Starting out as a tiny distribution company working out of a garage, this company was forged into a large and impressive corporation by its founder and CEO, Oswald Proboscis.

Services

Interclinic

For the mixed-species couple who are not naturally interfertile, Interclinic provides the latest in genetic jiggery-pokery to make your dream of children come true. A wolf married to a rabbit? No problem. Furthermore, if you are a naturally infertile hybrid yourself (such as a mule), Interclinic can still use samples of your DNA to provide you with children. Naturally, this is an extremely expensive proposition, and we have quite a long waiting list.

Scratch & Sniff, Psychic Investigations

Catscratch Skunk (the “Scratch”) and an un-named partner (presumably the “Sniff”) who provide “psychic” or “paranormal” consultation services.
