So, I took the pig to the vet this morning with The Kid. Actually, Zipporah (that's its name), spent the night at the vet. So I took The Kid to the vet to finalize options. She has decided that she wants it treated -- not put down (which would have been my choice).

The leg has to be AMPUTATED!!! It's a Swiffer that poops, and we're going to spend close to $600 on vet fees, pain meds, antibiotics, and amputation! I'm seriously grumpy about this.

The Kid has decided that she needs to ask people for odd jobs to help pay for it. There's no way she's going to come close, but at least she's trying.

Moral of the story: Just say "NO" to free pets.
