A Woman in Catonsville is Beside Herself After Her Pet for More Than 78 Years Goes Missing

Baltimore, Maryland - With temperatures in the 70’s on Thursday a Baltimore County pool sits empty.

Catonsville resident, Gloria Todd says she’s had her pet turtle, Moses since she was 5.

“He lived with me till September 12th, for 78 years.” said Gloria.

Now, the slider turtle has slid right out of sight.

“I am really concerned about his health,” said Gloria. “I have a special light for him. He does not eat regular turtle food that you buy at the store listed under  ‘turtle food.’”

When asked what Moses does eat in case someone spots him, but Gloria says, “I’m not going to tell you exactly what he eats.”

She’s concerned about sharing too much of his personal information.

Gloria does tell us Moses is the size of a lunch plate, with yellow lines on its head, neck and shell.

She believes he was snapped up.

“I think he was taken, at dinner time, and he is usually not out that late,” Gloria says.

She hopes someone sees this story and brings Moses home.

“I’m just concerned for whoever has him, knows how to care for him. I’m hoping someone will return him to me.”

Usually Moses stays inside–in the laundry room, but after its vet recommended he get more sunlight, he started spending more time outside.

No word if he is already hibernating.
