R.I.P Dear Turtle

I wrote about worrying over Raimie's pet turtle being sick a few days before we head off to Japan for our vacation in mid September. His pet turtle did get well after that and was swimming happily the day we flew off to Japan. When we returned from our vacation, turtle looked perfectly fine to us and was pretty excited seeing us (yeah, he gets excited when he saw me coming near because he knew that I was the one who give out food to him. LOL).

Alas, returning home for the weekend, we found Turtle already dead despite looking fine a few days ago. I was pretty sad and Raimie even more so. Raimie cried bucket loads and I had to console him.

Well, a burial was in order for Turtle. After all, we loved and cared him when he lived so it was only proper he got a nice send off instead of just being chucked in a dustbin.

Rest in peace, dear Turtle!

It was both funny and heart warming to listen to Raimie saying that he wanted to pray for Turtle to be sent off to heaven after we buried Turtle on top on the hill nearby our apartment.


  1. alamakkkk sedih nya.. anis n adam pun tumpang sedih nih.. depa kan kenai Turtle tu :(

  2. well..get a new one for him..

  3. @syidot,
    memang sedih. Mcm2 dia tanya pasal mati lepas tu. Huhuhu

  4. @wenn,
    if only it's as simple as that for us. :(
    Anyway, Raimie doesn't want a new one at the moment. And I'm actually not too keen of getting a pet cooped up in an aquarium or cages for that matter.

  5. Sorry to hear about this! Poor turtle! I will be sad too! That's why I cannot keep pets! I don't want to be heartbroken!

  6. @foong,
    you are a softie! :)
    Yeah, I can't deal with my son being heartbroken so no new one for the time being.

  7. Condolences to pet turtle.

    It is really a sad thing when a pet dies.

    I remember last time when I was a kid, my fmaily have this alsatian dog. it got into a fight and soon his wound didn't heal. we had to send him off and I was crying my eyes out. I really love that dog.

  8. @ladyviral,

    Losing a pet is really sad and it it kinda breaks my heart even more to see my son being completely devastated about it. :(

  9. this is so devastating. so sorry for the loss of your pet. i can feel your pain.

    time will heal all wounds.

  10. I guess this turtle being with guys for long already? Anyway, I understand the feeling when losing a pet. I was pretty sad too when I lost my pet dog long time ago. RIP turtle! :-)

  11. @Life Ramblings,
    I hope so too. I keep on looking at the empty aquarium expecting to see it swimming around. Huhuhu...

  12. @Dora,
    Just shy of three years. We had him when he was as big as a fifty sen coin. :(

  13. i remember crying so much in the vet when my chihuahua died...i can't believe i did!

    i feel sad for raimie but he'll get over it soon =)

    poor turtle, but better that there's no more suffering for him

  14. @Ayie,
    I hope so too. :) I know he wanted a cat, but I think I can't deal with a cat right now. :D

  15. Maybe Zaini should start his own blog. Then you both can sama sama blog. Haha!

  16. Oops! I think commented on the wrong post!! Pls delete it! LOL!

  17. @foong,
    never mind lah, increase my comments count. LOL

  18. I accidentally saw this post at the bottom..... I never told anyone that a baby turtle waited at my door all night. We were leaving for airport to fly to Fukuoka at sunrise when I saw the turtle looking up at me. I don't know how it got to my porch instead of hide in my garden's bushes. Now it is our house pet.
