We were pretty determined not to start selling dog toys - then this meerkat came along and stole our hearts!
This soft toy is suitable for dogs who play gently - and its cuddly natures makes it an ideal bedtime partner!
Measuring 27cms (10") in height, the meerkat is machine washable (but don't spin dry).
While you're here, how about a bit of natural history? The meerkat, which has an average life span of from 12 to 14 years, is a small mammal belonging to the mongoose family and lives in various parts of Africa - the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, the Namib Desert in Namibia and south-western Angola, and in South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a "mob", "gang" or "clan" which will usually contain about 20 meerkats; some larger family groups can have 50 or more members. Meerkats forage in a group with one 'sentry' on guard duty for usually approximately an hour, watching for predators while the others search for food (digging through sand for, primarily, insects - but they'll also eat lizards, snakes, scorpions, spiders, plants, eggs, small mammals, millipedes, centipedes and, more rarely, small birds). The meerkat standing guard makes peeping sounds when all is well. If the meerkat spots danger, it barks loudly or whistles.
