Thanks to all of you who were concerned about my BFF (best feline friend). Shadow is slowly getting a bit better. We still don't know what has caused all the sneezing. It could be allergies or a virus. Luckily, it has not progressed and there has been no temperature or sign of a fever. I have noticed that Shadow has been sleeping more than usual as well as enjoying the warmth of the woodburning stove in the evenings. Can't say as I blame him for that. Now that the temperatures are in the 20s F at night, those of us who are chronologically challenged here at Oleo Acres are moving a wee bit slower than we do in the summer.
All things considered, I think I'll take moving slower over hot summer anyday. Move over, cats...that wood fire does feel might good.
