Its my birthday week! How did I celebrate? My friend @wholegrainlofat brought back some cactus pads from LA (they are nice and healthy for russian tortoises) and for my birthday we celebrated by watching Zoya devour this amazing treat!

I was so surprised at her intense reaction. While she obviously acts this excited for tomatos and carrots (tortoise candy), to have her practically bite off our fingers getting into this big ol cactus pad was the best thing ever. Since I am her minion, I figured it was an appropriate way to spend the day. Yeah, thats right, the highlight of my birthday was feeding my tortoise a yummy treat. Shut it. It was awesome. Look at her joy.
