Rutherford the turtle lived in a pond in Bend, Oregon. He wasn't happy there, so he came to Hillsboro and ended up making his home in one of the restrooms at Insomnia Coffee Company. Seems to be very content now.

You can talk to him if you like. In fact he's better than most of us at keeping secrets. Rutherford is a real good listener and normally lets you do all the talking. If he does happen to start talking back to you, I think maybe you've been in there too long. If it continues to be a problem, you might want to cut back on the coffee, or try drinking more.

Please don't feed him.
