So yesterday we had a strange and funny incident involving Beowulf. The vet asked us to get a sample of Beowulf's mucus so they could test it. Unfortunately, he kept sneezing and then cleaning himself before we could swab a sample. Finally, he was sitting on Liz's lap and sneezed. She quickly held his head still so he couldn't lick it up and I rushed to grab the sterile swab kit. I had to hold him still while Liz swabbed his nostril. I don't think he's forgiven us yet.
Meanwhile, Liz took the swab to the vet's today and they said they'll look at it, but we don't know if it has enough fluid on it for them to find anything. Will they send it to the lab and tell us we have "cotton?"
P.S. -- Yes, I've been dying to use the headline "is it snot or not."
