Inconvenient truth: The whole kitten caboodle

Creature Comforts

We named the inconvenience "Shelley," to honor the receptionist, Michelle, who felt sorry for her one fine summer Saturday morning and brought her to our office. Shelley was a bedraggled-looking, flea-infested, skinny stray cat who appeared that morning on Michelle's doorstep and tried desperately to enter her home. She was not the least bit threatened by two, large barking dogs, nor was she deterred by two rowdy, curious young boys, yelling and pushing each other to get a better look through the front window. Michelle couldn't keep her, and didn't even want to risk bringing her into her home temporarily, so, for lack of other immediate options, she brought her to work. This is universally considered, in the veterinary business, a bad move, as we cannot take in all the homeless waifs we come across, for obvious reasons.
