An Unusual Patient 😄
Me: Beta what’s your name and age?
Kid: But I am not the patient!
Me: Then who is?
Kid: A rat.
Me (Deciding to play along): Okay what’s the rat’s name?
Kid: It doesn’t have a name.
Me: Oh you must give it a name. Anyway, what happened to the rat?
Kid: Got bit by a cat.
Me (continuing to amuse him): Okay, then you need to take it to a Vet.
Kid: But this dispensary was nearby so..
Me: Where is it?
And then he opens the bag he was holding in his hand.
Fearing seeing a dead rat inside the bag I moved back and then saw this cute little creature wriggling inside the bag, very much alive and active!
He took it out and held in his hands and there were bite marks, thankfully not deep. We gave him some antibiotic ointment to apply on the wound and suggested him to take it to a vet if needed. Meanwhile everyone there had a little playtime with our unusual patient, who was, by the way very compliant. 😄
