Animals should be locked up in your closet.
Which is where all mine go when I am not looking at them.

Did I mention I am going to be 53 in March and that the only animals I now have are several stuffed toys? Or, as they say in England, plushies. I like that term. I have mostly rabbits and mice.

I'm starting to collect Spice Mice.

http://www.spicemice.com /

They have Bush and Kerry
Bush is cute.

Okay, as a MOUSE, he's cute :D

Any other DUers have stuffed animals?

in another room so they can't hear me.

I bought a $150.00+ "Grunt" beanie and now it's practically worthless!

My favorite beanie was Patty Platypus.

I prefer not to think of all the time and money spent chasing them.

4. can't breathe!!!
No air...everything going black.. . :scared:

They can't breathe in there! Call PETSA! (people for the ethical treatment of Stuffed Animals)

My most expensive one is a squirrel. I like for them to look fairly realistic. Some of the European origin ones are amazingly realistic looking.

6. I have a Halloween black cat that screetches when you cross its path
This one looks pretty good and is quite capable of scaring people.

5. I have plushies out the ying-yang
When we moved, the movers boxed 2 huge boxes with nothing but stuffed toy animals.

I have a google (my prized plushie), pixar characters, disney characters, valentine plushies, "zoo" animals, "wild" animals, water animals,...more than I could possibly name. I also have Jamal, stuffed toy from Iraq. It's a children's show in the region; Jamal is the main character. Jamal is a camel, of course!

8. plushies out the ying yang
must be painful---

I have a Internet friend who sent me a picture of her Puss in Boots cat from Shrek she informed me she HAD to get one.

I have a couple of off-beat ones, like an otter, skunk, sugar something or other, just went blank on the name of it. A couple of mine make noises. All the spice mice either sing or talk :)

But NO! They're my babies!

My Babe toy also has a set of mice that came with him, but they don't sing. :(

10. whooooooo?
I saw some post where someone said someone looked like a particular species of owl, beautiful (despite their taste in food) ;)

I was trying to find a website that showed some, and came across this.

http://www.stuffemal.com/stuffe/stuffe.html :wow:

Time to hide my credit card from myself :)
