I totally understand that from a donators point of view. I have a donation program set up with her, 10% of all sales goes to her. I am so glad she can help, that all of you can help this little lethal.

She also said that he has now eaten all his veggies, tipped over his bowls and is sleeping peacefully after his busy morning :DThe people at the pet store were very kind, and clearly cared about him. They did not charge the $10 fee, and gave me his bowls so that he would have familiar things around him. They also offered his cage, but I didn't take it as I had one exactly the same here.
His name is Sabre (as in sabre-tooth tiger, because of his one tooth). He's two years old. He had been at the pet store about a year, after being left there along with his son (!!!). The son was not a lethal, and was rehomed.
They told me he is blind and deaf, although I will reserve judgment for now as to whether he's completely deaf – he jumped when one of the dogs barked, but it could have been coincidence. They said he only eats spring mix greens, but I sliced up romaine and cucumber, and offered some shaved carrots, all of which he consumed very happily. They also said he doesn't drink out of a bottle and constantly tips his water bowl over. I decided to try the bottle and, lo and behold, he drinks from it perfectly well.
They were feeding him on a seed mix, but he seems happy enough to eat pellets.
They told me he has no back teeth, but as he eats pellets and hay, I don't think that is true. Hopefully, though, it means the back teeth are not posing any problems. I didn't get to take him to see my vet as she wasn't available until 2pm, and I had to get back home. He seems in good health, though, just needs his nails clipping, which I'll do later this week.
What happens now? In theory, I can look after him until the end of July, but it would be better for him to be moved sooner, so that he doesn't get too settled here and then get uprooted again. If he will be with me until July, I shall probably move him to a foster home, which would have more time to give him individual attention.
He's a cute little guy!

Let me know who needs gas money when they need it.
Enormous kudos to all involved for getting him.
