I have been feeding my tortoise mostly kale and Catsear recently with many plants on the side , however I have heard that kale is not the best for tortoises. Please give advice.

I have also been feeding some fluker's tortoise diet with kale Twice a week.
You are correct that kale should not be a staple. Its fine once in a while, but not a lot and not every day. The best foods are an assortment of weeds and leaves. Mulberry leaves, hibiscus or grape leaves,

Please read this for feeding info and many other care tips:
