You woke me for a picture
and then you said hello
now I'm never...
letting go
So sleepy

 I slept my princess hammock yesterday because I didn't want to share the washer with Aurora. I figured she'd go back to her box today but she's still in the washer. I shared for a bit but then went back to my closet nest instead.

Hello there

Uh, excuse you! We're trying to sleep here.

Mom decided to try giving us more room by removing the agitator. I'm fine with it but Aurora may not want more room. She's in her box. We'll give it a few days and see.
Got treat?

Aurora decided the washer is okay without the agitator but some how she still takes up all the room so I'm in the closet nest.

Lately I had lost the pep in my step and mom was starting to worry but then she thought the change coincided with the removal of the washer's agitator so she put it back yesterday morning and I got to sleep in a washer with an agitator again. This had me in much better spirits last night.

Long ago when I had the love of my life Stewie. He started the washer thing. Mom had to keep finding him for me. After he died I started sleeping in there too. I'm an old lady. The extra room was nice but I didn't like my safe place being changed.

All is well again. As you can see I am sleeping with a grip on the agitator to assure me it's really back. My tail is around Aurora's blanket covered head.

Looks like the lowest temperature in the forecast is going to be Tuesday. Perfect. That's when Pua and Aurora go in for their annual check ups and blood draws ~ Pua's mommy

Got up. Had some snacks. Clawed the log. But I'm still sleepy so having some window time listening to the neighbors.

In hindsight should have removed that poop right away but in past baths it hadn't hurt to wait and clean it up after.
Should have stuck with sponge baths in bed for her, which she may need after this, but I thought she looked especially dirty so foolishly thought a real bath was going to get the job done better.

OM Gosh. Aurora is snoring in her box.

Just stumbled across a site that claims this is the worlds best photo of a lovely tamandua. I think it was computer generated but I'll accept the title anyway.

I misplaced my toy, it's in the washer somewhere, so I am hugging my foot while I sleep instead.

I don't mean to be a party pooper guys but the cat tree is not for pooping on. ~ Pua's mommy.

Our exams are done. My blood was darker than Aurora's but we'll get the results tomorrow, most likely. Mom and Grampa had to carry the crate together. The reason became obvious once Aurora was weighed 20.6 pounds! That must be the result of eating solid food instead of soup. Mom will have to ruminate on weight loss options.

My weight is holding steady actually up a bit from last visit but have been staying in the range of 14-15 pounds for awhile. I was 14.8 this time.

Aurora's heart rate was 130 but it has been 130 every vet visit. She obviously hates the vet. Which she expressed with lots of hissing and growling "like a wolverine" in the vet tech's words.

Me, I was quiet and subdued but my heart rate was 180! I guess holding your feelings in can do that but mom will probably check me tonight and ensure it's okay under normal circumstances just to be sure.

Mom's note: Someone did pee the blanket on the drive down but I finally was prepared for this and brought a spare. The first was actually an old pocket hammock. I folded it on top of the crate when I changed them. Aurora was trying to get into the hammock bag in between poking and prodding.

Mom checked my heart rate: 80. So it was just upset at the vet. She brought me some ants but I just want to sleep, and am maybe mad at her too. So mom just left them by me. It was like Aurora knew somehow though. She came from her box to come eat my ants then join me in the closet nest.

Had snuggles and some play with mom in the little hammock. We're good gain.

Poop on the cat tree again. Is this payback for the vet visit?

Ants in bed. Yum yum.

Got up. Peed. Had my snack. Then had cuddle time with mom in the little hammock, for a half hour.

Mom put some warm water in the sink to see if I might bath in it. It made for a refreshing wake up drink

Aurora was scratching herself in her box. Beaker dog got excited since he thought someone was knocking.

We had a lot of fun playing around under the bed last night but I had some cuddle and play time with mom first.
