I had to post the full description for this one because it's quite cute: I'm a 100% wool crocheted and felted rat. I'm around 8 inches (20cm) in height. I'm sandy brown in color. I know I have a big bucked tooth, but I promise I won't gnaw through anything. Actually, I'm kind of sensitive about my tooth. I have a long rat tail and I'm very lovable.
