Hello everyone
Posted: 18/02/2009 by marilyn

Click and drag me down to the editor   Hello all,  I just wanted to say a very big thank you to Arlene and everyone at TPG for allowing me to adopt little Toto.   I am so proud and happy to have Toto and I feel very priviledged indeed.  He will be very much loved and cared for..  I thoroughly enjoyed making his Tortie table and decorating it with stones, pots and all the things they love to scramble over.  I'll let you all know how we get along and if |I have any worries ... you lot will be the first to help.  With love from Marilyn. xx

Sounds like a match made in heaven Marilyn! The rehoming team work very hard trying to find 'for-ever' homes for the tortoises that come up for rehoming. It is a very emotion time for previous owners, especially for the elderly keepers who have had their much loved tortoise for most of their lives. They spend endless hours before they decide on the correct homes for these tortoises so well done! Can't wait to see the pictures!

Hello Elaine,  Thank you for your message.. Lovely to hear from you as usual.  I know how I would feel if I had to rehome my precious little Toto. Devastated...  I'll give his previous Mummy a few more days to grieve and then I'll give her a quick ring to let her know that Toto is well and being pampered like a Prince.  It's a sensitive time for everyone ....  Lots of BIG thank you's to everyone at TPG.. love from Marilyn. xxClick and drag me down to the editor

I'm sure she will appreciate that Marilyn. It is amazing just how reassured a past keeper can be with an update or photo. I do my calls post and pre hibernation and normally a 'naughty' one in the summer when they all take it in turns to do something our of order: eating my 2" Sedum was last years antics.

Hi Marilyn

You are very welcome, and it is important for Toto's previous owner too, to know that he is being so well loved and cared for!

Sedums are a great favourite in my garden too Elaine, I have to barricade them off, otherwise they get eaten down to the ground!
