I'm Winkerbee, a red Kacheek from Roo Island, and it's so fabulous that you've come to see me today! Please make yourself at home; there's a really fluffy chair over there that I think you'll love. This site was originally started in August 2009 as Winkerbee's Pet Page... wow, it's been around forever. As you can probably tell from the title, this site is all about me!! You know, it really makes me sad that everyone can't have their own site... anyway, it's so nice to meet you!
Navigating the site
At the bottom of each page there are buttons that will let you go forward and backwards. (Nauseous yet?) If you want to go back to the beginning, there's a button down on the bottom left. You can also get to everything from the nifty table of contents.

Friends & Family
So, would you like a cup of tea? No? Well, I think you do, so here's a cup. And here's a napkin, because eating without a napkin is just... weird. Okay, you ready?
I've been alive since 2007, a long long time ago. My owner - his name is Chev - didn't name me after anything special. He says he just thought the name fit me. Like, what's a "winker bee"? I like my name regardless, though!
I live on Roo Island in a big bungalow with my two very best friends. Kianur is an ice Bori; he's bossy and a little too serious sometimes. He helps me cook and likes to go adventuring with me! My other best friend is Xeviport, who's a mutant Elephante. We rescued him from a creepy freak show in the Haunted Woods. He doesn't say much, but he's really gentle.
Snooky, my Babaa
Once upon a time, I didn't have a petpet. I would see other Neopets with petpets and I thought they looked fun. I asked Chev if I could have one, and he gave me some Neopoints! I decided I would get a Babaa, because they're soft and squishy and go "bbbbbaaaaaaaaa". I took the ferry to Neopia Central, and I started looking for a Babaa that I liked. But none of the stores had any that seemed to like me! I felt like crying, and I was ready to give up and go home. Then I went into a dark little store on a back street, and there was this sweet little Babaa looking up at me and baa-ing. I knew he was the one!! I took him home and named him Snooky.
Snooky sleeps in his own little corner in my neohome. He follows me around, and sometimes even goes to bed with me! Sometimes Snooky can be sneaky, though; I have to keep an eye on him or he'll start eating all the plants in the yard, or worse, he'll nibble on the bamboo furniture. I love him a lot anyway!
A long time ago, Chev and I went searching for a place to build a classic Neohome. That was before they were called "classic". We went all over Neopia to find the right place. We decided we wanted a house somewhere where it wasn't too cold or too hot and where we weren't in danger of falling through clouds or drowning. We finally chose Roo Island, because it has a merry-go-round! Everyone should live near a merry-go-round, don't you think?
The house had only one room originally, and it was quite small. The furniture was also extremely mismatched, which drove me crazy! We had more rooms built on, though, and we filled them with all kinds of matching furniture. I got to pick out everything! I finally had a real kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom.
My favorite room is the kitchen! Kianur does some of the cooking, but he hates baking, so that's what I do. It can be messy sometimes, though... once I tried making fudge. That was horrible.
My favorite things to make are spaghetti, fruitcake, tacos, and stir-fry! But I don't like making pancakes. Those are messy. :(
Family & Friends
For a long time, I lived in my Neohome all by myself with only Snooky to keep me company. However, one day I went to what I thought was a carnival. Turns out it was a freak show... like, an actual freak show! I didn't think those really existed. All of the "exhibits" looked really depressed and lonely, and I wanted to help one of them somehow. I still don't know how we managed to help Xeviport escape, but he now lives with me in my Neohome! He is very quiet and emo but he's so nice. Here is a photograph of him!
One day while I was fishing on the dock in a village on the coast of Roo Island, I bumped into an ice Bori who had just gotten off a ship that was docked. I hastily apologized, and he asked if there was any places where he could stay the night. I said I did and took him to my house. He liked me, and I liked him, and right then and there he decided to stay! His name is Kianur; he's very leaderish (is that a word?) and makes wonderful mashed potatoes.
More great friends
My Favorite Games
My favorite game is Kacheek Seek. It's one of the oldest games in Neopia; it was originally called Badeek Seek and was featured in the original game room. In the game, a Neopet hides somewhere in a scene, and its owner has to find it! It can get very hard, but it's very fun. Chev likes Kacheek Seek too (thank goodness), so we play it a lot.
My second-favorite game is also very old. It's called Gormball, and it's very easy to play! A group of players tosses around a gormball, which is just like a normal ball, except for the fact that it blows up randomly. That's why you should always bring a towel with you. If you're holding the Gormball when it explodes, you're out! The last person left wins.
The Gormball players are, starting from the top right (going clockwise): Ember the faerie, Farvin III the alien Aisha, Gargarox the mutant Grundo and proprieter of Grundo's Cafe, Brian the red Scorchio, Thyassa the purple Chia, Kevin the Korbat, Ursula the Usul, and Gargarox the COOL Grundo.
Dr. Sloth used to be one of the players, but he had to leave due to *cough* unknown reasons. I wonder what those could be... anyway, he was replaced by the character we know as Kevin the Korbat.
Another one of the Gormball characters is Thyassa the purple Chia. He's actually a real Neopet, believe or not. (Go look him up in the search bar!) As a matter of fact, he was the first Neopet ever created. His owner is Donna, one of the co-founders of the Neopets website. (Look at all those trophies he has! *is slightly jealous*)
Did I mention I'm a total Gormball nerd? Oh wait, you say you figured that out already? Was it that obvious? :O

I live on Roo Island, a mini-world located 30 miles east of Neopia Central. 95% of the island's 275,000 inhabitants are Blumaroos, so it's quite rare for me to ever see another Kacheek! Roo Island is a very happy place, which is why I like living there.
My favorite place in the whole wide world is the merry-go-round on Roo Island. He says I nag him to take he there a lot... maybe I do, but it's so fun to ride the Unis as they go up, and down, and around! I could go forever, and sometimes I almost do. Thank goodness that the fee to ride is so cheap. Somehow, between the merry-go-round and Dice-a-Roo, I don't think Roo Island has quite caught up with the current state of inflation. Oh well.
King Roo is the wise ruler of Roo Island! He's also famous for something else - his favorite game, Dice-A-Roo! It's a very fun (and cheap) game that can be played by going to his eccentrically shaped palace at the center of Roo Island. Dice-A-Roo is the island's official game, but unfortunately, you have to be thirteen or over to play it. Oh well...
Roo Island's creepiest and most mysterious inhabitant is the elusive Count von Roo. He is very old and very evil, so don't talk to him, like, ever. The count sleeps during the day and comes out only at night to play Deadly Dice.
I have tons of neat clothes. I currently have about 180 items in my closet! Here are some of my favorite outfits:
|Avast! Antivirus!||Once upon a time~||Yummy... I think?|
|The basic package.||With great power...||Gernumbli gardensi|
|Warriors, proceed!||Bbbbbrrr....||Too much pie.|
|Jingley bells~||The P3 invasion...||Not eggs, NEGGS!|
One time I made the mistake of bringing home a pile of dung... can you say EEEEEEWWWWWWWW? Even after I flushed it down the toilet my closet smelled like sewage for years. Learn from my mistake: poop is not a fashion accessory.
My favorite item is my bone necklace! Chev bought it for me with free neocash from a site event (or something totally random like that). Isn't it spiffy? I wear it all of the time!
I was painted Christmas during the Month of Celebrating in Y11! Thankfully, when the holidays were over, Chev painted me back to my favorite color, red.
Oh my, I forgot about that old picture... eek.
I'm a Kacheek, and Kacheeks are just plain awesome. We are fluffy and cute and have long tails. I mean honestly, who doesn't want a tail?! A long time ago Kacheeks were called Badeeks and wore sunglasses. Maybe the sun was brighter back then?
I've always been a Kacheek, and for most of that time I've been red, because it's my favorite color. I've had chance encounters with some other red Kacheeks over the years, like the former proprietor of Neopets Jr., the lost Kacheek in the game Ghost Bopper, and the old proprietor of the Luck & Chance section in the Games Room.
Red Kacheek CookiesThings needed:
- Recipe for cookies
- Ingredients called for in the cookie recipe
- Red Frosting
- Black/white frosting
- Red sprinkles/jimmies (optional)
Make the cookies like you would normally, but before you put them in the oven, shape the dough to look like Kacheek's head.
When the cookies are done baking, frost them with red frosting. Use the black/white frosting to draw eyes, a mouth, and a black nose on the cookies. If you would like to, you can lightly sprinkle red sprinkles/jimmies on top of the frosting.
When you are done, put the cookies in a cookie jar!
Sometimes Chev takes me to a photographer's shop, and I get my picture taken. I have to sit terribly still, otherwise the picture doesn't turn out right.
My Favorite Places
I think that, hypothetically, it would be really awesome if there was a land where everything was made of jelly! There could be jelly Neopets, jelly petpets, jelly buildings, jelly everything. Not like any of this exists, though. Now, what would be really neat would be if there was a giant jelly right in the center of town, and everyone could take a chunk out of it whenever they wanted! If only it all existed. It's so squishy I'M GONNA DIE!!!
Sometimes I go to Brightvale and visit its popular bookstore, Brightvale Books! The store looks small from the outside, but inside, it if stuffed full of the best books ever. I really like sitting in a corner there and reading for hours and hours. Snooky just curls up next to me and falls asleep. I never want to leave, but I can't stay forever. I love reading so much, though!
Finally, there's a very special place that I visit every day in the month of December: the Advent Calendar! It's a neat place in the land of Terror Mountain where they give out holiday-themed items to anyone who makes the trek to Happy Valley. I get lots of snazzy wearables from it, and my winter wearables collection is getting out of hand. But who says no to free stuff?!
