Aurora: Was walking across the floor to the closet nest for a wake up nap an maybe a cocktail when the human decide to try and weigh me. I ran soon as she made a move for me. I mean how rude can you get? You never ask a lady her weight!

I like ants and coconut again.

I was following Aurora last night and we were both climbing up the window shelf when she dropped down from the branch and hung by her tail to attack me. Then she kept poking at me as I climbed and then poked at my tail lifting up after me. Aurora is a ninja.

Aurora woke mom around 3 am to get her soup. Mom didn't see me about so became concerned that I was still sleeping in the washer since I never woke her myself. She got some water and came to check on me but no one in the washer. So she turns on the light and climbs to look in the closet nest, nope no me there.

She goes back to the washer and pulls the blanket out to double check, no me. She starts to panic. She checks the outhouse, the stellar hammock we pee in, under the bed, the closet floor in case I fell to my doom. She even looked in the fridge cuz you never know. She rechecks everything.

Her hand is on the door looking the room over one more time before going out to look for me and she goes to open the cage topper, nope no me laying prone on the claw logs. But see see's some poop in my poop spot. She relaxes some. If I pooped during the night I have to be there somewhere.

She turns around and sees my nose peeking out the princess hammock and an ear cocked in her direction. Yes I did hear you calling my name frantically but I was comfy. No I don't need any water but I could do with some treats.

Seriously she complains about my waking her but look what happens when I don't!

Once I was awake it was a busy night. I played with Aurora in the closet, then the princess hammock. Later I woke mom a few times for treats. Then I was playing with Aurora and I slowly lead her down the cat tree to mom. I reached down to play with mom and Aurora cam down and grabbed my sides so I poked at mom's leg and she made a noise and Aurora went down under the bed.

I kept playing with mom till I heard Aurora moving under the bed then I sat there disappointed. I wanted us all three to play together. Why wont Aurora play with mom. Playing with both of us together is how mom got me and Stewie to warm up to each other. I thought that would work.

Mom went to get me a treat and made a scary sound while doing it. Aurora had been digging in the toys in the closet waiting for me but that sent her flying up the closet shelves.

I've been up since 11pm! I've been playing with mom on and off. Aurora finally got up and came to us as I was playing with mom. She let mom touch her snout. So I pounced on her to try and get her in the game and she cried because she thought mom was there to bring her cocktail. You're such a party pooper Aurora.

Had my wake up nap in the safety hammock then snuggled and played with mom in it.
Little hammock time

Welcome to the slumber party.
 Welcome to the slumber party. Have a seat. I assume you brought snacks.

Mom was cleaning up the clawed up wood and was a bit shocked to see some big wormy thing making a get away. Then she saw it was a big caterpillar. She brought it to me. It was delicious.

Pua in jail
I'm in prison! Just kidding I was asking for treats in my new treat room. Mom says I wouldn't have to ask so often if I got more in me instead of spreading it around, but that's half the fun.

Enrichment Fail
Pua: Merry Christmas!
Mom: No it's for Valentine's day
Pua: Oh, but they're covered in snow and coal
Mom: It's coconut, blue cheese and ants.
Pua: Well, this was a stupid idea. You can't actually expect me to work for my treats. Goodbye. I'll see you when you put my treats back in cups like you're supposed to.

I was nice and went in the outhouse to pee instead of peeing in the stellar hammock, so what if only my front half made it in?

In similar news Aurora insists on a clean blanket every night now, even if she hasn't peed on it. She'll pace till she gets it, even if I'm in the washer already on account of the blanket being okay.

Aurora: I woke and left the washer at 1pm and had some soup on the shelf then napped in the closet awhile before going back to the washer. I tater went back to the closet around 2 and stayed there. I just got up early to have a cocktail.

Aurora: I am now sleeping in the stuffed toy box in the bottom of the closet.

I was a bit lazy and slept in till 6 am so I had to have all my treats quickly then have a late morning snack of soup. Now I'm just relaxing for my normal days rest.
Relaxed sleeping
Yawn

So Aurora has been here 5 years. My how time flies. She was desperate to make friends at the time so had been grooming the elder Kat here but she got a little rough and mom had to correct her and here is Aurora talking back. Humans were the one animal she didn't try to make friends with and still hasn't. Which is highly unusual for tamanduas so we suspect she was not handled well.

Giant puddle of pee on the drier this morning. It's the washer's fault for making noise at night. Also I'm displeased at mom's moving her bed.

Fridge raid last night. It may or may not have been Aurora or even a team effort but there was a mess made and that's the important thing.

Staff note: Dear Aurora. Please stick to pooping in the closet. It was not fun to step on a bomb on the step ladder at 4 am when bringing you some fresh soup. Thank you.

Up having a groom. I expect a treat after.

More grooming and having some late morning food at my dinning area. Nah I'll sleep in my princess hammock instead.

Aurora is gassy today so after sticking her nose out of the washer a few times she gave up and joined me in the closet nest.

Aurora is going into heat so is a bit moody she was hissy crying even as we were playing last night. We dueled on my dinning patio and then climbed the tower and played there and in the princess hammock but then she ran off again so I followed her as she paced around. Got some exercise.

She decided to go for a stroll this morning and went out the front door got five feet and promptly came back in. It's cold and wet out there today.
We are now spooning in the closet.

 PS I added some art of my own to the wall using my supplements, isn't it lovely.

PPS mom painted that closet a month ago. Do they make claw resistant paint?

Hyzzie got Pancreatitis right after Pua only it somehow made her forget how to drink so she spent a day in hospital on IV fluids. She remembered how to drink after much reminding and a b-12 shot.

Anyway when she came home he stuck to her like glue for a long time and looked after her.          


You sleep. I'll keep watch for you.

Got this end table on sale for $10. I wanted a sand box I could see the fennec dig in. I decided it being a bit tinted would be okay for the price. I promptly removed the legs so only the front remained. I will build a box onto it with an entrance hole in the back.
