Congratulations on finding youself an ixtey! Probably about now you are questioning your sanity and judgement, and wondering what the world you have gotten youself into. Relax. The domestic ixtey is an affectionate, albeit astoundingly stupid little critter who will slowly but surely claim a piece of your heart. This blurb summarizes a few of the more important things that you need to know about this befuddling creature. It covers: basic behavioral characteristics; your ixtey's preferences; and other important information.

Compared with household pets, the ixtey's personality could be said to be somewhere between the dog and cat in overall behaviour. It is as demanding for attention as the dog, but is not as aloof and independent as the cat. Like the dog, it makes lots of noise and can be trained to come to her name. Unlike the dog, it does not have to be walked, is an active as a rock, and cannot learn most tricks due to its low IQ. Unlike the cat, it retains its playful, "kittenish" behavior all of her life.

In many ways, having an ixtey in your home is a lot like having a 2-year-old child. Put away the breakables, hide the small valuables, and put everything easily movable that you want to protect, up and out of reach.

It is a very well known fact that ixteys have shit taste in music. An ixtey would think otherwise, however, and would proclaim that they quite enjoy listening to k-pop (f(x), SNSD, Teen Top, SHINee, T-ara, 4minute), chiptunes (Demoscene Time Machine), christian rock (Matt Maher, JJ Heller, TobyMac) and videogame OSTs, thank you very much. ixteys also enjoy dabbling in fandoms of Harry Potter, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, etc. It is extremely touchy about beliefs, and is a born-again christian.

In its spare time, an ixtey can either be found playing flash games from jayisgames.com, or vegetating on the couch.

Use only fresh ixteys of the required size and recommended type. Do not throw an ixtey into the fire. Explosions may happen. Adult supervision is required, do not leave your ixtey with children for a long amount of time. Do not deprive of ice cream, fanfic, or witty banter. Failure to comply to any of these may result in your ixtey's spontaneous combustion.
