Getting Better

Well, we've all been down with one ailment or another lately. I was sick with a cold just before Christmas, then Lance came down with a worse cold right around Christmas and is still fighting it. I then developed an ear infection that left me quite irritable. And if that wasn’t enough, our dear Bear was injured a week or so ago. We're not sure if he was in a fight with another cat, or if he just hurt his paw somehow, but something definitely happened. His paw was bleeding a bit that first night, but he wouldn’t let us look at it. After a full day of sleep, he was up and about, in good spirits, but walking and running (and jumping) with only three legs. We started calling him Hop Along. He’s finally putting weight on that paw, but we are still keeping a close eye on it. He’s cleaned the paw so much that he “cleaned” the fur right off of it.

Here are a couple of pictures of him. He, like most cats, loves sleeping in paper bags. This is the first time that he fell asleep with his head outside of the bag, though.

Tonight he decided that he was going to sleep in a shoebox where I keep fabric for a project that I am working on. He tends to forget that he is not a kitten anymore…

Fortunately, we all seem to be on the mend.
