    Lady Hermann not her usual self

    Greetings O Beautiful TezTez and devoted Ruth -I will get my dad to take a photo of me in my travelling basket - it is very much like a picnic basket really, but made with no colouring, preservatives etc, by a lady who lives in a village near here called Sheepwash, which I think is a great name...

    COLD DARK ROOM

    Wow, that is amazingly impressive !!! Perhaps you could use it to sing at anyone who annoyed you - they might think it was a terrible curse, and keep well away from you in the future !

    COLD DARK ROOM

    Please be careful about taking aspirin without food, Yvonne - they can seriously damage the lining of your stomach - perhaps there is an alternative you could have? I don't know what is available in the USA - here in the UK there is paracetamol. You are precious to a lot of people - and...

    Lady Hermann not her usual self

    I wonder if you are still in your bath, Your Ladyship .Do you have any bath toys? I have a yellow plastic duck, but I don't really play with it much now.I'm glad you liked my photo, but I must admit it was taken earlier this year. It was by a reservoir on Dartmoor, and the farmer was moving the...

    Misinformation that needs to be countered:

    I'm sure Nibbles comes over to you for much more than food (though of course that helps) -he sees you as a very important part of his life - and knows that he is safe and comfortable with you always.Your company gives him pleasure in lots of ways, so of course he wants to be with you. Angie

    If my tortoise naps on me is that a sign of trust?

    That's lovely. I certainly think it is a really good thing to encourage your tortoise to accept and enjoy human contact - not just tolerate it to get food. Not all tortoises will put up with it- I know a lady who hatched a sulcata baby, and although she really loved it, the tortoise seemed to...

    Lady Hermann not her usual self

    There is a lot of rock climbing done around here, as there are some pretty dramatic cliffs, and classes in climbing and abseiling even for school groups, so I think Zola must have sneaked out somehow to join in ! Angie

    I'm glad you like it - but we don't want Zola to be "famous" and have him all over Facebook or Instagram -he is quite a private person really, as are we, but it is nice to give people who appreciate him the chance to see some of his many talents. Angie

    Lady Hermann not her usual self

    Humble greetings to your ladyship and to your devoted carer. It was, as always, delightful to hear from you. I am sure the children at the nursery wold love to meet you, though if you have to wear a mask, I can't imagine where you would fix it. I meet a lot of children when I go out with my dad...

    Impaction advice please!

    Hello Tayla - it was lovely to see Norman's photo - he looks a very determined little chap - and I am so glad he is making so much progress. You will see lots of changes in him over the next year or two, as he grows - Zola was very small and not well when we got him,with a split in his shell-...

    Lady Hermann not her usual self

    Greetings to your ladyship from your humble admirer (well, two admirers if you include my mum) -thank you for your compliments on my looks. When I go out with my dad to the sea, we almost always meet people who say how beautiful I am, and often exclaim "Oh, I love him !" However I am a modest...

    If my tortoise naps on me is that a sign of trust?

    There is that, of course ! I usually put a pad of paper towels between us in the critical place - today ,for instance, we had a loud thunderstorm, and he didn't like it at all - I held him, and he soon calmed down -and he calmed me down too! Angie

    If my tortoise naps on me is that a sign of trust?

    I think he definitely trusts you, which is a great thing - do go on handling him - gently, with respect, and eventually also stroking his legs and head. As well as being a very enjoyable experience for you both, it will make things a lot easier if you ever have to take him to a vet, for...

    Lady Hermann not her usual self

    Hello your ladyship - I apologise deeply for not communicating for some time, and hope you have not taken offence. My mum has been struggling with very bad headaches, and the usual treatments she was having in the hospital were stopped because of Covid - however she is back on them now, but it...

    Carnivorous behaviour in a greek tortoise

    I think the real problem would be if the rat had ingested rat poison, which wouldn't be very good for your tortoise or your cat. Angie

    Lady Hermann not her usual self

    Hello again your supreme Ladyship and your noble assistant (I was going to say servant, but that seemed a bit rude) I am glad you like the photos. I am full of admiration for your bravery and sense of adventure, but it is a little unwise to risk your life on a road.Speaking as one who has all...
