I have many, many toys, but I just got a new toy from The Snow Leopard Trust that is extra-special. I first read about this toy from my friends Elmo, Maurice and Pixie. This special mousie was handmade in Mongolia! I think that might be much farther away than even California.
The Snow Leopard Trust was founded in 1981, and is the largest and oldest organization working solely to protect the endangered snow leopard and its Central Asian habitat. Here is a picture of a beautiful snow leopard. Photo credit: Photo by Dennis Conner. Courtesy of Snow Leopard Trust.
Here is the tag that came with my new mousie toy. You can click to biggify if your eyes are No Good.And he does not mind when I play rough.
I want to make sure he does not run away!
Here is some more stuff about this toy. He's made of real sheep's wool!
The website said that when I play with this toy, I am helping to protect my big cat relatives in Central Asia! This makes me feel proud. I also read this:Here is a link to the Toy Mouse Mini, in case you want one for yourself.
With your purchase of these adorable cat toy mice, you are supporting herders who live throughout the remote regions of Mongolia, helping them get the much needed food, medicines and clothing for their families that they haven't been able to afford. As part of the program, these empowered participants work together to help in the conservation of snow leopards in their region, making a huge difference in the survival of this species.
