In other news, Maw took Jenny in to have her nails trimmed because she was sticking to the carpet, and can't pull them out because she is getting a wee bit older in age. So, Maw is holding onto Jenny by the scruff of the neck, and Jenny is NOT A HAPPY CAMPER. Remember that Jenny is still mostly feral, and it is only because she is not as strong as in her younger years, and can't hear ANYTHING at all, that Maw is able to catch her to put her in a carrier. Now, she has had her nails trimmed before by the v-e-t, and all went fine. But this time, Jenny reached around and bit Maw on her hand during the trimming. And Jenny escaped from Maw's hold, and only had 3 paws trimmed rather than 4 paws!
So Maw scrubs her hand with iodine a few times, and then goes home and soaks it in iodine in water for 1/2 hour, but still calls the bean v-e-t and asks for antibiotics because she knows that a bite from a poodin is not a good thing. And yes, the bean v-e-t called in a prescription for antibiotics, and even the next day Maw's hand was a little bit swollen, and Jenny didn't even bite too deeply. And the bean nurse asks what we are going to do with the cat that keeps biting Maw, and Maw tells her that this is a different cat from the one who bit her last June. (That was Orinch last June.) So, always get those antibiotics people! Call your bean v-e-t or go to see them immediately!
