    Oh, she spoke very good English. But as I said, the drug names are conflated from at least three languages, one ancient and “dead.” I’d expect broken English, but perfect medical terms. In my experience, most medical people for whom English is a second language speak it better than the average “native” speaker.

    There is no point to being hard as the bones of the earth if one cannot be a help to those in need.

    Our species has the obligation to do all we can for the sake of those species we have altered, dogs and cats in particular, as they were almost certainly the first. It does not matter that it may have been at least half their idea. And it always hurts when the best we can do is give them a gentle passage from this life.

    Ours does it free for a stray. However, our animal control does it without charge—they will charge the owner for it if the owner is a local resident.

    I just had the same experience. What got me is that this was a medical intern, and she couldn’t pronounce the actual drug names. In her defense, I think English was her second language, and drug names in particular are conflations of Greek, Latin, and English. I can’t believe they didn’t have a Merck’s Index in the program.

    I agree. As for shelter cats:

    When 8-ball went a-Viking for two months, I visited Orphans of the Storm, a local shelter, two or three times a week, hoping he’d show up there (this was in pre-chip days). I wanted to take quite a few of them home. I also convinced the management to let me into the “sick room” to give the one’s there some TLC. They needed it most of all.
