Meet My New Child, Tippy

Last weekend, Jeff and I were shopping at IKEA, when out of nowhere he suggests that we get a fish. I’ve had fish before, and I usually get bored of them, but I thought, what the hell, let’s do it. So we found a big glass vase, and then headed to the janky, bootleg pet store down the street.
When we got there, the selection for fishes was quite slim, but then Jeff noticed something swimming in the water,

“Oh look, it’s a turtle!”

Sure enough, swimming around the tank was the cutest little turtle, no bigger than two quarters put end to end. I looked around the store more, but all i could think about was that adorable little turtle. Everyone has fish, but how many people do you know have a turtle? Like none. So we bought the turtle and took him home. His name is Tippy, named after someone’s childhood dog. I thought the name was cute, so I totally stole it. He’s a Red-ear slider, and is a lot of fun to watch swim.

Kitsune Noir may just have a new mascot.
