"Darcy Dancer" cat
"Darcy Dancer" catDarcy Dancer was my childhood cat. He was a Burmese Blue. He used to curl up on my feet at night, like a warming hot water bottle, hence why he is designed to be a curled-up fellow. He also loved playing dress-ups with my sister and I.

whaleWhen I was young, my mother went on all sorts of wildlife and wilderness adventures. One such adventure was following the migration of the Southern Right Wales along the Great Australian Bight. We had a poster of all the whales of the sea up in our family bathroom. Since then, I’ve always taken a great interest in these majestic creatures of the sea.

frenchie bulldog facesInspired by my French Bulldog, Fig, who is a tan pied. She was mischievous from the day we collected her and brought her home. Wouldn’t have it any other way! She also loves a good squeaky toy (so she doesn’t chew on my felt ones!) and a good o'l’ belly rub.

chickens
chickensI grew up on our family’s small hobby farm in southern Tasmania, in the Huon Valley. My parents are avid bird lovers, and had a assortment of chickens throughout my childhood, and to this day. We had all sorts of chickens, inlcuding Barnevelders, Spanish and Fluffy Bantum. We had guinea fowl, Cape Barren geese, peacocks & peahens, turkeys and the odd duck. I have fond memories of heading down the hill from home to the “chook house” to feed all the poultry some pellets, seeds and food scraps.

wombats with carrots
wombats with carrotsWhen I was growing up, we had the pleasure of raising two orphaned “pinkies” into teenage wombats. Each had sadly lost their mothers in clashes with cars on nearby roads to our property in the south of Tasmania. Our first wombat, Lucky, was a bit older (a joey, with fur) when he was rescued. My sister had to lift his deceased mother into the boot, off the road, to bring him home to my father, who then was able to cut Lucky out of his mother’s tightened pouch. Our next wombat, Pinkie, was named exactly that because she was so little when we got her - she had no fur and was a true “pinkie”. They each slept in a old boat hull in our bathroom, until they were old enough to transition outside to a fenced yard, with a nice dirt burrow. They followed us everywhere we went and just loved munching on carrots!
