Okay a couple months behind isn't bad compared to last year right? If you follow me elsewhere you know why already. If not then you are about to find out.

After flashing the camera around under the bed to find my glasses I discovered Aurora plugs her entrance hole to her box with her blanket. Now no one can disturb her.

March 12 · Aurora: I thought the time was supposed to jump forward an hour? But I got up and the human was still up! Back in my box till lights out.

March 21 · Thanks for the egg sandwich mom. It's yummy but maybe you could blend it next time.

Oh you were getting my supplements? Even better. Blue cheese!

Now off to the closet today.

March 26 · Aurora: I was on my way out from under the bed when the human began making a loud fuss "Ew, gross, OMG, ah" I continued on to the closet but a fuss continued to be made and the lights came back on so I returned to my box.

I mean I get it the dog(Beaker) chose that moment to up chuck on your arm. But this is my time. You're supposed to be quite.

March 27 · Aurora starts the day in the closet so I have left the washer the last couple day to be with her then when mom gets up she leaves the closet for her box but I have had some nice play and snuggle time with mom in the closet. We need a go pro to strap to her head so you can see me play.

April 2 · Lots of play and snuggled time last night. At one point mom stuck her pinky in my ear and that felt so good. Then I smelled this wonderful stuff on her finger and licked it off. I kept poking an clicking at her finger but I couldn't get more out of it. That stuff was great. Mom needs to share more of it.

April 4 · Ikigai the fennec fox has arrived. Beaker is skeptical. Aurora and I(Pua) don't care long as he doesn't get into our business but dinner was late last night.

We have a ton of photos and videos. Will soon have a blog post with them up over at:

 April 8 · He's got his own wall now:

April 8 · Yes I'm still here. The new fellow found his way across the cat walk and into the log activity center as I was entering it myself. I just gave him a sniff and went about my business. He's not Beaker so he's okay. He kind of reminds me of Jake as a kitten.

Then mom took him down and got me my blue cheese. Well he zoomed back up and came to share my blue cheese. I was surprised but was okay with it and went back to eating. But the little snot made a possessive move so I went to mom for help and she put him into his condo for the night.

April 8 · Aurora: The new little rat tried to come say "hi" to me while I was on the way to my box this morning but the servant held him back. Good but then he realized I was in the box and was digging at the bed next to the box. I was forced to leave my box to make my displeasure known. The situation was remedied by his having a time out in his condo wile the servant went off to do something then he was over it after that. I guess the service wasn't too bad today.

April 10 ·
Aurora: So rude

April 13 · Aurora and I went on a fridge raid last night but it was latched. Aurora waited on the ground to keep watch while I climbed up the desk to better try and open it. I got stuck. Mom came and pet Aurora. Once Aurora noticed she left. Some guard she turned out to be. Then mom rescued me.

We lost a bunch of subscribers when I started posting fennec videos must have been strictly anteater lovers. Oh well they are missing out as I am also making a point to post more anteater videos as well but they are both old ladies now who like to get up at Pua's Mommy's bed time so there's only so much I can do there.
Oh well not begging for subscribers but if you like both foxes and anteaters, we have the channel for you

April 22 ·
We now have instagram. Will probably be all the same content as here and Ikigai Tenko's page but all in one place.

April 23 · Pomegranate juice is yummy!

April 27 at 12:33pm · We're both in the closet nest today. Aurora cooing in her sleep. She sounds like a pigeon.

April 27 at 5:05pm · And now Aurora is practicing her ghostly moans.

April 29 at 11:53pm · Woke up hungry. Gonna eat all my snacks right now!

Though most of the video is Aurora snubbing me.

Not really ghostly moaning tonight. Maybe going for a yeti impression before the more usual snoring.

OMG what's with all the screaming?
Mom: That's just Beaker whining to go out.
Well tell him that's not right!

Pua begins to yawn.
Mom: Aw... OMG gross!!
Pua: What? Don't tell me you never spit up a little while yawning.
Mom: um, no ew.
Pua: What ever.

I got really moody last night. I had all the treats but it didn't help. So mom put on jungle sounds. I stopped crying instantly. I turned and sat listening intently for a long time. Then went to the window to sniff and listen more but no matter how many times I sniffed it still didn't smell like we were in the jungle. I guess the smell-o-vision part is broken. I napped a bit on the shelf and listened a lot and sniffed now and then out the window to make sure. A couple hours of that and I finally had a final snack and turned in.

Aurora on the other hand stayed in her box till the sounds were turned off then she darted to the closet shelf. She came out onto the window shelf and looked down at mom so mom tried turning the sounds back on but she retreated to the closet again till the sounds were off for a good while. Then she went and had some ants before turning in. I guess she only likes country music.

Actually it's possible sounds of her old home give her bad memories, who knows. I find them soothing. You decide:Best Relaxing Jungle Sounds Tropical Amazon Rainforest With Distant Thunder 3 Hours Long ! Chillout

Aurora: Nope not weighing me tonight human! Feel that? That's all muscle, MUSCLE!

I had to help Aurora finish her cocktail. It was cold and gave me the shivers but snuggles with mom helped me warm up.

I started out in the washer then half way through the day went to the closet. Then got up later in the afternoon for a major groom and enjoyed mom helping scratch my back. Finally I got up and headed back to the washer. The closet excursion was nice but it's even nicer to be home with my toy to hug.

Sometimes Aurora's snoring sounds like a phone on vibrate.

February 8 at 4:25am ·
Try to ignore me when I ask for a treat huh? Well, I just stick my nose under the covers here and rub my cold nose up and down on your bare leg like so. Yep now you're moving.

February 10 at 9:53am ·
"Why you gotta be hissing like that?" Pua to garbage truck.

February 10 at 12:16pm ·
Aurora: I was sharing the washer and the jungle blanket with Pua but she kept opening the lid so I have returned to my box.

February 13 at 12:05pm ·
Mom finally figured out that just because she likes ice cold water doesn't mean that I do and either puts it out early so it's room temp or warms it up a bit. So much better. It's just too cold out of the tap this time of year.

Fresh log last night!
It's log time

February 16 at 6:13pm ·
Aurora: Last night one of the ceiling doors on my box opened up a crack and the servant's hand came in and pet me then slipped away. Apparently she was checking on me since she hadn't heard me snoring. Not sure how to take that but I've made a few sounds today while sleeping. That should keep human hands to themselves.

Take me for a ride Aurora!
Aurora: Don't you dare.
{photo taken}
Aurora: Was that a flash? Is the human up? Nah, okay going to go eat.
Pua: Mom's up, yay, give me treats!

Pua's Mommy: The anteater's were running around so much last night that they ran into my dreams and I dreamed they were running around in circles while music played, which is pretty much what was happening except for the music.

February 24 at 10:56am ·
Midnight: Good waking mom ~Pukes onto the bed~
Mom: ew, gross
Pua: How do you think I feel? Actually I feel fine. Can we still snuggle
PS: she really was fine must have just had some phlegm in her tummy when she woke up and drank too fast.

February 25 at 12:29pm ·
Good Morning!
Tried to get a photo of Aurora peeking out but she kept ducking back in so I took one inside. Not sure how she tucks herself back in so quickly.

Just before nail trims. I took the tips off her big claws but they didn't want to yield to clippers for any decent amount. So I'll have to break out the Dremmel later and file away at them a bit at a time. Aurora sheds hers naturally so they don't get too long. I guess Pua just has tougher nails.
Speaking of Aurora since she tucked herself in upside down her head was wrapped up in the blanked so I just heard lots of sniffing from her during my intrusion.

Ps the cup she's wearing as a hat had her morning supplement laced treats in it from earlier.

Aurora: OMG the human reached into the washer and started petting my belly then my throat. I sat there stunned and sniffing at first then I realized her hand was wet! She used "leave in" shampoo on me. But then she offered cheese and she had the nerve to try and rinse me of the foam. I fled for my life to the safety of my box.
