Lol. That sounds like he's feeling like king of the castle haha. He knocked over your cactus? Maybe he's looking for dirt. He used to kick the cococoir all over his back. I hope he's not too much trouble and I hope you fall in love with him Harley's eating great!!! I expect to see weight increase soonHe's made himself right at home. He eats soon as I place the food down. He has already knocked over the plants and messed up the enclosure.
And I think God blessed you by having your fence repaired for all the good you do. Enjoy a little reward yvonne!Lol. That sounds like he's feeling like king of the castle haha.

I think that's a Hooded Oriole not a warbler
Yeah Stache has some jealousy issues with Franklin hahah, their first encounter may have consisted of me holding the tortoise chasing the cat around because he was afraid after he sniffed him and Franklin sucked into his shell and blew air at him hahahaThe cat is giving the tortoise the stink eye.
You're right. Very anticlimactic.Well, it wasn't much of a write-up. The found tortoise follow-up story was part of the Bee's editorial today:

BY THE EDITORIAL BOARD
Thumbs up to Yvonne Gomez of Clovis for searching out the family of a California desert tortoise, Elmo, after years missing from his owners. We now know that Elmo escaped from his back yard when a gate was inadvertently left open. He was discovered last year between Reedley and Dinuba by some folks who cared for him. Last August, however, they took him to Gomez’s Turtle and Tortoise Rescue in Clovis when they moved out of the area.
Gomez thought she wouldn’t be able to track down his original family. Then she decided to write a letter to the editor in The Bee. It worked! Her first phone call the day it appeared in the newspaper was from the Marshall family. Jason and Sandy described Elmo perfectly, right down to the fiberglass patch on his shell. (The story goes that the patch was created to heal an injury when a previous owner accidentally ran over him with a lawnmower.) All is well now, and the family is happily reunited.

They didn't get it exactly right, as I received the tortoise only last week, not last August.
