Hi, everyone,

I'm glad to announce that Harry is up after his big sleep.  :)

 

After a warm shower, he basked under the lamp in his bedbox for an hour or so.

It was warm and sunny so he went out on the patio for a walkabout, then took a siesta.

At four o'clock the sun went down and Harry came back in to his bedbox where he huddled down for an early night.

 

I'm so pleased that his hibernation went well, and to have him back; I sure miss him during the winter months.

Thanks, everyone, and just to follow up, I'd like to tell you that Harry had his post-hibernation big drink today, which I'm delighted about; I'm always relieved when this happens.

He had a good wee afterwards, too, which was full of urates, so now I know his system's flushed clean.

Hi Graham,

Great to hear 'Harry' made it safely through another hibernation and is up and about. :)  

It is still cold here so I've decided to leave 'Billiejo' for another week or two. Hope your keeping well?

Kind Regards

Freddy
