It's getting harder for me to sell at FurCon, but I may be able to do next year's.

I think Dark Natasha got this one.

I really like this, but I'd probably end up breaking it by making it 'talk'. :giggle:

It sold almost immediately at Further Confusion.

Break it with 'talking'? Probably. For a lot of talking, it would need a springy hinge, and maybe be on a staff (or at least a stick) with a lever. Hmmm. There are possibilities....

No surprise there, it's nice.

I don't know how big bobcats are- I thought I'd just put my fingers in it somehow.

Then we'd travel around putting on Sunday school shows for small children...:giggle:

This is a large bobcat, the skull is about 5-1/2 inches long. I think it would be possible to hold it and manipulate the jaw, just using one hand. But it would likely be awkward.

I have a friend who does magic and puppet shows for children. I suspect he would not use Bob, The Dead Cat. :giggle:
