Lit­tle Pick Me Ups

This tor­toise has his own­ers in a spin…

Pick Me Up! Special - - News -

Lisa Purnell, 38, Bedminster

As we waited at the Highcroft Vet­eri­nary Hos­pi­tal, my three­year-old daugh­ter, Lena, and I were wor­ried sick. Our pet tor­toise, Touche, had been in a nasty ac­ci­dent at home and we had rushed him straight in, so wor­ried.

Lena and Touche are best friends.

She wakes up ev­ery morn­ing and wants to play with him, kiss him and feed him. But the vet came out with bad news. ‘I’m afraid Touche has bro­ken his back leg, and it will need to be am­pu­tated,’ she said to us gen­tly. Lena was dev­as­tated. But luck­ily, the hos­pi­tal’s cre­ative staff had some­thing in mind for Touche.

Touche adapted so well

Lena adores her tor­toise

Wheelie Good!
