Tortoise About Being Lost

If you live in the Colborne Way area, please keep an eye out for Emma the tortoise who escaped from a back garden in Colborne Way on Sunday (28th July). Emma is a much loved Child’s pet and has been part of the family for a great many years.

There is a reward offered for Emma’s safe return. Please contact Tony on 07788 113 843.

My grandparents had a tortoise so this brings back memories for me. They had their address painted on its shell as it used to escape from their garden quite often and was always brought back by kindly neighbours who knew immediately where it had come from.

Update (1st August)

Emma has been found by someone in Buckland Way! I have contacted the person who contacted me with their contact information. Thanks everyone for going into 'tortoise vigil' mode. Stand down now.

Update (1st August - later in the day) - Correction

Emma has not yet been found. Two tortoises have apparently gone missing at about the same time and it was the other one which was found. Glad that one has been found but Emma is still missing.

Apparently she's fine after his ordeal. Just a little shell shocked.

Why is Turtle Wax so expensive?

Because turtles have such tiny ears.

Even from the Eastern end of Colborne Way, that's quite a hike for a tortoise.

I reckon, next week, they'll be a thread about a missing tortoise from Buckland Way, which will most likely turn up in the Colborne Way area.

Good, a happy ending. I hope Emma enjoyed life "on the run" and trust that the family will be removing the "lost" notices from the trees and lampposts.

Lord Cynic, In your haste to broadcast your pretentious contempt for the family who are trying to find their pet, you appear to have overlooked the blogger's last update...

Quote, "Emma has not yet been found".
If missing pet posters on lampposts are seriously compromising the quality of your life, maybe you need to think about getting one? [A life that is, not a tortoise]
