Where Oh Where Has Our Little Turtle Gone?

Oh where or where can he be??

I honestly don't know how this stuff happens to us. How do you lose a turtle?? Really!! Todd cleaned out the turtle tank yesterday and put the turtle in a large tupperware container with the lid on. He has to leave him in there for a bit till the clean water adjusts to room temperature. We left around 12:30pm to go to Aunt Janet and Uncle Tim's to swim in the lake. When we got home around 4 or so, the container was empty. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Grayson (the cat) helped him open the lid. But the turtle somehow got off the kitchen counter and ambled away. (notice I didn't say run since they don't move very fast) He's a decent sized turtle so he can't fit in too many spaces. (I'd say about the size of a hamburger bun). I'm sure the cat knows something but he isn't talking. Every time he goes into another room, we'd follow him to see if he was sniffing anything out. So here it is, the next day, and the turtle is still missing. Keep in mind also that we leave in 2 days for a weeklong vacation. It's kind of important that we find him!! We have turned this crazy house upside down. He had to have found that black hole that everything gets lost in here. It's driving Todd and I crazy. Where else can we look and how can we not find a missing turtle?? I worry that maybe he cracked his shell when he fell off of the counter and is miserable somewhere. (yes, I worry about turtles too).

All I can say is that I hope there is a happy ending to this story!!

Good God Kel*!*
I would loved to see how he got out...and you know that cat has info. How do you interrogate a cat?

Don't feel bad, we lost our turtle for a WEEK! Believe it or not our dog found him and brought him back to us.

POOR LITTLE TURTLE. We lost our hampster once but she was easy to find b/c Merlin was sitting on top of the cold air return grate staring down in the vent. It was comical to see the hampster 'shivering' and almost 'begging' to be rescued. I hope your turtle finds his way home too.
