HISTORY

Reported by Pottster Zig

“GEORGE”
“Tribble George has been very accident prone of late. I’ll repost the photo, but since this was taken, he’s walked/run into the three more doors, fallen in the bath (and very nearly drowned), and had a very near miss with the dog. (I keep telling him, “Don’t sleep with the toys! Milo won’t realise it’s you!). I have become increasingly worried about him.”
ECCENTRIC BEHAVOURAL EVIDENCE
“I’m afraid I’ve caught “George” looking at some very odd images on the internet … so I’ve had to cancel his page.”

CASE NOTES

A small specimen of Polygeminus grex has just been presented to the Medical Facility apparently there are no qualified Vetinarians currently on Board and I am expected to “do my best”.

The first difficulty was to remove the band aids from the fur of the creature.  Shaving the specimen caused the Attendant: Pottster Zig a great deal angst.

“George Pottster-Zig” (“George”)  is being kept overnight for observation.

Attendant Pottster Zig has been give a mild sedative and is now sleeping in her Quarters.

CASE NOTES:

George Pottster-Zig addressed as “George” was contained over-night for observation.  After several hours I was able to adjust the tri-corder to map his neural pathways.  Subsequent scans of the creature revealed a severe case of Myopia.  Research in this area is embryonic however after several placement trials the optic enhancement equipment now seems to be in the correct place.  I believe though that once the fur has regrown it will be difficult to locate the creatures blepharo

Research has revealed that these are best kept as herd creatures and will naturally gravitate towards images of their own kind.  Or in “George’s” case what the specimen perceived to be images of his own kind.  Specimens of Polygeminus grex genus require a great deal of physical contact to ensure their survival.  Once they have achieved maximum saturation they will voculise their contentment.

As Four of Four now has 15.4 Siphonapterology marks denials that “petting  the creature  “George Pottster-Zig” did not take place are clearly unfounded.  Both have been treated.  The specimen seemed to enjoy the sonic shower.  The same could not be said for Four of Four.

Four of Four denies feeding the creature.  However, purring noises emanating from her alcove would suggest otherwise.

One of Four has been called to my office to review this new development.
