Pistachio came inside after running through the snow for about 20 minutes and immediately raced through the house, leaving red splotches on everything he touched. Yes, once again he in bleeding from one of his paws — luckily nothing major, just a little scratch that is impossible to find. A thorough examination of all four paws revealed blood on two of them, but no indications of the source.
I finally gave up and just wrapped both of his paws until I am sure the bleeding has stopped. Seems like a logical approach to the situation, right? Unfortunately, Pistachio doesn’t agree and is making his displeasure well known. Two treats and a lot of snuggling later and he’s finally resigned himself to tolerate the indignity of purple bandages. Personally, I think they look pretty cool, but try explaining that to Pistachio.
