Coming Soon! Tigerpixie Enamel Pins!




My first 3 Enamel Pins are "Day of the Dead Cat", "Maneki Neko Luck" and "Halloween Black Kitty"! They are all Soft Enamel Pins measuring 1.75" tall (44.5mm). I ordered 50 of each to start with and see how they do. I'm happy to say they did really well at DragonCon! I will be adding them to my website very soon & will let you know when they are available for purchase.


About the Images....

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 is going to be so cute! He will be here in plenty of time 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.


If you would like to see more, I have been sharing images sent to me from the pin factory, sample production pin images and lots more on my Patreon page $5 tier over the passed few weeks.

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.
