Loose Valley Care Home welcomes baby tortoises

We are very excited with our tiny new arrivals at Loose Valley Care Home!

Little tortoises, hatched from eggs with the help of our Head Housekeeper Debby, are such a welcome sight!

Paula took three at a time around to see our residents for a little pet therapy visit. Everyone thought they were so cute and so little!

Even our cat Billy got introduced to the babies – he sniff-tested them and couldn’t make out what these tiny, wriggling creatures were. So funny!
