The same veterinarian who told us that Tycho would be dead by last Thanksgiving if we didn't let her run a battery of expensive tests, accused us of neglecting him, and refused to consider a payment plan to cover the expenses she demanded we incur, sent Tycho a birthday card:
It's a card generated by a machine, of course, and that machine is a better herp veterinarian than the woman who works in the office that sent it. Tycho is just fine, having turned twelve a couple of days ago. No thanks for this are due to the Worcester Cat Hospital and Bird Clinic. We wouldn't bring him back there in a million years, and if you're a herp owner in the Worcester area, I suggest that you avoid the place as well lest you and your pet be put through the same treatment that we got from them.
