Hiya, welcome back!!!

You've probably already sorted it now, but what I did when I woke my torts up the other day was;

Took them out the fridge, and left them at 'room temperature' in the boxes they hibernated in, once they started moving around - which was after about half hour to an hour I then bathed them and put them all into a bigger box and turned the heat lamp on. Again I left it a bit till they had warmed up and then put some food in with them, after they had eaten a bit I bathed them again. I then left them there for a couple of hours so that I could keep an eye on them and once happy that all was ok, transfered them to their table.

It worked for me! biggrin.gif

I took mine out of the fridge in the evening and put them in their indoor run, left them overnight and let the heat and light come on in the morning, gave them some food, which they ate straightaway and bathed them later that day

I took Tilly out of the fridge sunday afternoon... I left her on her table still in her box until Monday. Took her out of the box and bathed her yesterday morning and left her for about 20 mins. The lamp was switched on when she had finished her bath so i put her under it.

I went back about an hour later to see if she wanted anything to eat, picked a few dandelions and left her with them, she turned her nose up at them and went under her log to sleep again.

So far today there has been no sign of her getting up. Should I take her out of bed and bathe her again?

Good idea and then put her under the lamp. If she's a bit reluctant to eat, chop a small bit of cucumber in with the dandelions.
