Mum came home yesterday and grabbed Josie's leg and ran her hands up and down it, much to Josie's surprise. I can't say either of them looked like they enjoyed the experience.
Then mum said, "Cool."
"Yeah, Cool!" I said, joining in politely.
"No, I mean it's not hot," explained my mum. One of the vet nurses had said maybe Josie was bitten and that mum should check for infection. One clue would be if her paw got hot. Josie hadn't wanted to play yesterday morning and mum said after that possibility that Josie had an infection and an abcess developing was in her head she was desperate to get back and check.
"Although not desperate enough to come and do it," I pointed out.
Mum said her boss was commenting that my mum hasn't had any emergency leave in August, pretty much the first month this year that's happened, and then they both looked at the calendar and realised there is still August left to go. A lot of good will has been used up this year and mum doesn't want to push it!
Amyway Josie's leg is fine and she didn't mind mum feeling it all which mum thought was a good sign and Josie played very energetically last night - just in case not playing could herald a vet visit - and we've seen her sitting with both paws on the ground so it looks like her paw is finally recovering.
Hoorah! Frankly it's time I got a bit of the attention.

Josie is very patient with your Mum. I HATE having my paws touched. Can't stand it. I even bite Mom a little if she doesn't let go of my paw. I'm glad that Josie's paw is better.
