Ha Ha! I get the joke. It would be very funny to leave a turtle on the Lee’s doorstep. Because they just got a rabbit. And there’s that whole “Tortoise and the Hare” thing.
But seriously, two new pets in one week might be too many for this momma to handle.
And then there’s Owlie. The little man is going to have a major fit when he realizes there is not just a bunny but also a turtle out back. He will demand to be outside with the animals twenty-four-seven. Think of his safety. Don’t you know it’s going to be in the 100’s today and tomorrow? This turtle needs to be resting in the shadows of a cool creek somewhere – not roasting on my back deck in a badly made turtle habitat.
So, dear stranger, it’s time to reveal yourself by breaking RedDog’s heart and coming to claim your turtle. I’ll be waiting for you inside where there is A/C while I google “what to feed a turtle”.
Ever so fondly,
Ps. Turtle names anyone?
