Yesterday was Chemo day for humom, so I made sure to be a good #ESA and get up early to give her silly side eyes, let her watch me climb my log, and of course to give her a big snuggle before she left. She always says it makes the day a million times better. 

Today’s noms were pretty late but I went ahead and gave her a pass since she needed her rest. In the meantime, I made sure I spread all of yesterdays leftover around in fun patterns so she’d have something pretty to look at when she finally got up. I think she really appreciated that part the most. 

Support torting is hard work but someones gotta do it. I guess it will be me.

This little lady kept me company on a bad pain day today

Are you your humans support tortoise??? I’m one too! *Shell Five*

Here I am working on my ‘hands on support tortoise’ training 

It’s a tough and important job but we’re tough torts! We can handle it! 

Looks like you’re pretty good at your job. Nice to meet you! Please tell your human, that my human, sends a spoonie high five  😀

When Humom came home from her first chemo treatment on Monday, I was sure to be on my best support tortoise behavior.  

First, I examined the owie the doctors left on humom’s arm ( the doctors made easy to find by covering it in nom colored material). After examining it for any hidden noms the docs might have accidentally used, and making sure it looked secure, I decided it best to kiss it and make it better. 

I climbed around a bit to make sure nothing else needed an extra snuggle and noticed that humom looked pretty tired. I had also had a long day of basking and noming while she was gone, so I climbed up and nuzzled into her shoulder to take a nap. We had a good snuggle and nap till humom woke up and pointed that square thingie she types into all the time at us. It made a snappy noise that I usually hear during my pet star photo shoots. I tried to glare at it, but I was still pretty tired so it wasn’t my best side eye. Either way it was ok cause I think I made humom feel better and that’s what matters 🙂

Let Perseverance Be Your Engine And Hope Your Fuel!

lets just re-caption this a little: Let tortoises be your engine and their amazingness be your fuel. 

thats way better.

 Zoya is all dressed up for #MultipleSclerosis awareness week, thanks to @Jeffmusk ’s wig it up Wednesday!

Humom struggles with MS every day. This year, #MS awareness week started with some troubling test results for humom. Good thing Zoya’s got a tortie snuggle treatment plan in place (while the doctors try and do their own thing but we know tortie snuggles are the best treatment of all).  

Zoya also hopes you spread the word about #MultipleSclerosis so we can find a cure and get  humom (and some of our close tortie friends humoms) better! 

What is Multiple Sclerosis? 

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, typically progressive disease involving damage to the sheaths of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, whose symptoms may include numbness, impairment of speech and of muscular coordination, blurred vision, and severe fatigue.

According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the condition affects approximately 400,000 Americans and is, with the exception of trauma, the most frequent cause of neurological disability beginning in early to middle adulthood.

There is no cure for multiple sclerosis. Visit http://www.nationalmssociety.org/ to learn more, find resources, and join the fight for a cure! 

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
