Aby-a-Day – 1 June: Rory and Rudolf (Fashion Friday)

As my regular readers know, I am a big fan of Lisa Larson, especially her cats.


So, for my birthday, Björn managed to find me a Japanese Lisa Larson plush Rudolf!


I joke that it is clearly an Abyssinian; he’s brown, with clear banding.




Lorelai can’t quite decide how she feels about Rudolf.


It’s a funny thing, the way the Japanese have embraced Lisa Larson’s cats, and yet it isn’t at all. They have co-opted Finland’s Moomins to the point where I legit thought Moomins were Japanese before Sanna-Leena set me straight.


But the Lisa Larson obsession, especially her cats, makes complete sense. Lisa’s round, friendly cat faces are right up Japan’s alley.


A match made in heaven, one might say.


Don’t worry…no Lisa Larson Japanese cat plushies were harmed in the making of this post.
