Tortoise Tuesday

It's tough being a tortoise in the subarctic, but Tessie has adapted well. She has also adapted to living with us felines, and here you can see how.
Jura has a quick check that she is okay and can climg into the Pillar of Power (lower tier only of course).
Outdoors is now too cold for her but it is is still quite light so Tessie gets a warm lamp and lettuce still. She is, however, looking around for her place for her winter sleep. She gets restless and paces around, looking for somewhere suitable for her for the next 6 months!  That's one long snooze.

That girl has some great taste in real estate! Hee-hee.
Can't believe she's shopping around for a place to bed down and we're still sweating like crazy. It was 90 degrees (F) today!

I think we sleep as long as Tessie does but we spread it out more. Heeheeheee.

My human says she could not possibly sleep for that long and not be able to go online! She certainly thinks weird things.

Höhö. Hope she doesn't choose the Pillar of Power!

It looks like Tessie may have found the favoured spot for her long sleep!

Hey PPP.

We have same kind of pillar... So, could Tessie move to us. Boys already promise me that idea is ok. I love Tessie, she is cute and eat same stuff like my servant. So, what You think?

P.S. I have not told anything to servant - yet.

The lower Pillar of Power sounds good, but Tessie will maybe find a better place with Äiti's help ? Purrs

We think that spot looks good and the kitties can keep Tessie warm during her hibernation :)

Of course Tessie would adapt well. She's got the original tortoi- tude. We love seeing her. Tell her she has lots of fans.
