I love this thread! Walmart bettas break my heart and it is so good to see so many folks rescuing them. And wow, do they turn out beautiful!!!
Here is my little Thelma Lou.I don't have an "at first" picture of her unfortunately, this is a recent one. I first saw her at Walmart on a shopping trip sometime before Thanksgiving. I kept going back to visit her after that. She was trying so hard to keep her spirits up ~ even though her little cup was getting filthier and filther.
.She was like the little fish dept. "Walmart Greeter" ~ always friendly and interested in whoever walked by.
After about three weeks of that, I decided I had to have her. I promised her on a Thursday that if she could make it until Saturday she'd have a home. Then I went home, and begged my husband to give me the tank I knew I was getting for Christmas, right now
!!! Well after some tears and a few vague threats on my part ~ he agreed . We got the tank set up in a hurry and home she came! She was actually in pretty good shape, considering, just a bit of fin rot and very thin.
Here's to wishing on a star that all those neglected Walmart bettas get good homes.....
