“Upon reflection, I now think Martin knew exactly what was wrong with Purrla,” Troy said. “That she was too cold. Every day he sat there on top of her. No biting, no wrestling, no ear twisting. He wouldn't even get up to eat. We had to spoon-feed him because he wouldn't get up for water. Only to use the facilities, then it was back to the watch post. When we went to inspect her after we noticed she was blinking and meowing again (before she only slept and ate) he hissed at us. Didn't take a swipe, just a hiss, and everyone was surprised.”
Everyone was shocked when Martin hissed, because normally, he’s the absolute friendliest kitten, and they knew it had to be because he was wildly protective of his sick sister. Martin knew she wasn’t feeling well, and he was determined to protect her until she was better, no matter what.
