Jumper Animals, also known as jumpus animus in Latin:

They are shy little creatures which roam the British-urban environment, but can be lured in with a little ice-cream (choc chip or strawberries and cream ideally) or a nice cup of tea. This one likes watching Mythbusters and walks in the rain.

I’m sure I detect a glint of intelligence in those little brown eyes…

Also, if you have a left-over sleeve, you can turn it into a hottie cover (just sew up the end and decorate as appropriate):

As an experiment in learning to use my sewing machine this failed because the knit was too thick for the machine to do justice to. Also, I’m kind of tempted to make him a bow-tie.

Any ideas for a name?
