We were walking around, looking at the stars, when
a cat came up to us. It was a very friendly cat and
we petted it for a while. As we walked away, it sprang
on the back of Val's leg, sinking it's top and bottom
teeth into her. The bite was bleeding pretty badly
and the island's nurse had us bumped onto the first
available flight back to Kwajalein the next morning.
Val went to see a doctor who put her on antibiotics.
Thankfully, the bite never became infected. Lesson
learned: Stay away from stray
