The Bite is back!
13 February 2011Posted by on
Atilla has been relatively mellow, in the biting-sense, since the toyboys came on the scene. However, last week I noticed her bites were getting a bit harder…
Every week I change the ttmss swing for a clean one (yes, I have two… one for play & one to wash). The ttmss swing is Atilla’s swing. Increasingly, I have had to find imaginative ways to swap them over before Atilla bombs over & puts my fingers in their rightful place (nowhere near HER swing). This morning, because the swing was missing a perch, I thought I’d slip the perch on & change the swing for the clean one later on. Anyway, Atilla saw me pick up the perch from the cage floor & was already out for blood…. MY blood!
Note: I thought she was territorial about the mirror on the swing so I did not anticipate a problem with handling only the perch!
You will see below the damage she did to my two fingers. This was done in a matter of seconds & I am not exaggerating when I say the bites brought tears to my eyes. My fingers were throbbing for some time afterwards!
The moral of the story? Never underestimate a Pudding. 🙂
