previously on The grey tail: my sis left for Southampton. I’ve been overseeing the pillbox.

Pablita started eating again. thank goodness. we tried to give her a little fruit cause she had been starving herself for quite a few days. it all ended up in food poisoning. what the heck.
basically, tortoises like sweet stuff, just like us. but, unlike us, they cannot process them so they have to evacuate the entire thing good as new. this resulted in crushed watermelon poo, which ominously looked like blood, so I took her to the vet and we had the poo testes.
no parasites, no blood, nothing nastier than the poo itself so we agreed on daily calcium injections, which by now as easy as pie for me.
here is a snap at the back to normal poo. she delivers at least six cargos like this every day during the warm hydrating baths. you wouldn’t believe the strong, earthly aroma.
