It’s pretty obvious that my mom was fond of torties ‘cause she had three of us! And despite what you might have heard about standoffish “tortitude,” we’re all just as loving and affectionate as can be. Oh, we’re pretty frightened at the moment since mom went into a skilled nursing facility and our lives have been turned upside down, but just sit and spend some time with us and you’ll see how much attention and petting we really crave. I’m a 15-year old lady who comes with free vet care, so it sure would be grand if you’d take me home (maybe with one of my housemates?) and let me get back to the important business of being your constant companion.
