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!!
