    I have had my turtle for about 15 years now. He has always been an only turtle because I knew I could never handle two of them. He is HUGE and I cannot imagine how big of a tank I would need for 2 of them. Well I am beginning to feel a bit guilty that he has no friends. I went to our little...

  9. General Animal Discussion
    I was just curious as to how we all decide on names for our furry, or not so furry, friends. My cat Isis is named after the cat goddess, and Polly just seemed to suit my other cat. I also used to have a kitty called fletcher one eye, because he got an eye infection when he was a baby and...

    I'm not sure what to do... I received in the mail yesterday the two baby red eared sliders I had ordered. When I first got them they both had their eyes closed and wouldn't open them, then finally one opened both his eyes, and the other only opened one of them. Still a day has gone by and his...
