You Want the Pit?

Yesterday I had a mango. As I peeled it and ate it, I would feed bits and pieces to Pellet and Cali. At the end of the mango, of course, was the pit. Since they had enjoyed the mango so much, I figured I would hold the pit and have Pellet lick it and eat the rest of the mango that I couldn't get off of it. In retrospect, this was quite a dumb move, because in a blink of an eye Pellet managed to grab the mango pit with his teeth, pull it off my hand and secure it in his mouth.

Freaking out and thinking that he was going to swallow the pit and choke and die, I called Norm over and the both of us tried to open Pellet's mouth to get the pit out. We were unsuccessful and Pellet swallowed the pit, just like that. He did not choke and he did not die. Instead, he threw it up earlier this afternoon.

Pellet is now pit-free again!

I would have had your same reaction! Yikes - I am glad he was ok.
