So sorry to give you this sudden bad news…we were so devastated here…it all  came so suddenly, I wished I could tell her why she died…but I couldn’t speak.

Mommy came home today just to find my sister had laid unmoving on the bottom of our shared tank.

She was so shocked to find her loved one not welcoming her home.

My sweet sweet sister…why did you go so fast?

Mommy cried a lot and finally able to control herself and made a box to lay Kame inside and put her into her final resting place.

I couldn’t write anything else….you just need to read Mommy’s post to know how broken hearted she is now.

Good bye Kame….I will take care of mommy from now on….and I will keep posting your photos that haven’t been published yet

  3. oh no, I am so very very sorry for your loss! Kame went peacefully…. and because of you had such a wonderful life.
    Having just lost Madison, I know the emptiness it leaves behind. Many purrs from us, xoxo

    • Novroz says:

      Thank you Lisa. I keep hoping she pushes her head out of the box…but it never happen 😦 She’ll be buried tomorrow.

    Oh no, I’m so very very sorry. I am crying with you all right now. I have grown to love Kame to very much. Kroten, I know you miss your sister and your mommy is hurting very badly right now. Try to be a very good girl for her to help her get strong and feel happy again one day.
    To Mommy Novroz,
    Please except my deepest condolence. I will be thinking of you daily and prayer for you to have a strong heart again. Please take care of Kroten…she needs you more than ever now.

    Love and Hugs to you and your mommy..
    Aunt Deb xo

    • Kroten says:

      I know Aunt Deb, everyone would love Kame because she was so sweet. I will try to be as cute as possible but I know I will never be like her or take her place

    • Novroz says:

      Thank you so much Deb.
      I am happy that everyone who knows her is missing her.
      I wish I can get over this grief soon…but everytime I remember the way she looked at me, the way she waved her hand asking to be held, and all other small things she did….I can’t stop my tear from falling again. Ow how I love her so much Deb

      • Deb says:

        I know you are hurting. I remember what it feels like to have lost a pet….the pain is unreal…like loosing a child, but worse. You just allow yourself to feel all the feelings that come when you think of Kame, even if it makes you cry….she was your little baby and you loved her very much. I was so very sad for your heart when I read this news, and cried for both of us. You please be good to yourself and love kroten as much as you can. And Kame will always hold a special place in your heart forever.
        I love you,
        Hugs, xx

        You don’t have to try to take Kame’s place. You just be you and you will see that your moma has loved you just as much all along, but just didn’t realize it. You are and adorable turtle with a wonderful character…I love you as much as Kame, sweetie. You deserve all the love in the world and your mommy is going to give that to you. You just need to give mommy time to process all these feelings she is having.
        I love you, Kroten!
        Aunty Deb,
        Hugs and kisses

      • Kroten says:

        Thank you Aunt Deb 🙂 Mommy has been kind to me. I know she loves me too because I am my own personality…I can always make her laugh with my naughtiness and my attention at her.

        I will still be myself and still be loved as much as Kame by her.

        Thank you so much Aunt Deb…you have been very kind to us *kisses and hugs*

  6. I feel VERY sad for you all! It’s especially hard because it came so sudden without any illness or other signs. You hang in there Kroten and take good care of your mommy, just as she will for you!

  7. Cici says:

    I’m so very sorry, Kroten that you lost your sister. I liked Kame a lot…she was very nice, and nice to me. My mommy is very sad and crying about Kame. She don’t want you and your mommy to hurt. You take care of you mommy, and your mommy to take good care of you.

    Doggie Hugs,

    • Kroten says:

      Thank you Cici…that’s very nice of you. Kame was indeed the sweetest out of both of us. She was the spoilt one. I know that there will be no other turtle like her. Thank you for being here when we need a lot of support

  8. Wazeau says:

    oh dear, I am so sorry to hear this sad news.

  9. Catcalls says:

    Oh Novroz! I am shocked! I can’t believe it. How very sad. I’ll be thinking of you and praying. Big hugs.

  10. Binky says:

    I am so sorry to hear this, Novroz. I’ve grown to really love both Kame and Kroten, as probably most readers of your blog have.

    Even though I’ve never met them personally, I really feel that I know both of them quite well. Their different personalities, the funny things they do, how they interact with you and each other. It has been a lot of fun to follow them through your pictures and writing. This is very, very sad. I’m sure it must be very difficult for you and Kroten.

    • Novroz says:

      It is indeed very hard Peter. Whenever I remembered her, I cried. You know that I have just lost my mom…and losing Kame has the same feeling of hurt. She was like a child to me.

      But, as everyone told me…time will heal my pain and I will only remember the good things about her…I sure hope it will be the case for me too.
      I hope soon I can remember her and smile over the memory not like now, I remember her and cry because she is gone.

  12. Caroline says:

    Poor Kroten. It is unbearably sad.

  13. Donna says:

    OH NO! She looked well in the moving photo. Is she… um… stressed?
    Well, Let’s pray for him. Be tough for you and mommy. And don’t get stressed, Kroten, or else you’ll break… your momma’s heart.

    Rest In Piece Kame….

  15. Pkitass says:

    Aww I’m so sorry for your loss 😦
    I hope it wasn’t the stress from the move

  16. EeePt says:

    OMG I came across your youtube vid “Reason For Loving Kame” only last week and was absolutely inspired and had bookmarked your blog. It’s too sudden. Feel really sad and sorry for your loss =(

    • Novroz says:

      Hi eeept, thank you for bookmarking my babies blog.
      I will keep sharing her photos here eventhough she is no longer with me now but her memory is still in my heart everyday

  17. Tony McGurk says:

    OH NO!!!! That is such sad news. I feel a though I’ve just lost a special little friend. So sorry to hear this sad news. Big hugs from all of us here. My eyes are getting all teary now. She will be sadly missed by bloggers the world over.

  18. Cassie says:

    I didn’t get the chance to get to know Kame being new to the family, but I know I would have really liked her….I’m so sorry for your loss.

    • Kroten says:

      Hi Cassie…I know you will love her like everyone else. She was the best and nicest sister I ever have. I love sleeping together with her.

  19. […] been 3 days since Kame passed away (here)…I can finally feel a bit strength in my heart…and because of that, I can share this […]

  20. Kroten, it touched my heart that your mommy thought of us enough to write me a personal email about Kame’s passing…and, at the same time, it also broke my heart to learn about the news. Although we’re miles apart and we communicate via cyber space, we are able to sense your loss. Kame was a special little member of the animal kingdom, but she is now in a better place where all animals can live peacefully and with boundless freedom.

  21. Samuel says:

    Do you know why Kame died?

  22. Kas says:

    So very sorry to read this. Rest in Peace, sweet Kame, and hugs to you. We are thinking of you all!

  23. Goodbye Kame.
    I have been busy with my new kid. Mommy calls her the Grandson. It has been so fun to have a kid to play with that I have neglected my blogging and my anipals.
    Swim free Kame, swim free.

    Kroten, you must take the lead and help the new addition to the family. And you must be strong and help your Mommy. My heart goes out to you and your Mommy to have such a loss.

    Head bowed in respect for a friend. Lucy

    • Kroten says:

      Thank you Lucy ((hug)) It was such great loss, Mommy was devastated…I am glad to see smile on my mommy’s face now. She has get over it but will never forget her….So will I.

      Ow…how wonderful!!! you have a baby, must be really fun. I have a new brother..but mommy still keeps him away from me because he is sooo small.

  25. Tanvi says:

    I feel so sorry for you. Just as I saw those pictures I lost a heartbeat. Kame, as you rest in peace remember your lovely mommy who has loved you with all her heart . I hope terra and pin (my turtles) will see you as a role model.
