Yesterday was Chemo day for humom, so I made sure to be a good #ESA and get up early to give her silly side eyes, let her watch me climb my log, and of course to give her a big snuggle before she left. She always says it makes the day a million times better. 

Today’s noms were pretty late but I went ahead and gave her a pass since she needed her rest. In the meantime, I made sure I spread all of yesterdays leftover around in fun patterns so she’d have something pretty to look at when she finally got up. I think she really appreciated that part the most. 

Support torting is hard work but someones gotta do it. I guess it will be me. 


This little lady kept me company on a bad pain day today

Are you your humans support tortoise??? I’m one too! *Shell Five*

Here I am working on my ‘hands on support tortoise’ training 

It’s a tough and important job but we’re tough torts! We can handle it! 

Looks like you’re pretty good at your job. Nice to meet you! Please tell your human, that my human, sends a spoonie high five  😀

 Zoya is all dressed up for #MultipleSclerosis awareness week, thanks to @Jeffmusk ’s wig it up Wednesday!

Humom struggles with MS every day. This year, #MS awareness week started with some troubling test results for humom. Good thing Zoya’s got a tortie snuggle treatment plan in place (while the doctors try and do their own thing but we know tortie snuggles are the best treatment of all).  

Zoya also hopes you spread the word about #MultipleSclerosis so we can find a cure and get  humom (and some of our close tortie friends humoms) better! 

What is Multiple Sclerosis? 

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, typically progressive disease involving damage to the sheaths of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, whose symptoms may include numbness, impairment of speech and of muscular coordination, blurred vision, and severe fatigue.

According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the condition affects approximately 400,000 Americans and is, with the exception of trauma, the most frequent cause of neurological disability beginning in early to middle adulthood.

There is no cure for multiple sclerosis. Visit to learn more, find resources, and join the fight for a cure!
