A hugh surprise...........
We have an outside cat, Shadow, who does not realize she is suppose to hunt for her food! So I feed her every morning and every evening. One of the first things I do everyday is put a scoop of food in her bowl, just outside our back door on the carport. By the time I am ready to take my coffee and go outside she is usually finished eating, and she usually never finishes it all, but the last week I have been noticing that her dish is always turned on its side. Wayne and I figured that the raccoon or the opossum was coming up and eating, BUT.........this morning we discovered who was eating her leftover cat food. A tortoise, as you can see in the photo, he tipped the bowl over and enjoyed his meal. I guess he has been coming for over a week now, so I will just continue to feed him and the cat. I can't stand to see an animal go hungry.
