That Tortoise is useless, it didn't even eat the cat!!!!
I love the way kittens bounce about...
We used to have a tortoise and the cats largely ignored it. But, they did snuggle-up, with him, occasionally.
We lost him, once. He turned-up, next day, SIX miles away!! Slow? Tortoises? Naaaa... He used to love having his neck scratched.
How come Yanks don't know the differences between them and turtles? Do they even acknowledge Terrapins?
I thought the Teenage Mutant Nija Turtles were Terrapins that grew and grew just like Topsy.
Heh... I remember reading one of those "What pet is right for you" guides, ages ago. It stated that people who wanted an animal that interacted with
them shouldn't consider a tortoise.
The writer obviously didn't know tortoises.
My daughter says he is a diva. He only comes here for his holidays, thankfully.
Ours made us laugh, when he munched cucumber, coz he used to get bubbles coming from his nose...
It's quite hard to get them to eat the things that are actually good for them. Cucumber has no nutrition, strawberries too much sugar. Sheldon has an obsession with red or white things. He will fight a tomato till he kills it and then ends up looking as if he has lippy on.
