So about a month ago my Grandma ( who will be hence forth refered to as Nanny ) said I could have her Red Eared Sliders - my uncle got them for my cousin about five or six years ago, and she doesn’t really want them anymore. In a sense, I can understand why: shes thirteen, has a life and quite frankly just didn’t know how much effort it took to take care of them. Needless to say, she kind of stopped, and Nanny can’t really handle all the work by herself, which lead to me getting them! I can’t take them home yet, as I still live with my parents ( and won’t have my studio for AT LEAST another six months. Ugh ), but I’m over here every weekend to change the water, wax their shells - I’ve grown super attatched. Their names are Sheldon, who is the smaller one and most likely the male, and Shelly, who is A TOTAL BITCH on top of being the female and the larger one ( we know shes def a lady because shes a bitch AND she laid eggs a while back).
I’ve always loved reptiles and amphibians, and since I can’t have a pet frog or snake, turtles are they next best thing - PLUS THEIR SO CUTE MY GOD AND SHELLY HISSED AT ME AS I WAS WAXING HER YESTERDAY IT WAS SO CUTE AND SHELDON IS LIKE A HUGE PANSY THE POOR GUY IS ALWAYD BEING PUSHED AROUND so cute. Anyway, I figured I’d make an update before I totally spammed evoryone with turtles from now on.
