The Chinese has a saying that goes like this: Big problem becomes small problem; Small problem becomes no problem.
Which would be what I hope has happened in my cat clan after yesterday's triple clash of the titans (details in above link).
Indy was traumatised all night and it was only much, much later that I got him to eat something. That was also when I noticed one of his claws had been bitten off (either by himself or by one of the terrorists). I applied some iodine on it, but he licked it all off. There was no bleeding, thank goodness for that.
All night, he slept on my table, hardly moving. Perhaps he was having a slight fever, but since he was eating, I thought it should be okay and did not warrant a trip to the emergency clinic. I fortified him with Vetri DMG, of course.
Then, just before going to bed, I thought it might be wiser to lock the two terrorists out of the room for the night. So the two were "lured" out into the pantry (with food, of course) and I closed the door on them. Sorry fellows, I cannot read cat minds and I certainly cannot risk you fellows launching another attack on poor Indy in the middle of the night.
The five stayed inside. I had a litter box and a bowl of water in the room for the night.
But as always, the heart fell soft for the two terrorists and after about an hour and a half, I decided I'd camp in the room for the night to make sure I was around to take care of things, so the two terrorists were allowed in again. After all, it was a cold night.
All through the night, Indy hardly moved an inch.
But this morning, at about 4.30am, Cleo made the breakfast call. The two terrorists were outside in the pantry. Hmm...they went out by themselves?
As dawn broke, Indy looked much better already.
I prepared their food and Indy had his favourite raw chicken liver. He ate. What a relief!
Indy looks "normal" again.
Titan No.3? In the making?
And Tabs, we said we're on the werewolves' side, so please cut out that Vampire look, okay? It's creepy.
