As I've mention before I do want to get a plushy made with Jacob's feathers once I get enough of them. Only question is, can I legally send feathers/down feathers from Canada to USA? I tried to google it but couldn't find any info on it.
Considering people ship down clothing and pillows all the time, I don't see why it would be a problem.

I had an idea the other day... I could make a plushy with a little zipper so you could fill it with feathers as you collect them... My husband thought people might not like having a zipper on their plushy, but I thought if it was a small/less visible kind maybe... Just a thought.

He promptly adopted him and perched him on his large TV monitor (big screen for old eyes).

It's really great because they've never met Cairo in person before - only over video calls and Cairo loves listening to my mum speak their language (both of them grew up speaking/hearing Malay). So Mouse sending photos of placing the feathers inside, then my parents receiving the plushies with Cairo's feathers inside made it really special for them.
You can thank my husband for the idea of sending pictures of the feathers going in. He suggested it and I thought it was a great idea... My idea was to tuck them into where the heart would be, that seemed special to me.

I'm SOOOOOO glad the Cairo plushy was a hit! Thank you so much for the kind words!
