Remember when you were a kid and had a stuffed animal? Maybe it was a dog, a bear, or even a lion.  Whatever the animal, this stuffed friend hung out with you while you took a nap, or acted as a partner in crime when you tried to scale the pantry shelves to get at the cookies. Hey, maybe it even still does.

As it turns out, humans are not the only ones that have a special relationship with a plush toy or two. Many animals, such as cats and sloths, like to snuggle with toys to satisfy the instinct for warmth and safety that is ingrained in them from birth.


Timo here is no exception. Whether he is cuddling up for a nap or rolling on his back with a cuddly St. Bernard for a little playtime, it is obvious that this guy has some real affection for his stuffies.
