Wonder Pets on the move



The preschool pets live at our house until September. I’ve learned a lot about fish and tortoise care. Not that I particularly wanted that information, but you play the hand you’re dealt. To give the tortoises, Napoleon & Josephine, a little enrichment, I let them wander around the garden whenever possible. I think they like it. No field trips planned for the fish at this point…

  1. Fish don’t love the field trips…especially the trip to the toilet bowl.

    I kid, I kid.

    • Hah! so true. I’m actually quite surprised that the kitties haven’t taken more interest in the fish.

      Funny thing about the tortoises having a field trip.. We were leaving the house for several hours and Brian says, “Hey, what’s Napoleon doing in the driveway?”
      I had forgotten they were outside!
      If he hadn’t noticed Napoleon wandering down the driveway, who knows how far they would have traveled before we got home. 8 hours later.
      Bullet dodged! And I will pay more attention next time… 🙂

  2. Love it! I had a tortoise for a little while as a kid and really enjoyed him.

    • I’ve become rather attached to the tortoises, inexplicably. We certainly don’t need more animals. 2 kids, a dog and 3 kitties are enough. Add 2 tortoises, 3 fish and the occasional random ferret (that’s a different story) or rogue raccoons (a whole other drama) and we’ve got enough to keep us busy.

We'd like to hear from you
