Extreme Makeover: Turtle Tank Edition
Kelly, the girl from school who watched Cherbs while I was gone, was an overachieving turtle-sitter. She got some advice from a friend who worked at a zoo. She bought new bedding, taped up the sides of the tank so Cherbs can't see out, bought light, and made a new tent. I had heard about turtles getting stressed about having glass walls, but I just let Cherbs run around the apartment to solve that. I guess the new tank is working, Cherbs seems calmer. Maybe she wasn't a hateful and bitter turtle this whole time, maybe I wasn't taking care of her properly. Oh no, I'm a terrible turtle dad.
