O’K, don’t hurry to call the animal rights organizations or anything like that, I’ll explain everything.
Some time ago we used to live in Russia and yes, it was really cold there (and no, there were no bears on the streets, at least I saw none). The metal construction is, in fact a piece of a central heating equipment. Theoretically it’s supposed to have some other details inside but that’s an old system and by the time Usyaka found the thing it was already empty enough for her to fit inside.
She found it by herself and used it regularly after each meal. I’ve no idea why she’s munching on the construction in the first picture – cleaning her teeth maybe or just being the silly baby she was then. Again, it’s an old photo, so Usyaka is about 1 year old here.
