A spoiled pet Tortoise known for her fancy dress outfits dons a spooky ghost outfit just in time for Halloween.
Ethel is a four-year-old Sulcata tortoise who lives a life of luxury at her home in Sonoma, CA under the care of doting owners Kasey and Dan.
The star of ‘Ethel The Glamour Tort’ social media page brings joy into the lives of her tens of thousands of followers by showing off her extensive wardrobe.
Spooky season is no exception as video and pictures show Ethel in her Halloween costume dressed as a ghost.
Ethel’s owner Kasey Kuchinski who has cared for the Tortoise since she was a hatchling said: “There is a #ghostphotoshoot trend going around on TikTok so we decided we should try it out with Ethel’
“We never know how she will react to the costume, I didn’t really think she would let me put it on her face I thought we would have to do it with the sheet only on her shell. I was so pleasantly surprised at how little she minded having the costume on!”
“Reactions have been very positive. Seeing a cute tortoise dressed as a ghost is something that makes people smile I think!”
“Ethel is the queen of the house, she enjoys free reign of the yard and most of the house, she is stubborn, and very curious, quite a trouble maker! A tortoise shows affection very differently than a dog or a cat, mostly she she likes to follow us around, She also comes to greet us when we get home!”
