We live and work surrounded by a profusion of pets:
Leading the pack is our Maggie, an accidental pet duck who lives with us. She doesn’t know she is a duck, so life with her is always an uncharted and rather chaotic adventure.
Maggie is mother to our other ducks; George, her bodyguard, who never leaves her side. Sir Studly, a true gentleman, Sunny, by name and nature, and Beepbeep, our littlest, but with the loudest voice. And then there is Louis, a little white call duck that joined our family who adores cuddles and dried worms.
On the fur side, Chewie is our standard sized dachschund, and puts up with a lot!
Our cats are Gingembre or Gigi for short (no surprises she is our ginger), who doesn’t like sharing. She is mother to Lapsong Suchong (a grey tiger), our shy but playful girl, and Noisette (a tortoiseshell), who lives in a rosy world of her own making.
We’ve also looked after Chickens and Rabbits in years past. You may come across them as well in our animal antics archives.
A Gift for a Tale
Our Pet Posts are categorized somewhat, just to give some minor order to the chaos of living with this bunch. Maggie’s fan club will find her antics in Maggie, the Pet Duck. Our other pets and the variety of animals that join in our life can be read about in our Fur and Feathers posts.
And, if you are like us, and love all things animal, take a browse of our vintage Animal Lovers Gifts in our shop on Etsy. We keep our eyes open for anything lovely or unusual that relates to (all) animals. You never know what you may find, but if Maggie has any say, it would be mostly ducks. (It’s not, though there are quite a few.)
