Mammalian Assistance: I didn't finish the hummus I had for a midmorning snack (I ran out of carrot sticks) so, in the interests of fairness, I gave Paladin the bowl to lick, and offered Signy a bite or two stuck on my fingers.She's a very dainty eater, and I got sort of bored standing there waiting for her to lick it off one tiny tonguetip at a time.
So I stuck it on her nose.
