The livingroom will be my chosen place for a stomp today. This first picture doesn’t quite represent my true stature as a majestic stomper so I made mom retake the picture. Much better, now bow to me minions!

Mom is home! She cleaned up our poo, changed our water and took us for clover. Welcome home mom!

Went for a drink at the ol’ watering hole with Mango. We contemplated life and discussed if we like tap water or hose water best. We decided we like smoothies best.

Today was our first morning with dad. He made us tortie food and we felt that it was just as tasty as when mom makes it. Mom is at the art show still and wearing some Lunchbox love. Mom can come home anytime now.

I’m really sad that I’m not with mom in Haliburton this weekend. Friends Steph and Sam brought me toast and homemade jam! Mom is going to save it for me for when she gets home. Thanks Steph and Sam! Big tortie kisses for you!

Mom is gone for the weekend and we couldn’t come because she is camping and it gets cold at night. She told me she misses me and sent this picture she found of our first day together. We’ve hardly been apart ever since.

I may be handsome but that doesn’t mean I can’t be beautiful too.

Hi waffles! I was wondering if you could give me some help. My little russian tort wakes up every morning and proceeds to go to a corner of his table and scratch at it with his claws for hours and hours, even after i've fed him. I don't understand why he's so restless all the time...

Hi friend! It sounds to me like your tortie maybe looking for something he can’t find. I have two ideas so let’s see if that will help.

The first is that I am wondering if your tort is in an aquarium. Glass is tricky for torts because we think we can get to the other side although we can’t but that doesn’t stop us from trying. If that’s the case, put something on the glass so he can’t see out. That should help with him always trying to work his way through.

My other idea is that your tort might be trying to bury or hide. Both me and Mango have our favourite corners to go to. I like to dig into the substrate to make a cozy spot to nap where as Mango prefers to hide when she sleeps. Do you have a substrate that is deep enough to dig in? What about a hide in that corner? Torts love corners and your guy might just need your help to make his corner a little haven. Good luck!

Yesterday it was so hot that we asked to go back inside (this is me showing my lack of pleasure). Today it cooled down so much we won’t be going out at all AND my basking bulb blew. It’s going to be one of those days.
