    OK OK, BEFORE YOU ASK I AM AWARE NOT TO GIVE FINCHES STRING OR IT GETS CAUGHT IN THEIR FEET. SO I HAD A LITTLE THING MADE FROM A SOCK, AND THEY PULLED SOME STRING AND I WAS LIKE OH WELL, BUT THEN, TODAY I WOKE UP AND CHECKED ON THEM AND THEN I SAW THAT MY MALE ZEBRA PIKACHU WAS HANGING UPSIDE DOWN WITH NO SUPPORT UNDER HIM!! HIS LEG WAS ALL RED, SO I QYUCKLY GOT A NAIL CUTTER AND CUT HIM OUT, BUT I COULDNT GET A SMALL PIECE OFF HIS FOOT. HES NOT EVEN TAME AND HE WAS SO TIRED HE SAT IN MY HAND AND CLOSED HIS EYES. I SET HIM BACK ON HIS CAGE FLOOR, AND NOW HES BALANCING ON A FOOD CONTAINER. WILL HE GET BETTER?! HELP!!!

    He should be okay, but you need to get the small piece off of his foot or it may cut off circulation. If necessary get someone to help you.
