Now turn over this page and we'll come to another feely picture. This time it's my mum. (Pause) She's sitting facing the binding and looking straight at us. (Pause) She's the same colour as me but her fur isn't so spiky. Feel all over her body. There're no spiky bits sticking out, except perhaps for the end of her tail. (Pause) Let's start with her head at the top. (Short Pause) She has two round ears. (Short Pause) Two big eyes, (Short Pause) and a big flat pink nose. (Short Pause) Below you can just feel her pink tongue. I think she's licking her lips. (Pause) She has chocolate brown fur just like me, except for inside her ears and under her chin these are creamy coloured.
