Birthday Marcus and Gotcha Taylor




Yesterday, November 6, was a special day here.  We quietly celebrated Marcus's 3rd birthday and Taylor's first Gotcha Day. 

It's hard to believe Marcus is all grown up now.  He still races around excitedly and screeches like a young pup.  And Taylor, who was a few months old when she arrived, is still petite and dainty. 

Taylor was here nine months before she gave such a tiny mew we all thought we imagined it.  She purrs up a storm but she isn't one for idle chatter.  However, last month Jan took her to the vet for a rabies vaccination and she rattled her carrier bars and screamed bloody murder!  The moment the carrier door was opened, she marched out of it  muttering threats of retaliation.  We hope they were idle threats.  Jan is our chef and pooper scooper.  We need her in one piece.

Marcus ... well, you all know Marcus.  With Sam gone, Marcus is our resident ham.  He's also a photobomber, a troublemaker, a jack-in-the-box, an attention seeker, and occasionally a sweetheart.

Those two have such different personalities, and we love them both. Perhaps one day Taylor will talk more and Marcus will scream less. 

Happy Gotcha Day, Taylor!  And Happy Birthday, Marcus! 

From all of us Funny Farmers.
Merci, Cyndi, Percy, Buddy, Rusty, Micah, Marcus & Taylor - and Jan
