Let's Make Peace Tonight

When we got Lily, our cats, Foo and Olivia, hated Lily . . . with a passion, despite the fact that Lily was and is entirely submissive to them. They put up with her fine these days, but Lily was quite startled when Foo plopped down beside her on the floor today. He even decided he wanted to play with her a few minutes later, flipping over to bat at her. But I found myself repeating my mother's, "It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt," and I scooped him up. (Lily would never hurt Foo, by the way, but he would eventually swipe her hurtfully on the nose, at the very least.)
