Re: Turtle with multiple symptoms of pneumonia, he good luck. Hopefully your mom will learn more animal responsibility. You seem to be the mature one in that family when it comes to the welfare of an animal. Sure he was inexpensive. So was my cat Sam. He was $35 at the SPCA. There is no difference between an inexpensive cat and an inexpensive turtle, besides the fact one is warm and fuzzy and the other is small and cold blooded. They are both living creatures and I give you a pat on the back for wanting to give the best care for your animal.
