Signing 500 Cy & Sal Space Explorers 78 Tarot Postcards!






Signing 500 Purrty Postcards of my Cy and Sal Space Explorers - AKA The "Page of Wands" for the 78 Tarot Astral Deck Kickstarter backers packages. My Original Painting, Limited Edition Canvas Prints, Glossy Art Prints, Cameo Jewelry, Notecards, Keychains, Bookmarks & Magnets are available On Sale for a limited time on my website here, https://tigerpixie.com/index.php?route=product%2Fsearch&search=cy+sal

Cy and Sal Space Explorers - AKA The "Page of Wands" for the 78 Tarot Astral Deck. The Page of Wands is a fire card representing exploration, discovery, enthusiasm & a free spirit. I decided to portray my Page of Wands as Cyborg Explorer Kitten "Cy" with his Space Salamander sidekick "Sal"! Cy & Sal are excited to explore this unknown purple planet with it's three mountains & distant star filled galaxies. The red feather of accomplishment from the traditional card is symbolized as part of Cy's red cyborg eye. I brought the symbol of the tail chasing salamander from the traditional card to life by Sal riding on the Cy's tail. The wand has many fire elements such as the moon glyph for fire, under that the fiery healing crystal Carnelian, and then the elemental symbol for Fire. Cy & Sal are enthusiastic space explorers with a passion for discovering their destiny!

Long story short, I went out of town for a little birthday get away leaving my computer turned off. When I got home and tried to turn my computer back on it would not load the hard drive. My hard drive has a mechanical failure and they don't know why. Luckily I did do some back ups in July so this is not as catastrophic as it could have been. I have enough to keep most of my business functioning using my hubby, Dewey's laptop and my discs. It's still very bad though. I need to send my hard drive off to data recovery specialist which is very expensive and I also need to get a new computer asap.

What's New At Tigerpixie Fantasy Cat Art


First, I would like to give a big Welcome to all of my new subscribers :) Thank you so much for your support! I have been very busy behind the scenes adding new things to my website and working on some other projects for my art and also a few things involving my cat Anakin. Today I have to share with you my New Enamel Pins (seen in my update) are now available! I also have the Original Linework Drawings for each pin available as a special set with one of the pins. Even better, I'm having a 20% Off Sale for My Birthday Week & Everything* even the new pins and originals are on sale! Last and certainly not least I want to introduce our new kitty Arya! She had a very rough start in life but is now doing great and making herself right at home with us :)
My first 3 Enamel Pins are now available!
"Day of the Dead Cat", "Maneki Neko Luck" and "Halloween Black Kitty"!
I had ordered 50 of each design to start with and they did really well at DragonCon! I only have a little over 30 of each design to list on my website, Etsy etc. So if you really want them I wouldn't wait. If DragonCon is any indication they will go fast and once gone it will be a little while before I am able to get them back in stock. They are priced at $15.00 each BUT with my 20% Off Sale this week they are only $12.00 each! See them all here, https://tigerpixie.com/shop-cat-art/cat-enamel-pins

My Tigerpixie Collectible Pins are soft enamel and metal pins. I personally redesigned my original artworks and chose the enamel colors to be perfect for each pin. The pin sizes may vary and will be listed in the description of each individual pin. The pins have two secure "locking" backs to keep them from getting lost and keep them straight and in place. All of my pins are stamped on the back with the copyright symbol and my name, ©Carrie Hawks, Tigerpixie. The Pins will come packaged on a backing board in a clear resealable sleeve and are mailed bubble wrapped in an envelope for protection.
Where to wear your Tigerpixie Pin Flair? On a Lanyard, Hat or Scarf... On your Lapel or Shirt Collar... On your Purse, Bag or Backpack... In the Extra Holes of your Belt... On a Jacket or Scarf... Decorate your own personal Collectible Pin Board... That's just a few ideas. There are so many more! :)
About These First 3 Pins... Of course, I had to make my "Day of the Dead Cat" first! :) My "Halloween Black Kitty" looks like he was born to be a pin! This little guy came out so cute! Purrfect for Halloween too! I thought my first "Maneki Neko - Luck" would make such a cute pin! Also who doesn't want to take a little extra Luck with them everywhere they go.

Original Linework Drawing and Enamel Pin Sets
There is only 1 Original Linework Drawing and Pin Set of each pin image available. These are my original 8" x 10" pen and colored pencil line work drawing I created for my custom pin designs. This set includes the drawing on Bristol paper and one of the pins created from the artwork. They are truly One Of A Kind since this image was only used to create the pins and I am not selling prints of them.  They are priced at $125.00 per set BUT with my 20% Off Sale this week they are only $100.00 each!
20% Off Sale Tigerpixie.com

Our New Babay Arya! :)

I'm playing catch up! These are all the posts about her so far :) She's doing so much better now as you'll see in the last pics.

Our New Baby!










Our new baby! She was in the middle of the road in my brother-in-law's neighborhood & not moving. Cars were just driving around her like she wasn't there! She ran into someone's yard when I came up to her. I had some cat food and she was starving so after some coaxing & following her under cars & in bushes my daughter and I were able to catch her. She ate all the food I gave her and was already purring on Angel's lap (my daughter) within a few hours of being at our home. I took her to the vet this morning. She is approximately 10 weeks old. She weighs 1.75 pounds and should weigh around 3 pounds at this age. She is a little pale & has worms so she was given worm medicine. She also had some flea dirt so she was given flea meds. I have her on Hills Urgent Care AD mixed with SuppliCal.  She is very frail, you can feel every bone down her spine & her legs are so bony. My vet says she was starving and pretty much used up all her muscle mass just to keep going. Because of that she's walking kind of crouched right now but shouldn't be for long now that she's eating properly and being taken care of. My vet says that we will be amazed with how quickly she recovers from this and gains weight and start acting like a normal kitten. In the video on Anakin's Facebook ( I'm sorry it wouldn't post here) https://Facebook.com/anakinthetwoleggedcat you'll hear her meow! To me she sounds like a little old lady :) No, she doesn't have a name yet. I'm thinking we might give her a Game of Thrones name since I was crawling around all over someone's yard in the dark trying to catch her while the Game of Thrones finale was on & I love that show ;) We'll see what her personality is like first and then see what fits. Right now she is set up in our hall bathroom just like we do with all new kitties. I'll keep you all posted on how she's doing.

Our little one had a rough night



Our little one had a rough night last night. She had really bad diarrhea. I gave her subQ fluids and Pedialyte. I took her back to the vet as soon as they open this morning. On the way there she finally pooped out a  mass of dead roundworms! Our vet gave her more fluids and started her on a med for her diarrhea. We also switched her food which has helped a lot. She think that the AD was too much for her a little system to handle. She did get A bath today since she was such a mess from the diarrhea. So far the diarrhea has stopped. She spent the day at the vet and looks and acts like she feels so much better now. I brought her home tonight. I will be bringing her back in the morning. I have to go out of town for an art convention that I've had scheduled for a year. I'll be at Dragoncon in Atlanta GA. Our little one is going to be staying through Labor Day weekend until I get home with the amazing wonderful ladies at my vet's office. She will be watched over and taken care of at the vets office during the day when they're open. Then when they close she will be going home with one of the vet techs for the night. I think a couple of the nice ladies will be taking turns. My mother is in town and on call if they need her. I will be getting updates from these wonderful ladies and my vet while I'm away. My son & mom will be taking care of Anakin, Mika, Trixie & Pixie. It's going to be a very hectic weekend for me. I will try and keep you updated if there is anything. Thank you all so much for all of your love and support for us with our new baby. You all really are the best! This pic is from last night before she started feeling worse. As of right now we are leaning towards Arya for her name but it's not decided. She really is a scrappy little survivor! Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend! Have fun & Stay Safe!

Arya Update!




Arya is continuing to get better. It's been 2 steps forward one step back along the way. While I was out of town they did an X-ray to check her insides since she's been bloated and had diarrhea. Everything looked normal. She has put on some weight and is now up to 2.75 pounds from 1.75. She is much more alert, grooming herself and wants to play with cat toys too. Arya has a UTI and is on antibiotics for that. She is also on a probiotic and baby gas drops. She's been running a fever of 104.2 at its highest. They gave her SubQ fluids & I have more for this weekend. My vet thinks the fever could be the beginning of an upper respiratory infections since she still has a little bit of gunk in the corners of her eyes. The anabiotic she is already on for the uti will cover any kind of secondary infection from a respiratory infection. She still has worms & got another dewormer today. She had bloodwork done and is FIV and leukemia negative. Her Bloodwork all looks good except for mild anemia but that could be from the worms she has. The test for FIP/Coronavirus and toxoplasmosis will be back next week. She acts like she feels pretty good, purring, curious, eating & drinking fine and wants to play a little. I think that just about covers everything. Thank you so much for all your well wishes and support. I will keep you all posted!

Arya Update 😊❤️







Arya Update, she's doing much better and is now 3.1 pounds. Her diarrhea has been gone for over a week. She's still taking her antibiotic for her UTI, also a probiotic & baby infant gas drops. The tests for FIP/Coronavirus, blood parasites and toxoplasmosis all came back Negative! She's still running a low fever off and on & has eye discharge. My vet thinks she has a kitten virus like calicivirus or Rhinotracheitis that just has to run its course. She doesn't act sick at all. She's becoming a normal kitten! She's happily, eating, drinking, pooping, peeing, napping, playing, cuddling & purring all the time! The other cats are well aware of her in the bathroom & have seen me carry her around the house some. They have been a bit hissy & growly but that's to be expected. I will begin setting up a screen in the hallway to introduce them properly once Arya's kitten virus is gone. I've included a pic of Anakin staring at the bathroom door. He knows she's in there! Lol! Thank you so much for all your well wishes and support! I will keep you all posted.
