Maggie has never done this before but last night I have an iced white chocolate mocha from Starbucks that I had almost finished that was sitting on the dining room table next to me. Maggie jumped right up in my lap, grabbed the straw and pulled it out of my cup, dropped it on the floor, and then started licking and chewing it up!! I know it is probably the medicine in your case but you never know! I'm glad to hear Summer is almost done with her medicine!!
