I can report that I feel healthy and well again. The ice and snow have disappeared - wonder where it went? My home environment has changed as the bipeds have removed the gates in the hall and another room. I can now go anywhere - if the doors are open..........great! Last week the bipeds got out tins with paint in them and spread it all over the walls in the hall. They didn't want me to help so I stayed in another part of the house. When they had finished the gates had disappeared and I had a rest in the area where they had been working.
I think I am now able to 'wait' and 'stay' better so I don't need to be gated in. It's great to be 'grown up'.........I feel much calmer and 'in control'...............most of the time!
