The care and feeding of the animals.

The zoo at Windy Willows was full of strange and exotic beasts. Sir Winslow had taken care to ensure that each one felt comfortable in their new surroundings. He had the help of his family and staff to make sure every animal was well looked after. The children each had found a favorite creature when they were young and dedicated all of their spare time to feeding, grooming, and playing with them.

Rocky Raccoon

Rocky Raccoon

While he is not a new design, I have never had him for sale on any of my sites before. My dad asked for a raccoon fairly early on and I made one for him. That pillow sits in a child's rocking chair in my parents' bedroom. As a side note, the chair was made for him by his grandfather, so it’s pretty special.

Pretty sure I deleted those photos...
