I'm so sorry, choie. I don't think that's silly at all.

My mom always used to say things like, "how do you think Mr. Bear feels with the covers over his face so he can't breathe?" and stuff like that that would make me feel guilty even though I knew Mr. Bear didn't need oxygen.
Once, in a toy store, she had told me I could pick out anything I wanted and I had my eye on a certain toy. But she picked up a stuffed dog and made it talk to me, "Oh please take me home, don't leave me here on the shelf" sort of thing, and of course then I had to take that dog or I'd have felt terrible about it. And I was plenty old enough to know better!

So I'm not laughing at you. I have a stuffed rabbit, 40-some years old, and I would be devastated if something happened to him.

I still have hopes that your animals may turn up...
