Mrs. Turtle

Today my husband was mowing the yard, and he came across a rock.  At least he thought it was a rock, until it started to move. It was a box turtle, moving as quick as a turtle can to get away from the mower.  He picked it up and brought it inside so we could show it to our son.

We stuck it in a plastic tub and gave it a carrot and a piece of celery in case it got hungry.  (I tried giving it a bug, but it wasn’t interested. lol)  I went on with my business, and after a while I looked over and our cat Nora was staring at it very intently.  She was enthralled. Ignore my boxes of fabric, I was sewing this weekend and haven’t put them back yet.  😉  She was very sweet and never tried to bite us.  She liked to hide under the towel in the tub.

Once our son got home and had a chance to look at the turtle, we put her back where she was found so she could go home.  She stood there for a few seconds, then she took off, obviously heading for a specific place.  She knew where she was going, and she was in a hurry to get there.

It was nice to meet you Mrs. Turtle!  Have a great life!!
