Hey all! This is Armstrong. Could he be cuter? Not really. He’s a fighter thats for sure.  

He has been making his way despite a serious right arm issue that desperately needs treatment. He and his human are living in the Phoenix, AZ area and could really use some help!

I’ve sent out some emails to see if anyone knows a vet or rescue that might help and am still waiting for responses.  Maybe you know somewhere  or someone too!? 

Take a minute to read more about Armstrong below. Visit his website and, if you can,  make a donation to help him get the care he needs. If you know a vet or rescue that might be able to help let us know! 

Armstrong is growing by the minute, and as he grows this issue will grow with him. Spread the word, send some love, a donation, or information if you can. 

High five Armstrong, you’re quite the inspiring shell.

This is Armstrong.

He’s about a week old. A baby sulcata tortoise. He’s adorable, tiny, energetic, outgoing, fast and strong. 

All this despite his injured front right arm. Whether his shoulder is dislocated or his humerus is separated from his scapula, something is wrong. 

I need to take him to the vet this week to find out just what is going on, and how to fix it. The problem is, of course, money. The vet tech I talked to today said that the vet is generally really good about working out something to help in tight financial spots, but I won’t know exactly what that means until I bring him in. And not bringing him in is not an option. 

If you are able to help Armstrong, or if you know anyone who might be, please contact me and pass this along. He’s just a week old and he needs all the help he can get to make sure he gets a real chance at a long, healthy, happy life.

Me and mom were going through some older photos today and found this picture of our first trip together. I was about 3 months old and not quite used to my travel bin yet. The road felt bumpy and I didn’t feel safe on my own. Mom saw I was upset so she put me on my favourite place to cuddle at home, her shoulder. I fell right asleep and stayed there for three hours. I’m fine in my travel bin now and usually nap for our drives in my hidey hut.

ITS TINY BABY WAFFLE! <3 <3 I can’t even! 

Zoya likes my shoulder too, but now she’s too big to sit there like that. She’ll generally lay her head on my shoulder and balance the rest of herself on my boob haha.

BIG thanks to everyone who took the time to vote for Zoya and I! We won! Even more exciting, people are talking about non traditional therapy pets. Among the winners there were two tortoises! How cool is that? Also an awesome bunny and a kitty that looks like it just might have the side eye down pat. Very exciting!

Thank you thank you thank you! <3

After seeing Child Thief on the floor, Ptolmey makes some assumptions about its content. Testing these assumptions with the human shoe, he concludes that ‘Child Thief’ lacks external validity. Shoes are too heavy for child tortoises.

This is how my room looks on any given day.

Ptolmey adventuring, books and shoes strewn about, trash, gum packets, clothes, Loki paraphernalia. It’s bliss, being me, honestly.
