I was born from a brown and white thread of 100% french angora
a multicolor tiny silk thread,
and as well as a 0.5# hook.

I'm 2"1/2 tall when I stand up.
I'm fully jointed with disks and cotter pins,
padded with mohair and some glass pellets.
My eyes are beautiful german glass eyes.
My nose and the claws of my paws are embroidered
from a pink cotton thread.
I'm wearing a necklace of african beads.

I am a small thing of ground,
I'm not born from the hands which mould,
from the fingers which knead,
I'm not too born from the fertile's pigments,
from the clay's lands, I'm not too born of the charcoal's blazes,
of the simple ovens of potters.
And yet, my soul was born from the memories of Africa,
of one's wild's land essences,
of one's delicious spices, of one's clayey ground.
From me, you can tell I'm a simple critter,
grown of sensation of earth.

He lives with Judy who adopted him.
