Chia Pet Turtle: Day 8

I had worried that Mr. Turtle was a late bloomer or maybe he won't come out of his shell at all. Days 2 and 3 went by since we adopted him and he was covered with chia seeds and still no sign of budding sprouts.

Then on day 8, this past Sunday, my husband noticed something ... tiny sprouts along his sides.

This photo was taken this morning and Mr. Turtle has made some progress since Sunday. I wonder if his bare back has anything to do with a certain curious cat named Havi who wanted a taste of the wonderful chia seeds!
