Patient Updates

Meghan and her pool-mate Prince Herring seem to be getting along well. It's funny that we can tell them apart just by their vocals... and Mrs Mackerel definitely sounds much more royal than the Prince.

Meghan is still in a tub together with Prince Herring (together, we call them "the royals"). She is already being weened and swallowing fish on her own!
