A few minutes ago I had a rather intense standoff with Ezio (my difficult screamer). After all those scratches and struggles, I decided to take out Bigby to end the night on a good note. Bigby is OBSESSED with grooming me. He licks, nibbles, sorts out, rearranges, and caresses every part of me. It's always quite adorable, and I absolutely love having a cuddly little boy who wants nothing but to be with me. However, just now, I took him out and leaned down to give him kisses. Lately he's been obsessed with my mouth, and has tried multiple times to lick inside my lips/tongue. However, this time he quite literally forced himself inside my mouth. It hurt. A lot. With his front paws, he pulled down my bottom lip (SHARP CLAWS ON SOFT GUMS), then rammed his head between my teeth. Once my mouth was slightly open, he just forced himself in. My tongue went up in protest, so his claws raked the soft flesh underneath. Because my tongue was up, he couldn't get past, but with the intensity he was going at, I don't doubt he would've tried going further down my throat. The whole time his claws were clawing and grabbing my cheeks/gums, which hurt very much, and he was furiously licking everything that he could. This all happened within 3 seconds or so. Then he did it again, and I had to put him back because he kept pulling down my lip. It wasn't even having to do with the smell of my mouth-- I've eaten and then played with the rats many times and he's never been this... violently affectionate? Lol it's certainly not biggest problem ever, but it took me so off guard. Why the heck would he so forcefully invade my mouth and attempt to go down my throat? Is this a plot to choke me? Hahaha.
