My dear sweet Chug has died in brumation.

I have no clue what happened. The weather here has not been cooperative, so I set up a temporary enclosure for him inside. The plan was to keep him in for a week or two until it was warmer outside.

I turned off his fridge last evening to let him start to warm up. I did not touch him. This morning I took his bin out of his fridge, and he was dead, very stiff, eyes deeply sunken in.

In the past 8 months, I have lost 5 people I loved, starting with my husband and ending with my best friend. Now my tortoise, who was with me for almost 3 years. There are no words to describe how I'm feeling.

You've been handed an awful lot to have to deal with. . . a very, very hard test for you. I'm so sorry this is going on for you. Having lost my son, then five months later my husband, I understand. Keep the faith.
