Cleaning out the turtle tub indoors could be quite a chore so I decided to install another tub outside at the patio. This way, I can just get the garden hose for a quick water change. I was a bit worried at first since it would seem that all the neighborhood cats soon came over and stared at the tub from a distance. They soon lost interest when I sprayed them with the garden hose however.
I tried releasing Turt on the lawn so that she could properly sun herself. She went straight on to the base of a tree and began digging with her hind legs. I think she might be preparing a nest to lay eggs. Unfortunately, I had to move her since I saw some aggressive looking ants near the tree. I'll repeat this activity some other time when I have located a more suitable ant free place for Turt to wander around.
