Have you been having trouble feeding your turtle veggies? Here, I show you my secret of how I got my turtles to eat leafy greens, and that is Mustard Greens because they are extra zesty and flavorful! Plus, my cat wants to be on camera because she loves turtles!

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.

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!

Have a great Labor Day Weekend, everybody!

During the state lockdown, I let my pet turtles out of their aquarium to have a nice meal. I also take them outside to get fresh air and natural sunlight.

Check out my video to get your mind off of things right now :)  Enjoy!

sketch: cat sitting up

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, Mochi is always on high alert. She is startled by the slightest sound. She posed for my portrait drawing while she stared at birds outside the window. And as you can see, she has the biggest eyes.

Yes, I named my cat after the delicious Japanese ice cream dessert :)

To be a cat means having a good life. People love them. People take care of them. In some cultures, people worship them. And my cat is no exception.  I did a sketch of my cat sleeping, enjoying her good life. Even when asleep, cats twitch and shuffle around, which forces me to sketch quickly. But that is a good exercise in creating a loose free-flowing line in tight time constraints.

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.

This is my little drawing of a Red-Eared Turtle, commonly found in the fresh waters of North America. It is inspired by my pet turtles.

It has been a rather cold winter and I made a short video of How to Keep Your Turtle Warm. If you have pet reptiles and an aquarium too, please feel free to check it out: https://youtu.be/yJQiEjiZ5bY

Let me know what you think :)
