    I used to be super active in several online forums; particularly the Sphynxlair and Librarything. I'm easing back in here, and stumbling like hell trying to settle back on LT. I still automatically type that URL every other day when I forget which site I wanted to go to (the struggle of a...

    We left for a few hours and they hate each other now... happened to anyone else??

    Hubby and I went for a couple hours to run errands... typical Saturday. We got home, and Leo wasn't waiting for us... which was odd. Molly saw herself in the mirror and startled snarling and hissing. Leo came down stairs and was howling and hissing and snarling too as soon as he saw her...
