    Some "techs" consider themselves "veterinary nurses"...there was a LONG heated thread about this a while back. Might want to read it for food for thought. Their schooling and experiences DO indeed rival registered nursing's experiences/training on the "animal" side of things. Try PMing vet tech; she can fill you in, in great detail.
    Hehehe, I just caught that last phrase, SmilingBluEyes... you trying to say something? S'okay... I talk too much in real life too. I had a class in business writing last semester and my prof kept knocking off points for being "wordy". Me? Nah, couldn't be!

    rofl Vettech. I REALLY "stepped in it", calling you a "she"...there WERE a couple "techs" there arguing the point opposing mine and I got you mixed up. Let me assure you, I ASSUME *nothing* regarding nursing and gender. Ask any male nurse here who knows of me; I am 100% in support of them Anyhow, Happy trails and my admiration goes to you in what you have done and are doing now.

    Actually, what I was referring to were the words "in great detail". I talk too much... fine, I can live with that. Its one of my few faults. :chuckle

    Admiration? For what? I have things in my life to be proud of but I dunno what I have said here that is worthy of the word "admiration". Going to school and working full time is tough but I know some who work 60+ hrs a week and are still doing well in school. I'm single and no kids... anyone who has to juggle their study schedule around kids and/or a spouse has it way tougher than I.

    Vet tech, Thanks again for your info. Yeah, my husband and I have already been dealing with stray cats for over 14 years now and love the ones we had and still have over the years. I absolutely adore cats.
