Introducing Pixie

This is a picture of my outside cat taking a nap in my living room. I wanted to name him ‘Marcellus Wallace’ after the gangster from the movie ‘Pulp Fiction’ but my wife had already named him ‘Pixie.’

She got the name because as she was looking for him outside one day, she said “Where’s my Pixie Bob?,” and he came running. So the name “Pixie” just stuck.



Cool Cat

So this stray cat started hanging around my place. He begged for food one day so I fed him. Now he won’t go away. That’s okay, I decided to keep feeding him and let him hang out outside. He can be an outside cat.

I did notice that he is a kitten or a very young cat but he’s as big as a full grown cat. And although he is an orange tabby, he has spots on his back. Very unique looking.  I suspect that he’s mixed or a hybrid.








…after she’s eaten 3 Crawdads and falls asleep from being full right in the middle of climbing up her ramp. It kind of reminds me of myself after Thanksgiving dinner. I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. That’s why I had to share.


My pet aquatic turtle Isabelle, AKA Izzy, outgrew her basking dock. Turtles like to sit and bask under a heat lamp and soak up the rays, it’s good for their health. She got so big that her store-bought dock would sink halfway into the water every time she lay on it. So she could never get completely dry because of this; her head would get some rays but than her feet and legs would still be soaked.

The skin on her legs was getting irritated so I had to come up with a plan. I ran across this video on You Tube (see the video below) on how to make an above the tank basking dock. The basking dock rests on top of her tank and when she wants to get into the water, she just climbs down the ramp. This was a fun project that me and my wife worked on together. We used egg crate and zip ties and used the video for reference. Izzy loves it!


“What’choo lookin’ at!?”



“This is all mine.”

“A girl’s gotta get her sun.”



Izzy says “Hello” to Internet Land. She is super excited this 4th of July weekend because she gets to feast on craw dads while we feast on BBQ. Ahh, a turtle’s life. 🙂

Here’s Izzy basking on her dock, soaking up the rays of her heat lamp. I love how she spreads out her back feet and tucks her front feet into her shell when she basks.  She has that look on her face like “Okay, you can leave me alone now.” She’s so spoiled.

Basking all day with all the food you want. Now this is the life!
