i have a tortie too! she's quite the character, and the love of my life
for the longest time she didn't even know i had fish lol. but a couple months ago she hopped onto my desk and thats where i keep 3 of my tanks/bowls, and ever since she sits on the floor and just watches and chirps at them. i've walked in on her a couple times drinking the water from one of the bowls and she'll just sit there like a deer in the head lights, licking her face, then jumps down and runs before i can squirt her with the squirt bottle.
