Jasper-Gigi And Ricky-May-2011

Gigi playing with that talking toy and looking out the window.

Jasper hasn't been eating nor wanting to stay in the water lately because of a vibration noise coming from outside somewhere. It sounds like a water pump deep inside the ground. It's not from this building. I still think it's coming from the water tower on the hill behind us but the village denies it. It's been running for over three months and the noise and vibration is driving me mad as well as Jasper. She had climbed up onto this little cassette holder I have next to my dresser in the bedroom. I don't know how in the heck she climbed up there. I was afraid she'd fall off so put a pillow on the floor beneath her. She had gotten into my package of bed pads and had them lying all over also.. I never use them anyway. Turtles are amazing in what they can do.

Jasper In The Tub-May 16, 2011

This is Jasper in 1996

She stayed in for about an hour before wanting to get out. Now she's under my night stand in the bedroom. That humming noise was real loud last night. It even drove me crazy. Can't imagine how it bothered her. I don't hear that noise yet tonight. It's a miracle! It hasn't shut off for three months. But last night it didn't start up loud till 10 PM. I'm hoping we both can get a good night's sleep for a change.

May 14, 2011-Jasper

Jasper is having a hard time lately. There's been a vibrating noise coming from somewhere outside. Sounds almost like a sump pump. It runs 24 hours a day. The vibration can be felt in my apartment through the cement slab under my feet and the sound drives me crazy at times. Jasper hears through vibrations and this is really bothering her. She won't stay in her water at all. Maybe for an hour in the mornings when the vibration seems less. This has been going on for three months. She hasn't eaten in that long either and I'm very afraid that she will die. She is very restless. Here she is walking around the apartment and goes under the recliner chair. Sometimes she might sleep for the night under there. Right now she's in my bedroom on top of a pair of slippers. She hasn't been in the water at all. I will put her in it in the morning. Just so she can get wet and drink if she wants to. When she wants to go back in the water she will go in the bathroom and wait by the tub. But that was before all this started. Now I have to put her in even if she don't want to.
I haven't heard from the girl that was going to take her. She got laid off here. I think I will contact her though and ask if she wants to still take Jasper. Otherwise she might die.
Jasper looks healthy but you can't tell with turtles. They could be sick and you can't tell.
