I started up this website in early 2008 with just a little HTML knowledge and digital drawing skills to get things started. Nick (my brother) soon joined the site and his coding skills gave us the trading and adoption system, along with many other upgrades. A lot of the pets we use today are still based on my original lineart drawings from '08 and '09, but we have added more variety with our ever-growing artist team :) I employ many people nowadays to help put out the monthly pet designs, but I'm still around to control the site direction and keep things running smoothly.

I'm the software developer, database architect, and server administrator behind Chicken Smoothie. I'm the one who builds the stuff that powers our website and the forum. I answer our support email address and handle payments and site privacy. I also maintain our cheating detection system to keep the game fair for everybody. Occasionally I draw some pets too :).

I started out as a Global Moderator back when the site was still in its infancy, worked my way up to be an Admin Assistant until I lastly joined Tess and Nick in their ranks. I am mostly in charge of solving trade disputes but I still fulfill tasks assigned to my former titles. I also maintain the Pound, help a little around behind the scenes and occasionally you will find some pets designed by me.

I live in the Midwestern part of the US and am currently getting prepared to move into my semi-new house with my brother to go to college. I have 4 pets; A black lab retriever mix named Ashlyn, a long haired cat named Maestro, a Leopard Gecko named Ryu, and a blue betta fish named Pepsi. I love buffalo wings and drinking unhealthy amounts of coffee with cream. And lastly, I love wiggly weasels! ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ☆

I'm a young woman living in Southern Canada, currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Museum Studies. I live with my wonderful boyfriend and an assortment of hamsters. We breed Syrians, so feel free to message me about hamsters or their care. I love animals and ride English hunter/jumper as well as have a scholarship to sing in two choirs. I am an avid reader when I'm not in school, and have run my own business. I'm interested in education and how to engage people with art and history. I'm always willing to help out, and I love to draw and write. I love working with rarities and trading as well!

Hi there! I'm a young woman in South Africa, studying a Bachelor of Arts. In what spare time I have, I love to ride horses, teach high-schoolers how to debate, spend time with animals, and derp around on the internet, of course. I'm always happy to answer questions or have a chat, and I love to help solve problems. If you're on another website and see a Verdana hanging around, chances are it might be me!

Normal college girl who is ready to see the world. Obsessed with Robin Hood and Medieval England, a history nerd to the end. Getting a degree in Liberal Arts, before moving into Economics. End game: Environmental attorney. A proud owner of two dogs, a corgi and a German shepherd mix. An avid equestrian, with a certain fondness for riding gigantic Percherons. A former history/geography and English tutor, and a total nerd. Can always be found with nose in a book, or an essay in the happening. I can talk for hours and hours on end, and I will if you don't stop me. Former job includes playing with endangered turtles, so your argument is invalid. Shoot me a note anytime, I don't bite (much).

I'm an American audio producer who tends to an inherited love of the arts. I am gender-fluid and partially colorblind, and addicted to classic rock, Supernatural, betta fish, cats, organization (to an extent). c: I have an open-door policy, which means you're free to contact me and chat, but please refrain from typing in blue!

Ahoy there! I'm a college student studying history in New England, though I'm originally from the west coast. I'm in love with maritime history, as well as the time periods of the 15th and 18th century. If you cannot tell by my name, I'm absolutely obsessed with pirates. In my pastime I enjoy cosplaying, photography, and singing. Other than working over in the RP section of our forums on CS, I enjoy creeping around the forums waving my pirate flag. Now go walk the plank ye scurvy dogs!

I'm an odd Belgian of the female variety with a weird sense of humour and a love for macabre things. I'm currently studying to be a librarian. I love drawing, writing, developing characters, and world building. Essentially, I just really love OCs, both mine and other people's. I have a knack for talking about characters for hours on end, so please don't get me started if you're not prepared for that. When I'm not trying to break people's hearts with sad stories and art, I'm probably gaming.

Greetings fiends friends, I hail from Australia and am fortunate enough to reside on the traditional land of the Kaurna people. Kaurna miyurna, Kaurna yarta, ngadlu tampinthi. I'm a second generation Polish (Cześć, jak się masz?) individual who is owned by three Miniature Pinscher boys; Remy, Jacques and Étienne. I like long walks on the beach or in the forest, travelling, reading fantasy novels, table top gaming and kitchen experimentation. I have an unhealthy obsession with all things Halloween. Would you like to know more? Please contact me at your earliest convenience! On a more serious note, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns - my inbox is always open.

Despite all my efforts to grow up into a cat, I am instead an introverted fantast with a terrible addiction to sweets and bad movies...so I wear a lot of cat ears to try and make up for it ;3 I'm currently residing in Australia and studying interactive media. My door - well, inbox - is always open if you want to talk!

I'm a young college girl living in the northeast United States. I love playing oboe and piano and writing the novel I hope to one day publish, and in fact musical performance and creative writing are my areas of study! I love all animals but currently only keep 3 freshwater aquariums housing bettas and other tropical fish. When I'm not on CS, you can most likely find me spending time with my wonderful boyfriend, writing, or working on my aquariums. If you ever need anything from me please don't hesitate to ask!

When I was younger I dreamed of becoming a professional ballerina, but now I’m just a girl in my early twenties who lives on top of a mountain. My husband and I have two adorable feline companions: Josie the tabby and Luna the Scottish fold. I love reading fantasy and YA novels while I study to become an IT professional, hopefully with a little creative writing on the side. If you're looking for me I can usually be found eating something sweet, curled up on the couch with my laptop and a cat.

Hey! I'm a twenty-some-odd year old married mother living in the USA. I spend most of my time at home caring for my daughter and keeping house. When I do get a bit of free time, I love to spend it drawing and playing on CS with my online friends. My other hobbies include reading, writing, fishing, hiking, horseback riding (but not the sport kind of stuff; just going out and joy riding through the mountains and feilds), and playing xbox with my husband.

User avatar

Hey there! I'm a young woman who is currently attending college in hopes for a degree in biology or medicine. I tend to be quite quirky and one of the most socially awkward turtles you will ever meet. I'm a human encyclopedia full of the most random information in many fields of interest. I also dabble in many hobbies and activities of interest such as art, music and writing. You'll usually find me glued to my computer doing some writing of some sort, doodling, or with my nose in a good book.

You may have seen before in my former role as general helper. I still hold the same 'open-door' policy, so please don't hesitate to contact me for anything, so long as you don't mind me rambling. I promise I don't bite! c:

I'm a young adult living in the midwest of the United States. I'm currently attending college to get a degree in economics. I absolutely love reading and can never have enough books. Other interests of mine include writing, and acting. I love shows like Sherlock, Doctor Who, and Supernatural. I have a fabulous border collie named Kandihar. Don't be scared to drop me a PM for anything; I'm a lighthearted person and I promise I don't bite. :3

Hey there! I'm a goat-obsessed female currently studying a BA in Geography, working as a transcriber for African migrants settling in Britain and spending what little time I have left at rugby training. I adore travelling and experiencing the obscure, weird and wonderful and enjoy encompassing what I learn into my writing. Although I don't have a lot of spare time left over for roleplaying, I adore throwing myself head-first into the fictional world of OCs and feels.

I am a girl in my mid-twenties that lives in the Midwestern United States. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Animal Sciences and currently work at a Veterinary Clinic. My husband and I have quite a few animals at home, including some cockatiels, 3 dogs, 4 aquariums ranging from 10 gallons to 75 gallons, and 2 Betta fish. As you can tell, it is pretty much a small zoo at my house. Some of my other hobbies include working and modding my Dodge Charger RT <3, drawing, fishing, and playing games. I am a really friendly person and always try to be as helpful as I can, so never be afraid to drop me a PM if you ever need anything C:

I'm a young woman, born in Colombia, but have lived in Denmark my entire life. I'm currently applying for the university to study German, while I wait for a pupil spot as a dog groomer. I got an Akita Inu dog named Silver, who I call my fuzzy bear <3 My hobbies are to draw and to cosplay. I go to conventions often, and uses a lot on time on planning my next cosplay. I'm obsessed with a Danish soda called "Squash", and loves to eat corn from a can too~ Feel free to drop me a PM if you got any question :>

I am a Canadian college student. I’m currently studying animation (3D) and hope to work for DreamWorks someday. I’m a writer and I love art, sometimes I will mix the two and make comics, I hope to have one of them published one day. When I’m not drawing, writing or at school, I’m hiding away on CS or playing with one of my two cats. I love all things fantasy, nerdy and I love watching cartoons.

User avatar

Hi there! I'm a young woman hailing from the little corner of the USA known as New Jersey. Outside of CS, some things I enjoy doing are reading and writing, listening to all kinds of music, watching TV, taking long walks, and playing Pokémon games. I have a love for history as well. My inbox is always open if you need help or just want to chat! I'm not the person to ask about trade fairness, but I should be able to help with most other site questions. Along with being a native English speaker, I am semi-fluent in German, so wenn ihr wollt, dürft ihr mir jederzeit auf Deutsch schreiben! I'm also a beginner with Russian.

User avatar

I'm Spotty, a Swedish woman in my mid twenties. Until recently I studied at university but now I'm on my way out into the real world. I love tea, I like animals and art and I have a general interest in science. I used to be a General Helper before I became a moderator so don't hesitate to PM me your questions.

Hello! I'm Vaas, a disabled twenty-something nonbinary folk living in Louisiana. I have a lot of pets, but my favourite is my kitty Percy. Don't tell the others! :P When I'm not spending time on CS, I'm usually playing video games, working on art, doing taxidermy, or cooking. I'm an oekaki mod and specialise in handling oekaki-related issues around site. If you ever need any help, or just want a friendly chat, feel free to message me! (:

Hello, I am a Turkish girl who lives in South East Asia. I have a love for art and enjoy messing around with as many different styles and mediums as possible, be it digital or traditional. I speak both English and Turkish although my Turkish can improve. One last thing you should know about me is that the Ğ in my username is silent. I bet you've been pronouncing my name wrong this whole time.

I am a college-bound student hoping to study elementary education along the West Coast of the U.S. It's been my dream since I was little to become a teacher, and possibly teach abroad. I'm also a Victorian era fanatic, Disney and Marvel lover, extreme roleplayer, avid dancer, and world traveler. Basically, a nerd with way too much time on her hands. Most days you'll find me glued to my computer watching the latest British TV show, or with my nose stuck in some extremely old book wishing I lived in an era without technology. However, I do like to use my computer to communicate with the lovely members of CS, so feel free to pop me a PM anytime!

Hello! I'm a German gal currently living in Finland with my significant other and hoping to get a job in game design or illustration at some point. I am horribly lazy and tend to forget about generally everything, but when I'm not busy procrastinating or sleeping, you'll usually find me drawing/designing cute and shiny stuff.

On CS I try to provide you guys with lots and lots of sparkly and bright pets as some might have already noticed; and while I'm not against a friendly chat most days, my PMs on here are disabled because I simply forget to reply too often and don't want to seem impolite.

Let's see... I guess I'm just some brazilian girl with an irrational love for biology, Sonic, dragons and a certain demonic cat called Billy... who is most likely either climbing my curtains or chewing my plushies as you read this. My interests involve stuff like cinema, cartoons, DC Comics, greek mythology, fanfiction and books. Writing is also a great passion of my life, so much I've been working on a book series project of mine for the past eight years. Getting it done and published one day is a huge dream of mine! Now, regarding my art, another of my massive passions, I'm a self taught artist who has been drawing since... forever! I specially love to plan up realistic species and headworld concepts. To me there's no better feeling than that of bringing your fantasy creations to life through lots of realism-based planning, writing and designing. The same for characters, since dealing with their personality and backstories through psychology is absolutely fascinating.

But oh well, I'd better stop before I babble about this all day XD. You're always free to toss me a PM, though. I love to chat and I swear my stupidity is not contagious.

I like to draw stuff!

Greetings! Do sit down and join me for a spot of tea while I regale about myself. I'm a british lady, born and bred. I've been working on CS since 2008 and was originally a site moderator. I changed to an artist sometime around 2010 because I was making a loooot of items for the site. My work on site now mainly consists of creating various items for pet dressup, I do so love to see fashionable dressups! I mostly lurk around the forums and clean up a little here and there, I also do not mind a casual chat, so feel free to pop over for a chat but bring some cake, alright?

Call me Ceru! I'm an American teenager who spends the majority of her time acting in local productions; I hope to someday make acting into a career. The rest of my days are spent playing Starbound, working on art, and trying to calm down my high-anxiety Shiba. I really love meeting new people and chatting with other community members, so feel free to shoot me a PM!

Like Tess and Nick I live in New Zealand. Tess and I are best friends in real life and have been since we were 12 or 13. I study English, Theatre and Linguistics at University while working as a librarian. I do lots of acting in my spare time and hang out with Tess when we were not doing assignments for Uni. Some of my interests include Japan, anime, Batman (hence my custom) and of course theatre, film and literature. Though I'm not actually a moderator don't be afraid to PM me because I can help out with any discrepancies you might have. I do a small amount of moderation but the moderators are so amazing at their job I'm hardly needed.

Hey there! I'm an American art college freshmen looking to major in illustration who misses her cats and dogs back at home.

I love having more friends to talk to, so if you want to chat or have any questions, just PM me!
