Guestbook for Fillet

  1. Hi Fillet- I hope you are named after a silly food called a steak. They are yummy and if you didn’t have to eat fish I bet you would like them too. The staff at MMRC will give you lots and lots of love and fishes. Be strong and brave! Get well soon.

  2. Good girl Miss Fillet! Look at how much progress you have made by being brave and working hard. Keep eating your fishes so you grow bigger and stronger every day. That way you can gain the weight you need to be released back into the big blue ocean that is waiting for you. Keep up the good work, I am proud of you!
