It’s a very very sad day for me. We moved into our new house on Saturday, and I finally got a chance to set up Rocky’s outdoor home. Unfortunately I broke a piece of the plexiglass window that I use for my kids to see in without actually reaching in and disturbing him... and I totally forgot to cover it up with the wire mesh I had before I put him back in... well obviously he escaped. I have search both my yard and one of my neighbors yards and no luck :(.

We are in Fort Worth Texas. I’m still holding hope that I’ll be able to find him. My kids are so sad. This phone unfortunately doesn’t have good photos of him, but I have some on my profile

Check early in the morning. Craigslist. Put up fliers (old school). Remember those guys can book it.

Oh he totally can! He is the opposite of a slow turtle! This guys can RUN, so we always make sure to never let him roam.

I know he wakes up at 7:30am everyday for his breakfast. He is extremely punctual.
