Hey animal and turtle lovers. It is Turtle Time! Sadly, my aquarium filter finally kicked the bucket. So now my pet turtles need a new filter. I test out the Fluval U4. Is it the best underwater aquarium filter for pet turtles?

During my test, I share a simple hack tip for saving money on carbon cartridges. Also, in this episode, have you ever seen a Cat Turtle?

Here is a special posting for New Years, a vlog from my turtle! Sometimes, my pet turtle feels adventurous and wants out of her aquarium. In this video, my big turtle decides to go for a walk around the house, to explore. During her walk, she encounters herself, at a mirror, and the cats! Enjoy :)

drawing: my cat mochi

September 30, 2021

It’s a lazy day at the cabin. The autumn leaves are starting to change here in the Upstate New York mountains. A bit too chilly to go paddling because of a cold front. So I am bonding with my cat, Mochi, and doing a little drawing of her. I have to say that it is nice to get back to my artwork.

If you would like to see my drawings, please feel free to check out my shop at www.designosaurus.etsy.com

Have a nice early fall day!

Pet turtles really like to bask and get some rays. During the warmers months of the year, I let my turtles get sun exposure where they can acquire important vitamin D for their shells, while they relax in tubs on my deck. I try to keep my talking to a minimum in my ASMR-type video, let the turtles have fun and let my cats watch the action!

Please note: Make sure you let your turtles out only in an enclosed fence area. Turtles can get out of their tubs! Also, use discretion in areas where there might be predators that might attack your turtles, like raccoons!

Strange times we are living right now. On the plus side, I have more time to draw and to be creative. How are you feeling?

Be safe all!

I have to say that my cat, Mochi, has excellent eye contact. Although cats don’t show facial emotion as readily as dogs do, it never fails to amaze me at how engaged she is when looking out at nature, through the window and on TV! I just had to draw her as she cordially sits on the dining table to get a closer look at a nature program on the flat screen. You can actually see her in action on my short video (from a few blog posts ago).

Do you think my drawing captures her expression well?

My cat drawing is quite devilish. Halloween is almost here. Do you have your costume yet? What are going to be this year?

I made a short video, showing a new tackle box that is simple and can hold a lot of fishing lures. Plus, my cats choose a lure for me to use to catch Bluegill.

Enjoy. Thanks for watching!

It’s 3 a.m.! Have you fed your cats? My cartoon shows how my three cats are not shy about asking for kibble in the wee hours of the morning.

Why do cats love laying on boxes and luggage?  This time, she is on my paint box.
