  1. We had a bit of a traumatic evening last night, Effie managed to get a splinter in her finger and even though we tried to be gentle in removing it, she just got more and more upset. At the point where I was pretty much restraining her whilst Dean wrestled with her hand clenched into a fist we gave up. I put some bicarbonate of soda paste on it after much googling but this morning she won't let us near it. In our bid to help I feel like we've broken her trust a little and now have no idea how to get the splinter out. This is why we don't have giant cacti all round the house, I'm fairly certain she'd be looking like a hedgehog after one day. Any help or advice as always is welcome xx
