No seals were harmed during the creation of this blog…

My husband and nanny-in-chief, Elton, called me in a flat spin five minutes ago. He told me Thomas, pictured below has just bitten him and drawn blood! Wanted to know if He should get the Tetanus shot or if Thomas should or should both of them? After snortling and cackling for a bit I managed to talk him back into the house before he set the alarm and raced off to hospital.
Okay so this is how it happened. We have this little family ritual that involves us tottering over to the Waterfront to check out the seals (behind the Aquarium) or to Kalkbay to watch the seals being fed fish entrails by the fisher folk. The Waterfront seals are tame and lazy though compared to the Kalkbay tsotsis and we prefer the Kalkbay lot. My son becomes a bit of a whirling dervish and sometimes an outright tokoloshe when he sees the Kalkbay lot in action. The seals duck and dive and just about walk on the water to get to the stinky fishy bits first! Thomas shrieks, jumps, whoops, screams, stomps and whirls when he sees the seals come in for the ‘kill’. We’ve lost the following:
1 x Avent green sippy cup ( so if you ever hear about a seal found with a sippy cup in it’s guts, send Greenpeace our way!)
2 x Avent bottles (see above)
countless x Joubert & Monty baby biltong
and whatever the dervish had in his paws at the moment of rapture!So Thomas has had a fair bit of seals-chomping-fishy-bits-action and he’s taken to eating like a seal for just over a week now. Give him a Flings chip and he chomps it out of your hand, piece of sarmie, pizza or any finger food and out comes the seal fangs. Elton says he was cooking and had the Seal in his high chair and fed him a julienne carrot. He’s usually quick because we’ve learnt over the past week to be quick with finger foods because of the Seal but this time Elt was distracted by the phone. Needless to say, the Seal chomped down and daddy recoiled and blood was let. After my snortling and cackling stopped, my poor long suffering husband told me to come home soon as the ‘baby Seal’ is losing his cuteness rapidly…

    I have tears rolling down my cheeks from laughter! The Seal doesn’t look so dangerous in the pic, maybe he was provoked? LOL
