What is this?

This turned up at a relative’s house, where I was showing Kiddo#4 various stuffed animals and saying what they were. “This is a dog!” “This is a cat!” “This is a fish!” “…What is this?”

Here are my choices:

  1. Walrus
  2. Pig
  3. Rabbit
  4. The result of an unholy union between any of the above.

Or, come up with your own.

My Patient Husband came into the room in response to Kiddo#4’s giggles (“What is this? What is this?”) and he couldn’t figure it out either. As he went back down the hall, I crooned, “I love you, werepig!”

Help me out here. Enlighten me: What is this thing?

    Looks almost like a bunny to me, except the ears aren’t long enough…

    A gopher!

    I was thinking hippo until I saw the paws, but cat does seem most likely.

  5. Liz says:

    I like werepig. Or cat. 🙂

  6. To me it looks like a bunny. The ears are rather short but that only means that this particular bunny is unique. A rebel 😉

    It could be a puggle, except for the ears. Is it something which fell out of a Patricia Piccinini exhibition? Or a souvenir from such?

    Speaking of cats, have you seen this video from “Hyperbole and a Half”? http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/08/cat-safety-propaganda.html
