The days when the clinic takes free walk-ins are always busy, but they’re also the days when Sid feels the most fulfilled in his work. He’s been seeing walk-in patients all morning, tending to injuries and illnesses for catpeople who can’t afford to pay for treatment. There are so many of them fending for themselves on the street, and through no fault of their own - the system they live in doesn’t give catpeople many ways to make a living. Sid never feels like he’s doing enough to help, but by offering free treatment to those who need it, he’s at least doing
Sid is a little surprised to hear that it’s lunchtime already, when Joe comes in - he’d been so focused on taking care of the patients who had come in that he hadn’t realized he was hungry until Joe reminded him. He can’t help but smile at how well Joe knows him. Joe is always looking out for him like this, making sure he doesn’t overwork himself, and Sid is grateful for it. When he spends so much time caring for others, it’s good to have someone around to care for
It’s really wonderful having Joe here. Not that Sid had been lonely before, exactly, not with all the other people who work in the clinic around, but Sid has never been close with them like he is with Joe. Joe is his companion, his partner, and everything in Sid’s life has improved since Joe has been in it, including his work.
“Alright,” he says, smiling at Joe as he continues to clean up the examination room. “There’s not much left to do here, I’ve already cleaned the instruments. Just have to put a few things away.” He picks up a bottle of rubbing alcohol and a jar of cotton swabs and carries them back to their cupboard. “Can you change the cover on the examination table? Then we’ll be all done and we can wash up for lunch.”
