The only worry now is, that Manasse still refuses to eat anything, which makes this the third consecutive day of his fast. He is drinking plenty of water, but I'm informed that the feline metabolism isn't designed to cope well with prolonged periods of fasting and shuts down a hell of a lot quicker than a human's would under the same circumstances. Just a few days of not eating can already cause massive problems, I'm told; and so I'm hoping that once he realises later in the day that "hey! I haven't been nauseous for a while", he'll get his appetite back and will consent to at least taste the new diet food I've got in for him.
And, for my random observation of the day: it seems that lately, every time I turn on the telly, there's a film or TV drama starring Rhys Ifans, which means that consequently, he's fast becoming one of my favourite contemporary actors.
