    When I was in my 60s I saw an adorable stuffed cat for sale that I fell in love with. It was so realistic. I changed my mind about buying it when I was told it was made out of rabbit fur. Oh well, my live cat is the real thing.

    Your Teddy will miss you Micheal but I’m sure he’ll understand

    You don’t throw the Teddy away. He just doesn’t go on all of the trips with you anymore. He sits at home and waits like a good buddy does. I still have ALL of my Teddies.

    When I was 6 my father brought me a stuffed dog from NYC. He immediately became indispensable to me. Flash forward over 50 years and I still have him. He’s barren of fur, slightly moth eaten, missing one eye, but I would never throw him away.

    I have read in several places in the past when those “rabbit” fur, life size (almost) cats were in all the gift places, that they were in China and many (I suppose not all) were made of real Chinese cat fur. A lot of stores stopped selling them when it was pointed out. I saw a striped tabby fur one once and looked it over. The fur cover was not pieced. How many “tabby” colored rabbits do you know?

    The Chinese also use real dog fur on some of their stuffed toys. My experience is similar to yours. Once the source of the fur was pointed out, the stores stopped selling them.

    When my grandson, “K,” was barely toddler age – maybe fifteen to eighteen months – his beloved stuffed Elmo, which had been in near-mint condition, suddenly got so disgustingly, irremediably nasty, that we secretly threw him out and I bought one just like him at Toys “R” Us. I got home, and handed the new Elmo to K. He took it, and in one lightning quick, professional motion, whipped it over onto its back and inspected it closely. Must have been a molecule out of place somewhere.
