Watson loves his mummy

Watson is the most affectionate turtle I have had in the last 37 years. He loves to cuddle, and he started doing this when he was about 6 months old. He loves to mush his face against mine and stays there forever till I move him. We do this every day when I get up and when I get home from work. It is our ritual.
