Mommy made this for me :)

Mommy made this for me πŸ™‚

March sure is a busy month for us πŸ˜‰

We have Kame’s Death anniversary, Papoe’s Gotcha Day and my own Gotcha day πŸ™‚

It’s been five year now…time went fast when you are being loved.

I have written quite a lot last year (read here) there’s nothing much to say not. For our new friends, just a glimpse of my life: I wasn’t being taken care of in the petshop, malnutrition and a bit of shell-rot. Mommy came and took me away from the shop. It wasn’t easy for me to trust her. I always hide when she wanted to touch me (similar case happens to Papoe now). it took more than a year for me to finally trust her.

Now…I am not as attention seeker as Kame used to be, but at least I never ran from her and always looked at her when she calls me…and of course, following her around in the morning before she leaves for work.

There’s a lot of changes in my body. I used to have beautiful golden shell…but I have very slow shedding process and fungus underneath the scute (mommy had tried to get rid of it but the location made it impossible so we are now waiting for my scute to shed)


My face is also not as shiny as it used to be…maybe it is part of going old πŸ˜‰


Plus I gain weight every year….I think that is part of being happy (I used to be a skinny turtle and now I am happy and slowly become plump)


Anyway…no matter what, I know Mommy will always love me πŸ™‚

Looking forward to see more Gotcha Day in the future πŸ™‚
