(Cape Town, South Africa)
My husband and I moved into a house about 6 months ago and two days later discovered a tortoise living in the garden.. We have three dogs, two cats and a monkey whom all live inside.
For the past week or so we have noticed "Charlie" wanting to come inside.. So we bring him in.. He seems to want to be my side and follows me around the house. I feed him lettuce and cucumber but he still follows me. If i sit down at my desk then he sits at my feet. he also seems to be fascinated with the rest of the animals in the house and tries to play with them..
We have found this behaviour truly odd however most enjoyable to have a further addition to the family..
Is this all our imagination or do they have social tendencies??
What does he want? Am i missing something?
Thanks so much..
