At first, he would only eat a worm...

    Jacky And Daisy

    Hello Natrah - I agree entirely with Edward that Jacky should eat whatever she likes - you are the person who knows her best, and it is for you to judge. You are obviously not going to give her anything silly, like pickled onions or chocolate icecream, after all ! I am not on facebook at all...

    Dear Natrah - I hope you've had a good day. Zola went out for his walk on the breakwater this afternoon, and met a South African lady, who asked if she could hold him. Zola enjoyed it so much he gave her a little present !!! She was very nice about it, and said she had a little baby, and was...

    Jacky And Daisy

    Dear Natrah - I always look for your emails and photos, and I don't think I ever miss them, so don't worry about that. I did something wrong when trying to send the swallows photo earlier, but you should see it if you click on the previous message. Here, anyway, is another similar photo, taken a...

    The swallows are able to stand up in their nest now, and look bigger every day - they are louder too ! Richard has been trying to feed a baby robin who comes to stand by him when he opens the back door, but an adult robin keeps chasing the little chap away. Angie xxxxxx

    Dear Edward- I think you are going to have a very interesting and happy life with your servant.

    Dear Edward - my mum is very happy that we share your servant's birthday. Does she has a name we could use when we sing Happy Birthday to her on our special day?. If not, never mind - we can sing Happy Birthday Dear Servant . Is she older than me? I bet she isn't as old as my mum !!! Love from...

    Jacky And Daisy

    Dear Edward - I think it quite shocking that your servant had no food for you -naturally you expected some reward. I think I have got my parents well trained after all these years, on the whole - my mum often claims she knows exactly what I am thinking - she is right a lot of the time, too ! I...

    Unfortunately not yet -the consent form I signed and sent didn't arrive, and I eventually emailed the hospital headache team,and got it sorted out - so the nurse has to send my prescription to the hospital pharmacist - it may take weeks, or maybe a few days -the pharmacist will then ring me, and...

    Jacky And Daisy

    I was pretty tired when I got back from a very long walk -I really like the rocks, though, as they are a lot more interesting than a path - i love climbing on things ! My dad always stays near me, though, because of dogs. There were no dogs today, but two groups of schoolchildren, who were...

    Do you mean that he has a red light on during the night ? If so, that may be part of his problem, as tortoises need darkness at night. Angie

    Jacky And Daisy

    Dear Edward - I go out a lot with my mum and dad, and we often meet people who want to know more about tortoises - I think there are still many people who assume we are just moving garden ornaments ! They are amazed when they see me and hear about my life. In fact, it is sunny now, and dad is...

    DearJacky - my mum come to my box each night before she goes to bed and she rubs the top of my shell gently - she says goodnight with me to you and Natrah and Angel Daisy, and also to some of my other friends here on the forum, and to several human friends that we care about. Then I go back to...
