Turtle





Here are Turtle's before and after pictures of his shave.  Turtle had a persistent case of ringworm and had to be completely shaved to get rid of it.  Hopefully, it is all gone now and won't come back.  Turtle lives with Pippin, another orange kitty, and Pickles, a tuxie kitten.  Pippin and Turtle took some time go get used to having a kitten running around the house, but they all get along fine now.  Turtle is a pretty happy cat, but he does have one pet peeve.  He really hates it when he sees an intruder cat in his yard.  He hates it so much that he has been known to bite the people in the house to express his displeasure.  Turtle will lie on the floor and play on the floor, but when it comes time to nap, he has to get up higher.  You will never catch him sleeping on the floor.

                                    Turtle had to go in for a shaving
                                    Because his ouchies were misbehaving.
                                                   Now they've gone away
                                                   And I hope they stay
                                   Far away from Turtle with their misbehaving.

Poor turtle. He looks very regal in the first photo, and very unhappy in the second. What a great limerick.

Yeah, poor ol' Turtle! He could pretend that he's a lion with mane, though, when he got his body furs shaved off.

Turtle kinda reminds me of Brainball! He sounds like a kool cat, and Brainball sometimes gets fussy about kitties outdoors, too -- but mostly just growls at the window.

That's a superduper limmerick fur Turtle!
