Flash has a piece of tape stuck to him. I know it sounds silly, but it's on the front of his chest, between his front legs and his head, so I can't remove it without him biting me. I even have the teeth marks on my hand to prove it.
It's this brown tape that I use on the corners of some walls and furniture specifically to keep Flash from chewing on them. He can never seem to lift the edges to get it off, but this time, he managed to poke a hole near the middle and rip a piece off that's maybe two inches long and half an inch wide, and it's just stuck there across his chest.
He's been trying to get it off himself, as it obviously annoys him, and I've tried to help, but as I said, I get bit. I also sprayed him with some water, in the hopes of loosening the adhesive, but that didn't seem to help any.
My big problem is that I'm just not good enough at handling him to force him to stay still and let me get to this thing. I'm sure I could peel it off, or maybe cut it off with scissors, if I could get to it for 15 seconds without being bitten. I thought about wearing gloves, so he could bite those instead, but then I wouldn't have good enough control with my fingers to manipulate the tape.
I don't think he's going to be able to get it off by himself, although he keeps trying, so I'm not really worried about him swallowing it if I just leave it there. So I'm thinking of just calling the vet first thing tomorrow morning and bringing him in for help.
Any other suggestions?
