What Causes An Inside Cheesewhiz?

All summer long, Cheoah has refused to come inside during the day, preferring to nap on the deck. So what caused the sudden shift to Inside Cheesewhiz?

This inside Cheesewhiz could sleep if the camera would stop clicking.

The boys love to come into Hu-Dad’s study and hang out while he does his busyness. But Cheoah has long preferred to stay outside, resting on her deck or in her basement (under the picnic table), to enjoy the summer breezes.

So why the sudden retreat inside? The desire to hang out on the couch? Would it have something to do with the low of 22ºF (-6ºC) we saw Sunday morning? The comfort of the couch? Or, maybe, she was happy with what Hu-Dad built for the first time this winter?

Ah, the first fire in the fireplace of the winter.

    I would be cuddled up right there with you Cheese! My 2 fluffy bottoms might be a bit jealous. We’ve been without power for 3 days. I could use an extra Husky! The fireplace and the comfy couch seem like the perfect spot for you from now until spring!

    You definitely have the right idea CheeseWhiz… nothing like a warm crackling fire in the fireplace and a comfortable couch!

    Yeah 22 degrees is definitely too cold! I’m with Cheesewhiz, that fire looks very inviting and warm!
