Many of you will know that I share my home with three tortoises. Little ’Un came to me about 4 years ago when he was found wandering along a road miles from any habitation. In spite of intensive enquiries no one came forward to claim him so he stayed with me and, with Jubilee and Josie, became known as the Terrible Trio.
He was lively, always into something, so you can imagine my shock when I found that he had died during last night.
I cannot explain his death, he was not having any breathing problems and wasn’t off his food. With hindsight I realise he was not as active as usual over the last few days but that is the only thing I can pinpoint as slightly unusual.
I have buried Little ’Un at the end of my back garden, where he dashed around freely and joyously over the last 3 summers. He may have been small but he was a big character and all the family will miss him.
