I'm having trouble replying to posts on here for some reason - keep getting 'saving post' reminder!!
ANYWAY - If the person wanting them back, did not object to them leaving her care in the first place, there is not a lot she can do to make you give them back. She can take you to court through the small claims courts as a civil matter, but it is unlikely to rule in her favour unless she can produce papers to say she bred them from her own registered stock, or if she has papers signed by you to say that you agreed to give them back to her. If she gave them to the other person, then she has to take it up with her. I only know about this because it happened to me, only the other way round. I let a friend take one of my tortoises to try to help a rehomer of hers that had lived alone for many years and was not responding to feeding etc. The arrangement was that I would take the tortoise back when things improved, or not as the case may be. Meanwhile there was serious family illness here involving a child so I did not rush to take him back. When I did finally ask for him back, she refused and despite police intervention, repeated letters to them via registered mail etc, I was never able to get him back. Had I got a written letter to say that he was to be given back, it would have been a different matter. It's not something you expect to do with a friend.I just hope that he has received the same level of care that he has here. If you would like to discuss this privately, I am more than happy to tell you more about my own experience.

You are welcome to pm me x
