So he finally did it. Beli jugak. Much to my dismay.
So far the turtles are fine. No funny smells nor they are dying. Semua masih ok. Let’s hope it stays that way. My argument with Gee when he mentioned about pets was about keeping them alive. Risau nye if they die dalam jagaan kita. To me, having a pet is like jaga anak jugak. Amanah Allah. We have Allah to answer to if we do not take good care of our amanah.
IY and Z are very excited. IY helps Gee feeding them everyday while Z watches with much enthusiasm. The other day IY held the turtles for the first time and I must say he’s very brave. He helped picking the turtles out for Gee to clean the tanks. They eat the food bought at the pet shop. Apa ntah nama dia but it looks like fish food tu. Sehari makan dalam 7-8 biji once a day. The pet shop owner pesan tak boleh makan banyak sangat karang dia mati kekenyangan pulak. Also to make sure they are warm enough tak boleh sejuk. How to tell if they are sick/dying? The eyes will turn white. Everyday I make sure the eyes are NOT white and they are still moving.
Me? Still very geli to touch. Although I think I’m getting better. Perasaan meremang bulu roma dah takde. I kinda enjoy watching them “playing” in the tank. Studying their characters are also fun too. I find the male turtle is very hyper-active moving here and there roaming around and panjat2 wood–sampai tergolek pun pernah. While the other turtle which is a female is more reserved, suka nyorok bawah kayu and buat hal sendiri. (Yes, I know now how to differentiate the gender–terre dah).
IY calls them Abang dan Adik. But generally we call them “turtles”. Sangat original eyh?
Pictures are from the DSLR. But if you follow my IG and Keek, there a few more pics and clips over there. Enjoy!
