Lynettea tells me this is a bear from Peru. It normally sits on its special Seagrass Chair in the kitchen.
If you want to sit in the chair you need to nurse the bear. "Which can make you feel more relaxed," she says.
I didn't feel relaxed having my photo taken with the bear. It was rather a nuisance and I ended up sitting on its hind paws.
A pity Lynettea has cut off the tip of my tail in this photo.
Can you see the extraordinarily alert expression in my eyes?
