What EJ saw was not a soft toy but bootees for Kenggy. And EJ was promptly given a second similar soft toy when the idea was made known as Kenggy do not have two front paws.
EJ got down to work, cutting the boot off and trimming it a bit.
Not giving up easily, EJ tried a few times but could not convince the adamant Kenggy in accepting to wearing it.
So now these toys and the cut-out boot sit on the shelf as a symbol of an ex-colleague's friendship as well as non-acceptance of EJ's brilliant plans to shoe Kenggy!
Kenggy prefers and happily moves around as nature meant her to be.
