Clyde, maybe

Does he look like a Clyde to you?  He does to me. But then, I never was that good at naming things.

In any event, he’ll be given a name once he arrives in England at his new home. I’ve never made a “stuffie” before, but couldn’t resist joining a cat stuffie swap. I actually cheated a bit on this one, as I had bought the pre-stuffed black cat shape at a “yard sale” at the local scrapbook store about a year ago. So I didn’t have to do any sewing or stuffing, thankfully. I just came up with the face and did a little embroidery to make “paws” on the end of his limbs.

My husband doesn’t understand the (literal) “belly button” at all, but he’s not nearly as cute without it.

PS: Now that I think about it, “Clyde” was the name of that annoying orangutan in that really bad Clint Eastwood movie, Every Which Way But Loose.  (“Right turn, Clyde!”) Perhaps it’s just as well that he’ll be getting a different name…

    His little paws look so dainty! I love him! Bonnie and Clyde came to my mind. It’s not such a bad name – it grows on you.

    I like Clyde; I think the name fits him. He is very cute. Cats have belly buttons too. One of my cats had to take chemo treatments in his belly button. Ooooch!

    This little guy is cute! And that belly “button” is way up on the cuteness scale!

    Ok…I do want to make a stuffed critter. I love this guy and his belly button!
