Alfred attempts to escape.

I love how we tort and turt humans have that mix of awe and nervousness as we watch our shell babies get into all sorts of trouble. “My baby can do anything…oh god.. MY BABY CAN DO ANYTHING!ACK!”

Two weeks ago, Tort-Time sent us a package of AWESOME! Zoya and her humom sent us a lovely card, a Tort-Time pin, a chocolate to distract our human, and lots of Turtpocalypse gear! Humans of the world, watch out: The Turtpocalypse is coming!

Best of all, Kirby and I both got monogrammed super-tortle capes!! My cape makes me feel safe and lets me survey my kingdom in cozy secrecy. Kirby hasn’t quite figured out how to wear his properly, but he can now escape from his bath in style!

Look at those two sporting their supershell capes! *Melts*

Lunch box and Kirby, a fine example of the two sides of the Turtpocalypse… the quiet but fierce side eye and the all systems go trouble on the move approach. Different methods, same goal…. reminding you who is really in charge <3

I am getting closer to escaping from my bath!

Kirby claims he’s just trying to look out the window, but it seems his human is not buying that story. Something about mumbling ‘I will be free’ while climbing. 😉

Zoya says you should come visit once you’re free, Kirby.  (human here is sorry Zoya is such an instigator).

Are you kidding? Diagnosis me with another chronic illness & I’ll tough it out (ish)…but if Zoya went missing? I’d be hysterical.

It’s not everyday a tortoise goes missing from its home, that is, a 70-year-old, 155 pound tortoise.

But that’s exactly what happened to a beloved family pet named Tortellini, an African Sulcata tortoise, owned by Elexis Hays and her family.

On Thursday night (Aug. 16) Tortellini wandered off from the wildlife rehabilitation farm he calls home located in the Matt Highway area of northwest Forsyth County.

The good news is that the giant tortoise was spotted in a neighborhood near the Hays’ farm and was returned safely on Sunday afternoon.

“I’m not a sissy girl, but I cried like a big ol’ baby when I got him back,” said Hays.

She and her family have been rescuing wildlife creatures like fawns, deer, groundhogs and squirrels, and other non-indigenous animals for years.
