    Hi Jeff,

    Would you mind if I posted this pic. on our facebook and website? I am the managing director of a charitable organization within the oldest continuously operating veterinary school in North America (150 years old) and would love to share this poster with our vet. students, faculty members and donors.

    Many thanks,

    I love this! It’s such an adorable comic. I would become a veterinarian too, of course, to see adorable kittens named Muffin. But once you get blood and surgery involved…

    Also, the “was” is right. It’s more of a spoken/informal/slang type of thing, but it’s not entirely grammatically incorrect. If you were to write a published essay, “were” is definitely the better choice, but for this informal instance I think it works just fine.

    “WAS” is right, if it’s a possibility we use ‘was'; for improbable situation like ‘if I were a kitten’ it’s “‘were’.
    Anyway, the sweet comic doesn’t need grammar police.

    Same reason why I would never be a gynecologist
