At the previous grooming, Pfffit had attacked her when Gretta tried to clip Pfffit's claws. Even though the harness had been tied securely to the table, Gretta was scratched severely which required stitches. Gretta shivered at the memory.
Mrs. Hick had covered the cost of the injury and work time lost, of course. Mortified, Mrs. Hick made many promises.
When the door opened, Gretta greeted Mrs. Hick kindly. Mrs. Hick anxiously assured her that Pfffit had eaten all the meal served at lunch time. At that, Gretta lifted a woozy Pfffit, which weakly batted a paw at Gretta. Ah, my nemisis...we meet again on a field of battle.
In fifteen minutes flat, Pfffit was back in the cage and driven away. Mrs. Hick had paid a three figures for the grooming, but it was worth every single penny.
Gretta whistled as she counted out the bills.
Wednesday Words meme was the brainchild of Delores, who tossed out 6 to 12 words for bloggers to use as a chance to try some other genre. When she and her computer continued to have battles, Delores gave the W.W. baton to other bloggers. This month of July, Elephant's Child is providing W.W. words. Bloggers may post in her comment section, or write that you will post at your site. Link it back to her site, allowing us to find you.
In August, HannahBananaface will challenge writers with her word selection.
