The policeman on duty takes a reluctant Taichi and the fox to the local Yajima Veterinary Clinic. It turns out that Taichi has been living with Ko, the vet, and his teenage daughter Misuzu since his free-spirited mother Ritsuko went to Micronesia to work as a photographer.
Many people leave abandoned animals with Ko. He has very few paying customers and most of his income is generated from boarding a friendly dog so frequently that it is almost part of the family.
Taichi feels abandoned as well and clashes with Ko when the vet sees the new arrival as a burden, especially after discovering that the fox is deaf and blind.

Even though Taichi gets her to eat, Helen suffers increasing fits stemming from her damaged brain.
