subverted:

The tired tortoise took time to traverse the terrain totally twice today, Thursday, tasting the turf thoroughly.

With less alliteration: this guy explored the whole yard at least twice today tasting as he went haha. I had no idea these torts could be so active!

All the alliteration makes it art. 😉

Perfect spot for naps!I even get Mommy's lamp keeping my bum warm!All stretched out and relaxed!Hey!  You with the camera, do you have noms for me?No noms means back to nap time!I am bigger than those USB ports, despite what this photo suggests.Best nap spot ever, after Mommy's hand!

I found a new nap spot on Mommy’s desk! Mommy’s USB hub is warm and cozy, plus Mommy’s lamp keeps my bum warm. Best of all, I can actually fit under the USB hub, unlike Mommy’s laptop!

Kirby you are so smart. Have you considered becoming a tortie FengShui consultant?

Such pretty curves on this stapler!This is now the cutest stapler in the world!This stapler is just the right size for me to relax on top of it!No noms down there either...I like this stapler so much that I am going to take a nap on it!Tape dispensers are funny.Ugh!  This tape is STICKY!A desk calendar!!No pictures and no colors?!  Boring!!

After inspecting the turtles on Mommy’s desk on Friday, I inspected the other things on her desk, took a nap on her stapler, and helped Mommy flip the page on her desk calendar. Mommy got this year’s desk calendar from a White Elephant back in December. It is way inferior to our Disney one in 2013: Not only are there no pictures of Beauty and the Beast, but also there are no pictures at all!

Kirby makes everything better!!

Please! Send all your good thoughts and shell strength to Kirby!! 

Zoya and humom, are SO excited to read you gave your mama a glance, Kirby!! And boy are those neck rubs the best medicine. We know, especially humom, how scary it is when your shell baby is sick. Zoya has been super worried about Kirby too and we’ve shut our eyes and sent all the good thoughts we could muster (and an extracurricular poopie from Zoya) your way! 

Keep getting better Kirby! The #Turtpocalypse is depending on you. Zoya says she likes having you and waffles and mango as her tortie brothers and so you have to keep your strength up! there are shenanigans to be had!

Keep us updated! We love you Kirby and Whimsy! <3

Good news: I opened both my eyes halfway for a few minutes after today’s baby food soak! I even deigned to look at the dandelion leaf Mommy gave me. I’m still not eating, but Mommy is hopeful that I will be back to normal soon. I’m also getting even feistier in my soaks—I know they’re good for me, but that doesn’t mean I have to like them! Still, Mommy says if I’m not eating by Tuesday, I am going to the vet.

After a few minutes, I stretched out my neck as far as I could and demanded neck rubs from Mommy. The nice thing about getting sick is I get lots and lots of cuddles with Mommy!

Good mor—zzzzzzz…..

yep, humom did this same thing today! She seemed all proud when she got up early and then zzzzzz. When she woke up again she got in trouble for missing her MRI. I didn’t think it was a big deal, cause she still brought me noms at a reasonable hour.  Humans are so weird about schedules and things. #AllThatMattersIsNoms

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
