It’s been awhile since I have written something. How pawful of me. It is difficult when the house is no longer open, I have no visitors to entertain myself with. But this is a sacrifice I make each year for the greater good. I sometimes think what’s the point of grooming when no one will see it? Then again I think of my coat being dirty and it sends shivers down my spine. I miss the sun, the warmth on my face as I sleep, now the out doors is cold, cold and damp. My paws don’t find this satisfactory, not at all. How would a human feel to go out in their bare feet? No, I will stay indoors for most of the day now, until winter turns to spring. My family can enjoy my presence.
