She is now out in the backyard under the shade tree where her daughter, Aphrodite, can look out on her from the window seat. As for Aphrodite, she is faring as well as can be expected. As Momma was always with her, she was fearless, romping all over their habitat. But for now, she is spending a lot of time inside her newly empty house, watchful. But she is eating and drinking, and I have hopes for her boisterous noisy self to return as soon as she processes through the loss of her mother. However, as she is going to the vet tomorrow to be checked for the …
