    I'm so worried about my 8 year old,

    Cleopatra. The cold season is coming and she has a dual ear infection! I'm hoping to get it taken care of before hibernation time comes.

    Fivel [my Painted Turtle]

    My Mum's gave him to my little brother when we moved here to keep him company in the time he had to wait before he went back to school, but he has a habit of having his pets die "mysterious" deaths, so I bought some dragon ball Z movies and traded for the turtle's life...

    I'm frustrated and a little scared.

    .. My big turtle that I've had for 2+ years always has a huge appetite... For the past 3 weeks though, he's eaten little to no food... I've tried different things. He just won't eat. He looks normal and just fine though... Also, he's been sleeping a LOT more... Any ideas...
