you should see jack and tech. they deal with each other when we aren't looking. if someone is paying attention, then they fight. so deliciously cute and entertaining. having gotten though the rough part with jack, leeloo is now asserting her alpha cat reign. she's even chased tech.
on the down side, one of the cats got to the hamster while she was in her cage. she has a gash on her little neck. we cleaned it out and cleaned and sterilized her cage to avoid infection and put New Skin on the wound after cleaning it with peroxide. we should be vets, i swear. we have since found a temporary solution, blocking off the top of the table where the hamster is. i also caught tech trying to get up there and sprayed him with the water bottle. i got the hoped for response of him running to me for protection from the water. as long as he knows not wither the water comes from, it will be really easy to discipline him. though i don't want to overstep my bounds, he is M's cat, not mine. i wonder if he's under the chair right now (tech, not M).
