This is a repost of my old post at Polychrome Interest. This part of Kame’s gravid moment was published on July 19. 2009.


What happen to Kame now??

I’ve already written that Kame was being gravid in Gravid Kame Part 1 and Gravid Kame Part 2, but I haven’t written her condition afterward.

Well, here it goes….

On July 1, I finally able to trick Kame, I led her to dig on the soil that had already been dug by me. She was so eager in digging. I let her be and to protect her from running away I put a box with lots of small holes on top of her. I watched her once in a while…you know, to make sure she is still under her box.

But…the most horrible thing happened, I almost lost her!!! When I checked her out, she wasn’t inside her box!!

I became so panic…I mean, I can’t lose her like that!! I can’t imagine what she’ll become alone in the wild. I searched everywhere around my house, my mom helped me.

Thanks God I finally spotted her few meters away from my house…I was so glad, I hugged and kissed her. You might think I am crazy for loving a turtle so much…but turtle is just like dog and cat and even children, she is lovable.

On July 6, I was shocked because Kame is Kame again!! She was acting like when she wasn’t being gravid anymore. She slept nicely without waking up in the middle of the night, She would climbed up my feet or leg and rested till she fell asleep. She would look at the opened front door without even wanting to come out. She would go back inside my room when she she feel sleepy. She was swimming calmly in her tank, all her restlessness had gone.

Sleeping on my foot

I was so afraid!! I mean I love seeing her like that again…but I was scared that she had retained her eggs. If she does that, it only meant 1 thing, SHE WOULD DIE SOON!!

I prayed that Kame was just faking her being gravid, I prayed that she would live on. I had prepared my heart for the worst.

Today is July 19, almost 2 weeks after she had become normal again, so far, there’s no sign of her being sick and she looks so healthy…I truly hope she will be okay and of this episode was just her way to gain my attention.

Next part won’t be long, I will share it on January 4, 2013

    Oh dear I can only imagine how scared you were when you couldn’t find Kame…now the mystery…is she OK? is she still gravid? I will be back on 1/4 to learn what happened next

      Hi Gizmo 🙂
      I was really scared…if I didn’t find her soon enough I would have organized my whole family to look for her. I she wasn’t in gravid state, she will return to the house without me worrying…she is too attached to my house, but not at that state.

    Poor kame and novroz but if kame was far then did kame lay her eggs other where. Wa really mysterious job

  3. Loy says:

    I agree, being unable to find your beloved pet is soooooooooooo frightening. And yes, I can believe you really love your turtle. I once had some goldfish…little ‘feeder’ fish… that I became extremely close to. Looking forward to hearing more about Kame. Until then, happy New Year.

    • Novroz says:

      Yeah, it was really frightening…I was so happy she hadn’t gone too far.
      I know how you feel about fish. my dad used to have a Lou Han, and we all loved her so much.
      Happy new Year Loy 🙂

      It was really frightening…I couldn’t imagine losing her like that.
      Thank you Bassetmomma…but we don’t celebrate Christmas. Merry Christmas to you 🙂

    Kame really was testing you! Was she just faking it the whole time? Did she lay her eggs somewhere that you didn’t know? I guess we’ll find out in the conclusion.

    • Novroz says:

      At that time..I know I was having a wishful thought…Turtle can’t fake such thing.
      It was a long process…this repost is far faster than what had happened then

    Kame certainly had her mum worried!! Me too!!

    I’m glad you found her when she ran away, that’s a lot of mischief!!

    Big Wags to all

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    Glad Kame is back to normal again. If she wants eggs for breakfast tell her to get some from the fridge instead.

  8. Donna says:

    Woah! I can’t wait to read the next episode!
    Umm, being normal turtle when they were gravid isn’t “normal”?
