Today was the day that Alice took both Walter Gomez and LucyFur to the local vet who practices acupuncture (not together. Their sustained feuding underlay the need for some - any - remedy to be found. We single-handed, or multi-pawed, keep Feliway in business). This is Walter's response, on coming home (the little Buddha in the background seems kind of appropriate). He was told that he had Hot Energy - I guess he's cooling down. I doubt - the vet doubts - that this will produce sudden harmony in the peaceable kingdom. She thinks that Lucy may be suffering from PTSD - brought on by the advent of Kittens four years ago. But what was very good (and I wished that I could have been there myself) was the vet spending an entire hour with each of them, focusing on their bodies. She located considerable tension in Walter's cervical nerves - that would be like a pinched nerve; found that he had tension, too, in his lower spine. What one does with this information I don't quite know - massage? Lucy seems very relaxed this evening ... but we're certainly not attempting any reintegration. It's a strange feline household. Moth continues to bounce around.
