Hello everyone!

Wow it's been a long time when I last posted.
Anyway I just happened to sort my pictures and found some that I made last (2013) summer.
Unfortunately this summer has been so far "no Sun" summer and also it's been cold outside, only few days has been sunny and warm..even right now it's raining outside :(
Fortunately, these few days when it was sunny and warm I was off work and took my little one outside to enjoy the sun. :wink:
Hopefully more such sunny and warm days will come this summer because she needs real sun rays.

Here are the pictures 8)

Thank you

Pictures were taken in two different locations. Outside pictures are taken from my uncle's home. My uncle lives about 20 minutes car ride from my apartment.
And all the other pictures are taken in my apartment on the balcony, it's closed balcony with windows as you can see and my little girl has there so-called "summer home", a small temporary rubbermaid pond with all the light and stuff. Her current "room" (read: tank) is waiting for update.

Love the captures Madly, especially the silhouette of you and the turtle. Do you have a screen on that window? Sliders are great climbers.

Thank you Mik.
All the windows have screen's.
If it's getting too hot I can open them and when I leave home I put the windows (when it's hot) ventilation position because we have here so many seagull's and crow's who can easily take away my turtle.
And yes I know how good climbers they are (see the picture) and if the next time I will give her suction cups she will be climbing the glass :lol:

Last tuesday (9.9.2014)I went to the vet or is it right to say that my human took me in there against my will...oh boy...How I hate that place...I still remember last year visit when I ate a hiking mat and had a 3 different types of nematodes..vet gave me a mineral oil and after that treatment was time to give me the treatment against the nematodes....yakk.

Anyway the vet gave me a pedicure and manicure because I don't trim them myself and I'm lazy and like to bask...hahahaa :D
While he was giving me a pedicure I tired to bite him because I don't like when male person is touching me (don't ask) and this pisses me off. I almost bit his finger..almost...but then he said loudly to me "DON'T YOU EVEN DARE TO THINK THAT!!!" His loud voice scared me so much that I peed on the examination table...after doing that he smiled to me and said "You are good girl, yes you are. Please don't bite me." and patted me on the shell.
After pedicure and manicure it was weighing time. Scale showed 960g, 100g more than last year...he said this is normal and healthy and not fat at all. Also he gave my human new guidelines about feeding me (I hope my human didn't hear that) every other day, and in the future 3-4 times a week. Also he said that I have little bit fungus on my shell but that's normal and will go away after I'm done my shedding but this will take some time. My human asked can she give me a "spa treatment" for my shell with diluted apple sider vinegar once or twice a week, because it's been used for treating the fungus, and vet approved that.
And I know you all love pictures..here is one ;)

Yours Padfoot ;)

PS! If you happen to see my human, tell her that she forgot to give me a breakfast this morning.
