When I was a little girl my favorite toy - my comfort toy - was a stuffed animal named Blue Cat. I didn't realize that there was actually a Blue Cat I and Blue Cat II until I was in my teens when my parents told me that BCI had to be tossed after a childhood hospitalization. Very Velveteen Rabbit-esque.
Blue Cat II is still with me - she lives on my bureau. And sure, now she is grey, she has no face, and all her fuzz has been loved off, but I still have a thing for that stuffed cat. She still smells like my childhood and brings back memories of eyelet cotton sheets and a blue gingham coverlet.

The only thing is, I don't know if I can give Greta I to my nephew. I have kinda fallen in love with her. Would a four-year old treasure her forever and ever? (Possibly.) Would she be loved as much as I love her? (Doubtfully.) So, I think there will have to be a Greta II that can go live down in Virginia. Greta I is going to hang out with Blue Cat II.
