Here's my cat Krusty with my baby turtle Shaggy.

Krusty loves this little turtle Shaggy. One time he was tipped over on the top of his shell and I was in the other room and Krusty came up to me meowing and lookin towards the tank and something told me to go look and so I did and sure enough there was little Shaggy struggling to get back over. If Krusty wasn't a good babysitter then Shaggy would've drowned.

Welcome to the forum!

I'm glad kitty doesn't put turtle in his mouth

They look so cute together and Krusty reminds me of a little shorter haired Twinkie, they're both dusky Twinkie colored!

Hi,
The baby turtle is only the size of a half dollar. The cat really likes him. I have 3 other turtles too that are bigger. They range from 3 to 4 inches. The little baby one had a rough start at life. When I got him he still had an egg tooth and he was very sick. His eyes were swollen shut. I brought him to a reptile vet and she gave him a 5% chance of living. He had stopped eating and was just in bad shape. Well she gave me meds for him and he is ALOT better. I call him my miracle turtle cuz he pulled through. She told me he must have a strong will to live. He is getting so much bigger and eats like a horse and loves to swim around. He crawls over to Krusty when I let him run around and Krusty just lays there and watches him. Krusty even lets him crawl on him. Its the cutest thing.

What is the baby's turtle name? I love it it is so delicate and yet so strong. Pus to see him with Krusty - that is a splendor

explore, doubt and discover for yourself what is the truth.

Hi,
The baby turtle's name is Shaggy. I have 3 other turtles too.. Freddie, Daphne, and Velma. I'm a Scooby Doo fan... Can't you tell!!!! lol I think Krusty really took a liking to the baby turtle. He lets him crawl on him and he's my babysitter. lol Maybe he senses the baby turtle had a bad start at life but is now almost 100% better. The turtle has parasites which he will always have but the vet says it is only transmitted to other turtles not my cat. I made sure of that. Plus my cat doesn't lick him or anything. If I knew it was "contagious" I definetly wouldn't let my cat near him. Krusty is my whole world. I love my cat more than anything!

I love the names. Are the other baby turtles having problems or is it only Shaggy? I am so happy he is doing beter. And what a great adoptive parent Krusty is!
