Christine Lamkin lost her pet tortoise last night in the area of Brooklyn Avenue and South Main Street.

"His name is Nikko," says Christine. "He has a girlfriend that looks just like him and her name is Shelby. They were getting ready to mate. For the last five years, we've put them out on our deck to get some exercise in the summer months. We are confident that he slipped off the deck and wandered away. He has such a huge personality...we are truly heartbroken."

The tortoise is about 8 inches long and 6 inches wide. The shell is black with yellow spots. Head and limbs have faint orange areas.

Christine says "the tortoise needs special and precise care in order to survive as it is a tropical tortoise." Offering reward for safe return.

If found, please call Christine at 585.409.0909 or e-mail her at <[email protected]>

UPDATE: Christine says: "WE HAVE NIKKO BACK! A neighbor across the street spotted him in her back yard (Friday) walking around about 5:20 p.m. and immediately called me. Thank goodness in looking for him all last night we put the word out to neighbors on our street. Boy are we lucky! ...Thanks...BIG LESSON LEARNED!"

(We bet Shelby is pleased as well...)

Our children's cat went missing Friday, May 13th, in the Violet Lane, Stringham Drive area.  Adult, gray calico cat, green eyes...with polk-a-dot collar.  Name is Alicia, but often answers to 'kitty-kitty'.    Any information please email respond to [email protected].  Thank you.

 Reddish brown dog with droopy ears wearing a blue collar.  Found in the area of Church St. It showed up on my daughter's porch and she is hoping the owner will contact her to pick it up before it has to go to the pound.
