Day 23: Crunching Clover

When your large shell-less assistant insists on keeping you on the vet-recommended “healthy tort eating plan,” you have to take your opportunities to chow whenever they present themselves.

For instance, perhaps you find yourself out on the lawn one day, along with your assistant and your small, loud, feathery brother.

You are wearing some sort of odd contraption that is neither flattering nor form-fitting.

And every time you get kind of close to anything really interesting and aromatic that you might enjoy sampling, your assistant moves you so you can’t find it anymore.

With all of this going on, you work up quite an appetite.

And that is when you notice a flock of green beings waving placidly in the breeze – as if they were trying to attract your attention!

Malti heads right over to make the acquaintance of one of the placid green beings.

Thankfully, when your assistant catches you noshing yet again, instead of separating you, she starts making an epic movie about your discovery with the small rectangular flashing device.

Score!

Pearl, Malti, Bruce & Shannon

    • She is mostly supposed to eat greens and vegetables with some fruits and just a bit of protein here and there. Because she is such an (ahem) enthusiastic eater, her vet keeps a close watch on her calories!
