PURPLE CAT: What do you do for the organization?
CHELSEA: I help take care of the tortoise named Scat Man/Shelly. It is a lot of fun, and I get paid for doing it. It is an African spurred tortoise. It is a lot of work. There has been some confusion on if our tortoise is a boy or a girl. I did my research and watched many videos on how to tell, and ours is in fact a BOY. 100% Scatty, Scat Man the Tortoise. I also just started helping with calendar ideas! I also like helping staff and the other Catters. I love making people laugh and smile. I am a great listener to hear them talk about their problems.
