Well, I finally made good on my threat. I chomped on Mummy good. I'm not sure whether or not she's forgiven me yet, so I've hidden her camera, so that she can't take any pictures of the evidence.

See, the thing is, Mummy dragged me to the vet again last Saturday. Apparently Dr. Susanne said my little foot wound...which was rather big at first...has now gotten small enough to put a stitch in it. They seem to think I'm too old to be put under, so Dr. Susanne just gave me a local anaesthetic. Well, I have news for you: it still hurt.

Mummy was holding me while Dr. Susanne worked on my foot. I only stay still for Mummy, and I did, but I kept kicking, so it was taking a bit longer than they planned. At one point I saw an escape route...I needed a little extra traction, though. Well, when I need extra traction, I use my teeth...and I did...right into Mummy's hand!! Mummy didn't even flinch!! Dr. Susanne didn't even know I'd bitten Mummy until she showed her!!

Sue, the tech lady there, did some flushing of Mummy's bite wound (I feel so tough saying that), even under the skin, but it wasn't enough. It got infected...I'm sorry, Mummy!!

Anyway, Mummy has had to go into the hospital to get antibiotics...they stuck an IV in her arm that she had to keep there for 3 days!! Now she has some pills to take, but really, her hand is all healed up. Mummy's going to be good and take all the pills, anyway.

I wonder if hers taste like chicken...
