5 Years ago the poor wee man had to have a feeding tube fitted to save his life.

It was very stressful. It took a lot of time and effort to get him healthy. Then lots more time hand feeding, to get him weaned off the feeding tube.

Having to hand feed him for the rest of his life was a real possibility but this year we have turned a corner.

He finally eats!!! He tastes everything he comes into contact with and no longer needs hand fed. He has just had his check up with Doug the vet and he is no longer underweight.

Its been a long hard journey, but worth ever second. We now have happy healthy Harry.

You human, are a hero. And you sir shell are amazing. This is the best sort of tortie-story to share because all involved deserve a big trophy made of either yummy dandelions or yummy ice cream <3
