Hi! I'm Caitlin, also known as Tiptoe's Mom. Born and raised right here in Los Angeles, I'm now 27 years old and living life alongside my boy Tiptoe.

Let me tell you a story about a little girl who asked Santa for a pet tortoise at the sweet age of 7. That's right, yours truly! And Santa, being the hero he is, delivered beyond expectations, bringing me Tiptoe – a tortoise from the third-largest breed in the world. He came with no how-to guide, but we quickly got to learning! 

Growing up with Tiptoe, I quickly learned he was no ordinary pet. He grew from a little hatchling into the tank of the 175 lb tortoise he is today. My mom and I spent months going to tortoise expos and reading all about Sulcatas until we felt "confident" -- we are still learning today. 

In 2020 I posted a video about Tiptoe's daily plate of food. Little did I know, our videos would reach the hearts of so many, spreading joy + positivity. Since then, Tiptoe and I have been on an incredible ride, gathering a community of over 4.5 million followers on TikTok. It's been truly heartening to witness people of all ages and backgrounds connecting with our adventures. 

Thank you guys for tuning in to Tiptoe's "Days in the Life"!! <3
