I do believe that I have mentioned it here so many times that my Kroten used to be a shy turtle. She came from a bad petshop where they just let her had shell rot and lost all her nails. Whatever treatment she got there made her kept her distance from me.

Unlike my Kame (may her always sleep in peace) who straight away trusted me and became an attention seeker in within a month…it took over a year for me to touch Kroten without her running away from me.

…and it took 4 years for her to finally realized that I love her so much and trusted me by following me around. She is now as attention seeker as my Kame used to be.

Every morning when we wake up, she follows me everywhere I go and raises her hands wanting to be lifted.

I think this video can tell you more than written words πŸ™‚

Isn’t it lovely to be loved? πŸ™‚

    I learn so much in every one of your posts…To see Kroten reach out for you is wonderful…Thank you so much for sharing this

    What a sweet story! It’s so wonderful that you and Kroten formed such a strong, loving bond because of your love and care. I don’t think I’ve ever known of a turtle who is so devoted to a human – that’s a very special story.

      Thank you Daisy πŸ™‚
      I think the fact that I never treat my turtles as ordinary cold blooded animals is the main reason they can have such bond with me. I am so happy Kroten can be what she is now πŸ™‚

    That was really nice to see. Before starting to read your blog quite a while back, I wouldn’t have thought a turtle would show affection or attachment like that. Very appropriate song for the video, too.

    • Novroz says:

      I do believe it all depends on how the owners treat their turtles. Most turtle owners treat their turtle like a kind of fish…don’t touch just look. Even at redearslider.com, moat people there said the same.

      I am not Kroten’s owner, I am her parent πŸ˜‰ I guess that makes a huge different.
      I often get questions of how to make my turtles like yours…the answer is quite simple, love them!

  4. Hey Kroten, Hey Kurome, Hey Papoe, Jet here. Hi Miss Novroz.

    Oh you are so cute! You have made such progress in trusting your Mom. It took Puffy, *OTRB* 4 years to permit Mom to brush him from head to tail because he had been so badly abused. Kroten, you deserve nothing less than the love you now receive and return. πŸ™‚

    • Kroten says:

      Hey Jet πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much for your kind words. we, abused animals, find it hard to trust human bcause of our past. I know that Mommy will never hurt me and that’s why I trust her.

      Glad to know Puffy can also trust your mom πŸ™‚

    It’s so nice to see that Kroten has finally recognized just how special she is to you and has come to trust you so much. May that love only grow stronger!! πŸ˜‰

    • Novroz says:

      Thank you, Miyuki πŸ™‚
      Her trusting me really makes my heart sings…I love waking up in the morning and having her following me around. I know then my day will be good πŸ˜‰

      Now, I need to teach her to shake hands.

  7. I never knew they could be so loving πŸ™‚ You do such great posts..Thank you xx00xx

      Thank you, Mollie and Alfie πŸ™‚
      I actually learned that turtles can be so warm from Kame…because of her, I believe all turtles can be so loving.

    • Kroten says:

      Hi Dennis πŸ™‚
      Well the problem is, I didn’t have good treatment before I met my mommy and then I started distrusting people altogether. She had to gain my trust bit by bit

    Waiting for my Kog to be attention seeker too! And I guess she need more time than Kroten 😦
