The last of the day’s warmth is evaporating into a cool night, and you’re just chewing the last bite of a rather filling meal when you hear a tip-tap of birds feet walking across the roof of your clinic. You place the dishes in a nearby sink for later, brush the crumbs from your apron, and open the front door to see a familiar brown and red bird drop merrily on to your doorstep.
”Evening, pounder! Apologies for the late letter; it was sent with a firster class stamp. That’s better than a first class stamp. Picked it up from some puffy looking hedgehog down the ways, near the bog. Anyhow, don’t want to be pecking in Moonmessenger timezones, so I’ll catch you later!” With a sharp twist and flap, the robin Noonmessenger is away.

Named for a famous Cat Laird who unknowlingly spread this disease through their dirty cutlery; they would like their dishes clean and put them away, instead of washing them with water and soap. However your patient caught it, their neck is swelling up, and their lips have sprouted some blistering warts. They'll need something that can be topically applied, on the hour, every hour, for the next few days.
