Turtle SK5861


Hi my name is Turtle & I came into the care of the rescue with my siblings after being surrendered. Thankfully the rescue was contacted who wasted no time in finding a suitable foster carer who was able to provide us with a safe and loving environment for us to stay until forever homes are found!

I am sure the first thing you'll notice about me is my ticked, tabby coat... I have a well, rugged look- which is really just a polite way of saying I look a bit rough! My foster mumma loves this about me and she's confident someone else will too. The second thing you'll notice about me is my bright, sparkling peepers (not that these are any less impressive than my dazzling coat). The third thing you'll notice about me (and by this point I'm sure you'll have already fallen in love) is my curious, playful and affectionate personality. I love to dabble in all things fun, amusing, mischievous, exciting, and thrilling. I love to investigate anything and everything new followed closely by my siblings. All acquired contraband from our exploration adventures are then stashed in what might otherwise be classed as inappropriate places (e.g. I once put my foster mumma's knickers in the bin!). My foster mumma {thankfully} finds my playful antics humorous and I'm hoping to find an adopter just as understanding. Hours of entertainment...? Yep! I'm here to provide that and so much more! N' when I'm not causing a ruckus with my siblings? You'll find me nestled into someone's lap on the couch. You see, I'm a bit of a snuggler. A big snuggler. The best snuggler. I live for human attention, your attention.

So now the important stuff. What sort of home will I suit? Pretty well anywhere! Cats? I enjoy the company of other kitties and will adapt well to a home with another feline friend (or 2!). Dogs? While I haven't previously lived with canine companions, I have proven to be non reactive when meeting them from the comfort of my pet carrier. It likely won't be love at first sight however- the rescue is confident that with time, I will adjust well to their company (ideally no energetic doggos). Children? I don't mind kidlets however, would prefer a home without children under the age of 3.
