I am so angry. He was a classroom pig. What kind of lesson is that?
Animal Control officers are being given documentation of his condition, and will hopefully be going to make a visit to the classroom. I'm going to press hard for this to happen, as this is totally unacceptable in my opinion.
I took pictures and I'll post them tomorrow. The shelter started him on baytril and I've already given him a foot soak. He's eating like a pig. I seem to be out of chewable vitamin C, I'll pick up more tomorrow and start supplementation.
leebee thanks for helping this guy. I hope amputation isn't necessary.
How is Nelson. Has he had his surgery yet?
Here's the sweet boy.
You can see in this picture that he has a sebaceous cyst.
His foot is so swollen that you can't see his toes anymore, just his toenails.
His poor naked, skinny belly.
I hate to think a teacher will be facing charges, but PLEASE.. what on earth what he/she thinking??
The poor little guy is adorable too! I hope and pray he makes it! :s

I hope somehow. someway whoever did this will get some jail time. Probably not though because it's just a "pocket pet."
I would love to personally confront the individual(s) who did this

You're a wonderful person to take this one. Thank goodness he has someone who cares. I hope that this has a happy ending, although, looking at his condition, you have to wonder.
