My name is Rachelle, but most people know me as DeviCat. I’m a self taught digital illustrator, full time Twitch Partnered broadcaster, and part time video creator on YouTube. Here, we encourage the ideals of positive community through creativity and determination.
The title “DeviCat” has a whole history to its creation. It started as a nickname for a cat character I had to animate for a school project. When I decided to start streaming on Twitch, I wanted a username that wasn’t my real name, so I decided to use “DeviCat” instead as my pseudonym. To this day, some people still joke and think it means a “devil cat”, others take it to a deeper meaning and refer to “Devi” as “goddess.” Myself? I just think it sounds cute!
This is my husband, Robert, who works behind the scenes to help make this stream be able to run full time and managing the community.

Take Root & Dream
This icon, with the flowers and the branches, is the representation of the evolution of my dream as an artist and as a person. It symbolizes to let your dreams bloom into the beautiful flower they were meant to be. No matter how much we may change and grow, it’s important to reflect on our roots to appreciate who we are now.
“I believe everyone has the potential to not only do something amazing, but the ability for compassion to themselves and those around them.” - DeviCat
A Little Background Of Our Roots
I was given the opportunity to start streaming full time back in May of 2015 because of my husband, Robert. Back then I was going through major life chapters; my dad had passed of cancer in March of 2014 and during this time frame I found myself to be fighting symptoms of PTSD from past verbal abuse. Originally, before I started on Twitch, my healing began with writing blogs on this website, taking dance lessons, doing odd little jobs like house sitting, and watching a lot of Day9TV (Mostly Walking), Markiplier, and ManlyBadAssHero before I was introduced to the wonderful world of Twitch. And even when I began doing this, I had no idea what I was doing. We started from the ground up as a tiny variety channel, knowing no one, my husband working his day job to help take care of us. And over the course of the past few years we’ve moved provinces, got married, improved our quality of content, and over all evolved into professional full time content creators. Our motivation comes from wanting to inspire others to work through their personal obstacles by setting a positive example ourselves.
To this day, Robert now works alongside me at home to help manage this. It’s a team effort, be it with Robert and myself, our friends and this community. We cannot thank you enough for these opportunities, and every day we are doing our best to give back and pay your kindness forward.
Thank you for believing in us.
