't that a crime? I need my ants. Do you think she ate them all herself and is making excuses?

Mom found the ants where no ants should ever be, in the pants drawer. I wonder about her sometimes

"She wouldn't close them again till I left."

Aurora left the lid open on the washer last night so I slept in the closet and she slept int he washer but I as you could see in the earlier photo I am quite comfy here all stretched out.

April 4th
I have the washer. Aurora has the closet and a case of the munchies so it works that she is near her food bowl.

April 7th
Sleeping on top of Aurora in the closet.

April 8th
Lots of play last night. We were playing battle on the shelves till mom came and peeked so then we went and played in my hammock.

Sharing the washer with Aurora. She's tucked under the blankets.


April 11th
I had the closet to myself for a couple day now we switched and I got the washer and Aurora is in the closet.

April 12th
I was a bit moody but now that I've pooped I'm feeling better.

1:39AM
Mom left the vinegar jug near my castle and I came down the cat condo and tried to open the lid but couldn't get it. Maybe I should have poked a hole in it. Mom took it but let me have a swig.

Now, some play time with Aurora in the closet.

April 13th
Aurora and I are still sleeping in the washer. I got a new coat that is very sophisticated, perfect for a queen like me. I hope the weather stops being blah so I can get out and about with it soon. We got a new play hammock too. It's got zebras on it, and rainbows, and rainbow zebras.

April 17th
Spent some time clawing at the new log with Aurora then she went to sit on the cat tree. I left a bit after and mom got up to get Aurora some soup. Beaker started squeaking and he went on the cat tree. This did not please Aurora so she left and is having soup now. Silly doggy cat trees are for anteaters!

I got a tomato!

Treats?

Treats?

I need more yogurt
I need more

OMG! What the...
OMG! What the...
Apparently Aurora made some noise changing positions so mom decided to peek. Cut it out! It's not like I bother you when you're sleeping. oh, wait...

April 18th
Was sharing the washer with Aurora but we've been doing that for about a week now and it's getting old so after morning treats I went to the closet.

April 19th
So mom was doing yogurt and decided to set them in front of her heater to finish. This worked in the past but tonight she woke to a bloink crack. The first words out her mouth was "oh Pua!" Then "you better be okay" So judgmental! It was Aurora. Guess she got the munchies and it was starting to smell like yogurt and the pulled a jar over. Wasn't cured enough though and ran all over into a nice big mess. Was pretty brave of her though the heater is right near mom's bed.

April 20th
This morning Aurora was running back and forth across the room so I got down on the bridge and pounced down onto her and we had a massive wrestle session. No photos as mom didn't want to disrupt the play.

11:52AM
Some visitors wanted to see an anteater but Aurora was the only one in the washer, so mom went ahead and pulled her out. She was not amused but was good and only growled once when Beaker was sniffing her tail. After one pace around the room she is back in the washer.

April 23rd
According to the article "Characteristics of natural salt licks located in the Colombian Amazon foothills" Tamandua occasionally visit natural salt licks but only at night. Of course, night time is party time.

Similar to the wild salt lick behavior I was very attracted to these elk teeth mom brought home once, like a natural mineral lick I think. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tamanduagirl/2932450185/

April 26th
I've been sleeping in the closet the last few days. Aurora has been kicking back in the washer. We play in my princess hammock instead of the new play hammock. We don't like new things but I have peed in it once or twice.

Bit of a party last night we tore the small door window curtain part way down and knocked books into the sink but we didn't turn the sink on. We also got out an old VHS tape but couldn't figure out how to use it.

Oh and mom ask a neighbor about a rotten buggy stump that was pulled out of the ground but she forgot to go get it so maybe tomorrow night we'll get that.


Hey there, got any ants?

And so concludes April but here's some Chihuahuas first

Though at night she mostly uses the basket back there. The rest of that is Beaker's horded toy pile.

I called the police but later when I was trying to talk him into jumping in the car with my kids(just to check his tags and turn him in somewhere) his owner woke up and called him. Seems he lives at a trailer park nearby and lets his dog run at the park while he sleeps.
