A Cat Named Turtle

Once upon a time, there was a kitten. He was wild like his siblings and they lived on a little farm in the country. This little kitten loved to bite. He bit everyone and everything. And his fur looked like a tortoise shell.

So he was named Turtle.

As turtle grew up, his bit less and his fur looked less like a tortoise shell.

But he was still named Turtle.

He loved friends. All kinds of friends. Dog friends. Horse friends. Chicken friends. Human friends. Everyone was his friend, even if they didn’t want to be. His favorite friend was the biggest dog ever, named Brutus. Brutus hated Turtle, but Turtle didn’t mind. After all, wasn’t biting an expression of love?! Turtle cuddled with Brutus until he finally loved him back.

And then something really sad happened. Brutus got very sick. And after a couple of days, Brutus got in the car and didn’t come back. So Turtle slept in Brutus’ bed for a while and then decided to make a new best friend.


He picked a tiny human this time. This tiny human was pretty new to the place where Turtle lived. He was pretty clumsy too.

But as the tiny human grew, he got stronger and Turtle loved him more. Even if he was a little rough sometimes.

They did all sorts of fun things together. Especially when they were outside.

They liked to sit and watch the chickens.

The tiny human also loved to comb Turtle’s hair. Which Turtle loved. Because Turtle loved the tiny human.

Mostly the tiny human just wanted to look at Turtle’s paws and touch his whiskers. And that was ok with Turtle. He always purred his loudest when he was around that tiny human.

Turtle loves his tiny human and his tiny human loves him back. Kisses and hugs all day long. Turtle and the tiny human will be best buddies forever.

    Tiny Boots • Longbourn Farm
    March 8, 2016 at 11:16 AM […] Those tiny boots will take him on all of his “first” adventures. His first adventure to the chicken coop. His first adventure to inspect the wheelbarrow tires. His first adventure following Maverick wherever their wild little hearts lead them. Those tiny boots will probably also step in lots of poop. And potentially dead things. And get very dirty. But we all know that way out here, the best days are the ones that end in dirty clothes. And tiny boots caked in mud. There are so many real-life adventures to be had on a farm. And all a little boy needs to have them is a tiny pair of boots and a trusty dog {or a Cat named Turtle}. […]
