    Oh thank goodness. I've mopped it three times already. I'm so worried about her. Thanks.

    Bug bomb

    She doesn't have run of the house...just the dining. room /kitchen. Mopping the tile floor isn't enough? Generally she just walks from the slider to her box to go to sleep and then her box to the slider to go out...

    Bug bomb

    Okay... but this presents a plethora of problems. I know this house has been bug bombed many times before I lived here. Shirley has been living with me for years. I may have done before while she's been with me. And she hibernates annually in a guest room. I live on Central California. It's...

    Shirley and I joined the forum in mid-April. Our introduction was here: https://www.tortoiseforum.org/threads/say-hello-to-shirley.181341/ if you want to review our background. Shirley has not been herself lately. She usually spends her days roaming around the backyard or climbing through her...

    Unsure of breed

    Hi. Welcome to the board. I'm new here as well. I'm sure someone will be along who can answer your questions. Yours looks kind of like mine---and she has also been in the family for about 40 years. Mine is apparently a California Desert Tortoise...but I'll let someone else with more knowledge...
