Meet My Cats

Here are my furbabies! My own cats are my inspiration & models for much of my cat artwork. Here's a little about each of them and a photo gallery below. I post regularly about all of my furbabies on Anakin's website, Facebook, Twitter and other social media pages.

Anakin The Two Legged Cat, Cat Artist Carrie Hawks' Cats

Anakin "Ani" ( AKA Boogie or Booginz ) is our two legged cat, born in April 2012 without a pelvis or back legs but that doesn't stop him. He is full of love & life! I am posting updates, photos and videos of Anakin on his Facebook page, Twitter, YouTube and other social media sites as he grows. I invite you to can read Anakin's FAQ to learn more about him.

Mika, our Orange Tabby missing parts of both of his back legs, Cat Artist Carrie Hawks' Cats

Mika is Anakin's Brother from another Mother! (AKA Mika Bunny or Bun-Bun ) We rescued Mika from a Texas shelter in February 2013 when he was about 10 months old. Mika is a special kitty just like Anakin. Mika has about 1/2 of a tail. He has all of one leg except for the actual foot part where the pads and toes would be, and his other leg stops a little ways passed his knee and just rounds off at the end. They say he was born this way. We had a custom made prosthetic house slipper foot for Mika so he will be would be able to walk easier with his almost complete back leg. So far he has not to want to use the slipper and thinks he is just fine without it.We have not pushed the issue since it was making him angry. Mika is a super friendly sweet cat and easily made him self at home with Anakin and The Gang. You can keep up with Mika's progress through Anakin's online pages.

Pixie our brown marble tabby, Cat Artist Carrie Hawks' Cats

Pixie ( AKA Pudge or Pudgy ) born spring of 2010. She is our little scaredy cat. She hides from everyone that comes over to the house. Anakin & Mika like to give her a hard time too. She shows them though because she can easily jump up on something away from them anytime she wants. Pixie and her sister Trixie were kittens we got from the dumpster at my dad's work in the spring of 2010. Yes, they were living in the dumpster but they weren't dumped. They had about 6 wild cats living in the woods where my dad used to work. He fed them. One of the cats there had 5 kittens ...and decided the dumpster was the safest place to keep her babies. So the guys there caught the kittens and found them all homes. Before retiring my dad trapped the remaining cats and got them spayed/neutered. They were then all relocated to a wonderful area where they are all cared for by a very sweet lady.

Trixie, Tabby & White, Cat Artist Carrie Hawks' Cats

Trixie ( AKA Fat Girl or Pretty Girl ) is Pixie's sister also born spring 2010. Besides Mika, Trixie is our most outgoing cat. She is always happy to greet anyone that comes over our house. It's amazing how two cats raised exactly the same together link Trixie & Pixie can have such completely opposite personalities. Also Trixie loves to eat! She will eat all of the others food if I don't watch her. She also love to lounge in the sun on our screened porch. Trixie is just an all around happy, friendly cat.

Pixie our brown marble tabby, Cat Artist Carrie Hawks' Cats

Arya ( AKA Aryee, Wildling, Beautiful ) born spring of 2017. Our newest 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 that next morning and she was approximately 10 weeks old, weighed 1.75 pounds and should weigh around 3 pounds at that age. Arya had a rough start but she's perfect now & as you can see by her belly she's making up for being a skinny kitten!
