Brake for Turtles!

If you spot a turtle in the road, please be sure to stop! 

You’ll want to get out of your car and help the turtle move in the direction he or she was heading. Turtles know where they are going, and they will turn back into traffic if you don’t send them where they wanted to go.

  • Small turtles can be picked up and carried across the road. Using both hands, you’ll want to gently scoop the turtle up by holding the shell/body, in between the front and back legs.
  • Large turtles or snapping turtles should be handled as little as possible. Wear gloves if you’ve got them, and gently encourage the turtle into a cat or dog carrier OR onto a solid, flat surface (like a piece of sturdy cardboard) that can be safely moved a short distance with the turtle on top of it.

If you spot a turtle who is injured and/or has been hit by a car, please don’t assume he or she is dead!

Turtles have slow metabolisms and can suffer for days, even weeks, before dying. Test for a reaction by pinching a back toe, or very gently touching the corner of turtle’s eye lid (if possible). Injured turtles must be contained and transported to a vet or animal shelter right away.

These photos are graphic, but they illustrates how important it is that you stop and check on turtles who have been hit. Turtles that are hit by cars are probably still alive and suffering badly.

If they’re not injured, and not in the street—leave ’em alone!

Thank you for helping turtles!! <3

I sprained my wrist 2 weeks ago. And this wouldn’t really be that big of an issue if I wasn’t playing double the amount of volleyball this semester than normal. So I’ve been super bummed that I can’t play yet. 

But good thing: it’s definitely getting better! 

Oh wait, let’s not forget that on monday, I started feeling major improvements in my wrist, all the while my body decided to fail me. 

Dramatic I know, but I have some horrible virus that is causing me to miss work, miss volleyball even more and miss out on the phenomenal weather that MI is finally getting. 

So saying that I’m bummed is an understatement. I’m miserable. And it’s funny because it was one thing after the other. It was my cat, and then it was having to take exams in virtually all of my classes while I was in mourning, and then it was spraining my wrist, and now it’s this dumb virus. And I need to be better over the weekend, because my mom is visiting me from Friday to Saturday and we have lots of fun things planned. This just bites.

I’m posting this not to be a Debby downer, but to let you know that I trust that God has great things planned for me, I’m just going to have to live through this crap for a while. 

Prayers for good health and a happy and successful rest of my Junior year of college would be seriously appreciated.

God bless

Found this guy out in the road while walking my dog. The back of his head is really torn up and he’s missing some feathers in multiple locations. I think another animal must have roughed him up. I’m not positive, but it looks like he’s a “Great-tailed Grackle”. He can’t fly, but he sure can flop. I’ve been feeding him small seeds and bread, and using an eyedropper to give him water. He’s finally calmed down enough to take a nap, so hopefully he’ll recover. I would take him to a vet, but I have no way to get there. 

Wish him luck!

Meet my new friend, Raincloud ! (I’m bending down because I don’t have a full length mirror) We are going to spend so much quality time together for the next 3-4 weeks! I only wish we would’ve met 8 weeks ago.

I named her Raincoud because she looks like one-large, grey, and full of woe. My healed foot is like the sun and when Raincloud leaves, I’ll be back to frolicking in the sunny fields~ ☀️😎🌸

Injured Bird Update Day 2

It’s 8:30 am and he’s still breathing, but he isn’t moving much at all. He is still drinking the water I give him, so hopefully he just needs more time to recover. The bloody areas on his head look much better! Please continue to pray for him!
