Last night I trimmed Bennie's nails. I always hate doing that, because it's stressful for both of us. But that's something I feel I can do, rather than take him to the vet. Well, I tried to do the job as quickly, gently and carefully as possible, but I managed to clip one nail a little too much. It started to bleed a little, leaving tiny spots of blood on my finger when I got him back on my hand. He jumped up on my shoulder and wouldn't let me get my hand near him to look at his toe more closely. It was his bed-time so I just put him back in his cage. I could see his toe was okay, so i covered him for the night. That night, I had a dream that there was blood all over my shoulder! I woke with a start, thankful it was just a dream. In the morning, Bennie was fine, his normal perky self.
