I'm writing this so that those who care can join me in remembering a little leopard gecko who was left behind. As some of you know, I adopted a leo a month ago who was starving to death in a Petsmart and was suffering from a parasite infection. I took him because I only had space for one more reptile and his older cagemate was sick but at least was larger and had fat reserves left. This is the story of the sibling. I followed up with the little one I couldn't adopted routinely and, I must say, I am still disgusted by the neglect I witnessed. His temperatures were not maintatined properly, his shedding issues were left unaddressed and resulted in permenant blindness, and he was injured somehow and developed a lesion that took up a most of his one side. By the end of it both of his hind legs were dislocated at the knees and he had internal bleeding, leading me to believe he had been dropped by a careless employee who didn't give a ****. I finally talked the manager to letting me take it to a vet myself, after weeks of begging and being ignored. It was too late, the poor thing had to be put down. I don't know why I'm writing this other than to cope with my lingering feelings of guilt about not being able to take both siblings. I just don't want the memory of this poor little guy to be forgotten, or the epidemic of neglect and abuse in pet stores it represents. I know the little guy is in a better place now, and I certainly won't forget him. Complaints have been filed with local care agencies... we'll see what good it does.
