In other news: Manasse is up and about, and this has created a definite problem. Leila, who up until this morning was his best friend and surrogate mother, and who is No. 1 Cat in my household, has turned against him big time. She's attacked him so viciously, I had to lock her in the spare room, where I can still hear her hissing and spitting. She even lunged at me! She's never done that. Me and Leila, we're bestest buddies -- or at least, I thought so. Manasse is bleeding again, and very distressed. He's in the hall, sitting watch outside Leila's room, and crying plaintively -- I never knew he could make that much noise!
And the weirdest thing: Clio, who ordinarily can't stand him, although she's keeping her distance, hasn't engaged in any open hostilities...yet. What's going on here? Why have my cats suddenly swapped personalities? And how do I best protect Manasse while he needs time to heal?
