Karen Jo: I know, but you started it. Oja may not have helped if it hadn't been already worked on.
Spyro: Hmmphf. Cool Dude and I are almost friends now. We play chase and hide-and-seek and smack-from-ambush. Mom got out the cat-sized cardboard box and it makes a great fort for attack and defense. Hissy Boy has stopped hissing at me altogether. We gave each other a nose kiss this morning just after I woke Mom up for breakfast. We also played attack the fort together, taking turns being in the fort. I am going to love having these boycats around.
Karen Jo: I think they like your litter better. They have this strange stuff in little pellets.
Oja: Grump. I guess I can't do anything about it. Hissy Boy has stopped hissing at me until I hiss or growl at him first. I am getting a little better about it all. I will let them walk all around my chair or the couch and I won't hiss at them until they look at me. I am on the couch because I just had a really nice session of Mom Time. I love Mom Time. I let one of those stinky boys get within inches of me before I hissed at him while Mom was petting me. Mom thinks I am feeling more secure because I went to take my afternoon nap in the cat bed on the floor.
Karen Jo: It is the first time you have spent any time on the floor since the boys arrived. You are off your food a little bit.
Oja: You are putting poison in it.
Karen Jo: That's not poison, it's L-Lysine. The boys are on it and your vet recommended it. Remember that paste I used to put on your paw every day?
Oja: And I sent flying everywhere, including the walls and drapes? Yeah, I remember.
Karen Jo: I'm putting it on your food now. I figure it won't be long before every cat is into every other cat's food, so I want all the food to have the L-Lysine in it. That way the boys will get their dose, no matter whose food they eat and it's good for you, too.
Oja: I guess I'll get used to it.
Spyro: I don't much like it either, but I get too hungry to worry about it. Speaking of which, isn't it past time that you gave us our dry food ration? I'm starving.
Karen Jo: You are right. I'll finish posting this and get right to it.
