You can find out what happened if you check my last post, but it was really late and most of the lines we rung were closed, my family were arguing and wouldn't help me find something, I went down early in the morning to check on her and she was just in the exact same space, and when I checked she was dead, she hasn't shut down, her eyes are wide open, and I had her in my hand for an hour straight. I couldn't stop crying, I'm still tearful right now, she was a beautiful tortoise, it was a shame she died so young, and I want to tell you all that you should never buy from shops, it was a big mistake I made, the tortoise was ill from the year we got her, but we thought it was a mild condition and waved it away, it's really a pity for her to be taken from Greece just to suffer here with an illness that could kill in a matter of a few hours. It was very sudden, the symptoms showed a few hours before she passed away.

Will always be in our hearts.

Thank you all so much. It's been a hard day, I keep welling up at the thought of her. It's hard to convince myself she's really gone. Rest in peace.
