It’s weigh-in day!  I clocked in at 263 grams, my second biggest semiannual(ish) weight gain yet!  Mom is relieved that last summer was just a fluke.  I say more noms are in order so I can break my summer growth record!

Today is a smug Tall Tuesday:  I am now tall enough to use my evil plastic plants as a chin rest!  Take that, plastic plants!

Mom, this chair shrank again!  I can barely fit my head and one leggie through the railings now!  Fix it, Mom!

If I stare at the colors in my new water dish long enough, will they turn into noms?

I got a new, bigger water dish!  Mom is excited about all the colors.  I am not.  I don’t see any of my favorite nom colors, Mom!

Psst…did you notice how I have shoved everything to the center of my enclosure, so that anything I want is within easy reach?  😎

Mom gave me my seminannual(ish) weigh-in over the weekend!  My winter regime of nomming and napping as much as possible worked:  I grew even more this winter than I did last summer!  See, Mom, I told you all those extra treats for my winter GRUMPs were a good idea!

Mom, I’m still stuck.  Move these posts further apart please?

Monday just got worse:  My water dish is starting to be a tight fit for my shell!?

Mom, not only do I still not fit between the railings on this chair, but also now I can’t even fit both front leggies through at the same time!?  Make this chair stop being so mean to me, Mom!

I am too naughty cute for Tumblr!  Or Tumblr is a fan of this chair being mean to me forever.  😖

(Tumblr has since removed the flag from this post, after we requested a review.  Clearly still evidence of chair-bias at Tumblr though!)


We will keep posting here on Tumblr for as long as we can!  Tumblr has been our favorite platform for sharing my adventures every day, and we hope the current issues are resolved soon.

If you are leaving Tumblr or if our Tumblr goes poof (we really hope not!), you can still follow my shell-tastic adventures on these other sites:

PSA:  It looks like Tumblr’s new filter does not notify you if it flags any of your posts, so we recommend checking your posts in your dashboard.  We scrolled through the last two months of our posts and didn’t see any other flagged posts, so hopefully Tumblr doesn’t delete any of our posts or our entire blog on December 17!

We are also looking into whether we can archive/mirror all our Tumblr posts on another platform, just to be safe.  Our pre-Instagram posts are only here on Tumblr!  WordPress seems to be the most popular backup/mirror option, but we’re not sure if we can fit within their storage limits.  If anyone has any suggestions, we’d love to hear them!
