As colder weather arrives, our younger members head outside for games, playing in the brisk breezes. The older members of The Herd, however, opt for the indoor warmth. Someone is playing the senior card for the first time this winter.
Cheoah joined the Herd a little over eight years ago and was somewhere between one and three years old at the time. She still has no problem handling her brothers, but she has increased her indoor time so far this winter. She is quite reluctant to leave her warm spot on the bed in the morning, as the picture above indicates.
Our house is heated via a radiant system – warm water pipes under the floors. That toasty warm floor is hard to resist and, apparently, quite enjoyable.
A quick medical update. We have vet appointments for two members this morning.
Cheoah has long dealt with a number of skin growths. Previous tests have shown them to be fine, but she has opened up one on her leg (she blames brothers). She will be having a few places removed this morning and tested again.
We had mentioned yesterday that Qannik is suffering from some digestive issues. He has responded to treatments and is eating and drinking, but we are concerned enough to go back in for further tests this morning. (UPDATE – 3 a.m. Qannik had a bowel movement for the first time in a couple of days. We apologize for Hu-Dad’s silly, middle of the night, happy dance inside Sibe Quentin.)
Thanks in advance for everyone’s good thoughts.
