Keep us posted on little Virga's leg...or is it Virga's little leg? At any rate, hope it's nothing major.
As for the food thing, Annie scarfs hers down and little Zoey has no teeth so it takes her longer. Zoey will let Annie eat anything outside of her bowl, but she will let Annie know by growling that her snout is not to actually enter the bowl until she has walked away. I leave it alone, figure they have their own hierarchy and it's none of my business so long as no one gets hurt.
