Here is Chips the cat with his new toy. When I got the box with him in it back from the gallery, I noticed he had flattened out so much. He was back to the original shape of the soft toy. I tried various ways of pinching his legs together to make him stand up, but nothing worked. Then I got the idea of putting his front paws on a ball, but I could not find any of my big round wooden beads that I could cover with beads. While looking for the wooden balls, I did find a bunch of bells. So Chip got a new toy and is in a mailing carton for Dixie.
