I am so much older than I can take

When I'm dead, I want to be remembered as someone who did exactly what she wanted to do ...

but I'll probably just be remembered as a malevolent bitch. either way.




I'm burning out on work fast here. Two more days. I've spent the last two days taking care of a braindead corpse of a cat on and off the ventilator. I love my gomers, but i hate the owner, and I've still upset about the death of Sunset. It's unfair. The cat that should be alive is dead, and the cat with mush for a liver and a dozen other terminal problems is alive because we are going to great lengths to keep her that way. It coded four times yesterday. The skin is starting to break down. I don't feel bad for the cat, because i can't even think of her as a cat at this point. It's just a huge waste of resources.
The owner is upset because she doesn't think that we're doing enough to make her cat better.

i have my cynicism as a defense mechanism.




I got a few happy hours in before work, and it was nice. I have sunday to look forward to. I have lots of things to look forward to.

yanno- I was thinking about mammals vs. reptiles, amphibians, & insects (hereby referred to as creepy-crawlies) and the relative ease most people can get over losing one of them, compared to a dog or cat or etc...even though 95% of my pets the last ten years have been cold blooded, I gotta admit they are easier to forget. Same with fish. Do y'all treat reptiles or birds..? And don't you have a buncha pets @ home..? I think Steph mentioned once you had an impressive Zoo!

have a good weekend, Madam Malevolent ;)

We treat almost anything that isn't venomous. or monkeys. No monkeys for us. 99% of the business for us is cats and dogs, though.

I've only got one non-traditional pet right now, my parrot. And as much of an evil bastard as he is, i value him as much as any of my cats. Smaller things, parakeets and fish and such that I've owned, I can't say that I valued them all that much. I couldn't tell you why, i think it's an intelligence/responsiveness thing.

Some people that bring exotic pets into my work are willing to put more money to their care than many dog/cat owners. Some won't pay anything for treatment, citing the fact that they can get a new hamster/mouse/budgie for a few dollars. I don't like these people.

Madam Malevolent ... i like that. And i'm adding you, since steph says that you're good people.

Add away!

That'll gimme more of a reason to LJ.

So...you don't treat anything venemous, 'eh? I was thinking of shipping my ex-wife out for y'all to give her the booster shots...but I see now this will not work.

Is that an african grey...? Looks fat & happy! If you like him evil, give him his own private television...
