    Re: So the plan is to rehab and rehome this girl. Horrified at her health.

    As of last night she was doing good. The vet said she was hunting so must be feeling some better. Was told she did eat a small rat the vet had in his freezer for one of his animals. She gobbled it down and was looking for more. Poor thing. Found food and hunting like it might be her last meal. She is on smaller prey for a few weeks till we get her healthy. Don't want her to start growing again until her burns are healed and her stomach most likely has shrunk. I pick her up Saturday if all goes well.

    This girl is a survivor. Still doing great. Was told last night that she is always hunting except right after eating. She shed last night and the visibility of the burns is more apparent. Cream and injections still to go. I pick her up tomorrow morning. I hope she keeps doing well. No mites! So happy to hear that. All fecal and viral test are negative. No word on them prosecuting him for cruelty. Hope he pays big time.

    Awesome work with this animal!!!! She's damn lucky you came along.
    Honestly, this is a case where I feel an eye for an eye would be appropriate punishment. The previous owner should be forced to live the way he treated that poor snake. I guarantee he wouldn't mistreat another animal ever again.

    I agree completely. If was a child he would already be in jail.

    Re: So the plan is to rehab and rehome this girl. Horrified at her health.

    She is home now. Took her home Saturday. She has been through a lot the past few days so not going to bother her till next weekend for photos. She did poop last night so I offered her a crawler rat. Keeping it small for now. She showed no interest. She went right into her hide and did not come out. Will have to take her back for a check up Wednesday and a shot of antibiotics again. They are going to teach me how to do it correctly. My vet knows I am hands on when it comes to the care of my animals. Love the education! She has been calm every time me or the vet or vet techs have handled her. Her belly is healing nicely. Keeping her temps a little cooler almost 83 on the hot side and 78 cooler side. Only handling the next few days will be putting cream on her belly and taking her to get shots. I think she is going to be ok as long as she keeps eating. I know I have been promising photos but don't want to do more than I have to.

    I almost forgot to add... when animal control showed up to his house they found other reptiles that were in bad shape. They took all of them from him and took him off to jail. Not sure if he made bond (did not tell me that). Court date is November 6th. Both me and my vet will be witnesses.

    Oh no kidding?? That's awesome!!

    I really wish there was an application process required to purchase animals. It takes YEARS to adopt a child, but as long as you have the money you can purchase an animal within a few minutes...Then this guy and others like him could be "blacklisted" and not be able to purchase animals. Granted other people could purchase the animal for him, it would at least help, despite not being a perfect system.

    No, that's OK...getting her healthy now is ALL that matters...not photos!

    Horrible what bad owners put animals thru, & even if it was a dog or cat, not much justice. In many if not most states, people convicted of animal abuse can turn right
    around & own more. That's one thing I miss about living in California...it was illegal to drive around with your dog bouncing around in the back of an open pick-up,
    like they do around here.
