Karen Jo: I got another wand toy, then the other wand mousie, so we could keep playing.
Oja: I didn't want the other wand toy and the mean Boys eventually took the other mousie away from me, too. I hissed at them, but it didn't do any good.
Karen Jo: You had mostly stopped playing with the other wand mousie by the time Rocio decided that he wanted it.
Oja: It's still not fair. Austin and Rocio want whatever toy I am playing with and Rocio eats my food.
Karen Jo: There's a lot of that going on. Spyro was eating the Boys food this morning, too. I think I better give you some good Mom Time this afternoon.
Oja: That sounds good.
Sypyro: I had it for a long time before you moved in.
Austin: Well, I'm here now and I'm gonna play with it. So there!
Karen Jo: Things are moving right along. Oja is sleeping with me again most nights. She doesn't let the Boys spook her off the bed any more. I have had up to three at a time on the bed with no fuss. Oja only seems to hiss now when it seems to her like one of the Boys wants something she has or that she considers hers -- if they come too close to her food bowl, if they approach while she is having Mom Time in my lap, if she is playing with a toy and they want to "help" her play with it. It's kind of a standoff, like when she first came out of the safe room. She isn't afraid of the Boys, she just doesn't like them yet. The Boys aren't a bit afraid of her, either. I hope Oja does finally decide to accept the Boys. I've got half a mind to adopt them if she does. I would hate to see them adopted separately. The Boys can be adopted from Felines and Friends New Mexico. They are FeLV+, but in excellent health otherwise.
