I've never met a tortoise before, what a revelation they are!
They are just so different from us cats and dogs. True they can move fast like we can, proportionally to size I mean, but there's so many other differences. They eat things such as lettuce which to be honest just stuck to the back of my throat when I attempt to scoff a bit that fell to the floor once and they don't do or say much, in fact River said Nadia hardly ever speaks.
I'm going to make it my mission to engage her in conversation, I'm going to attempt it when we are alone, see if I can tease it out of her without the distractions of River getting herself involved which by the look of it isn't going to be too long she's spotted something going on out the back. Go on River go see what it is!
