Thoughts from our critters

I thought it was time for you, Dear Reader, to meet the house critters of Marsh Farm. Our little abode is the domain of quite a brood. We have 1 dog, 2 cats and 2 rabbits that roam our rooms, so let’s meet them.

Meet Max

Max came to us on my birthday in our first year here at Marsh Farm. As best we can tell, he is a beagle jack russell mix or Jackabea. We got him from a friend of friend and he was 7 months old when he came to us. He very much has a jack russell personality. He’s full of energy and a total cuddle monster. He’s super friendly and just a bit whiny when he doesn’t think he’s getting the attention he deserves. We love him to bits and can’t imagine life without him.


Meet Jack and Charlie

You have to meet these two fluffkins together because they are brothers and came to us together. These came to us from our neighbor kids. They were the last two of a litter that their free range cat had. Everyone said we should keep both of them so they would have a playmate….great idea. They certainly are a handful and there are many days that I remind them that it is a good thing they are cute.

Charlie is the one with orange spots. He is so cuddly. Snuggling is his favorite. He loves to be petted and will be the first one to jump in your lap. His favorite toy is anything circular. Hair ties and canning jar rings are the best. His favorite way to cause chaos is to push things off the counter (despite being told he’s not allowed to go up there).


Jack is the one with darker spots. His idea of cuddling is to lay on the floor next to the couch. He LOVES boxes…like really loves boxes. He takes no crap from Max and will only tolerate a little bit of holding. His favorite way to cause chaos is to sneak into rooms he’s not supposed to be in. He’s our most expensive critter as he swallowed a needle and thread from an antique sewing box and needed emergency surgery.

These two may cause a lot of chaos but I love them so much and they did make our furry family more complete.

Meet Wabbit and Lucy

Our two rabbits are rescue rabbits. Both were found in the park I work in. Someone dropped them off (please never do that). I couldn’t resist bringing their fluffy faces home.

Wabbit is a giant grey rabbit. I found him near a stream when I was out with school kids. He is a sweetheart. He is gentle with other animals and loves to be scratched behind the ears. Wabbit lives in our laundry/ utility room and has been known to help with laundry and any plumbing jobs in his domain. I do love this rabbit.


Lucy was found with 7 other rabbits and few months after Wabbit. Based on her siblings found with her, I guess that she is related to Wabbit somehow and was dropped off by the same people. She is a beautiful lop. She lives in our office/ studio. When she gets hop around time she loves to hop around ….literally. She loves hopping around you in circles. She is a mischief maker and likes to chew on things including rugs, shoes, and vacuum cords. She is a sweetheart and takes no crap from the cats when they sneak into her room. She is a great addition to our family.


So that is is our loveable furry family at the moment. They make life fun and certainly make Marsh Farm a home.
