They are as cute as the dickens! But being blessed with the thickest fur in all of the animal kingdom might actually be a curse, trappers having brought these wonderful creatures to the very brink of extinction. They are currently classified as endangered. One of the very few critters that uses tools, they are a hoot to watch when they lay a rock on their tummy (which serves as a built-in dining table) and crack clams against it.

Here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest U.S., we are blessed with both sea otters and their cousins, the river otters. In my opinion, between the two species there is no contest in the appearance department; sea otters are several times cuter than their landlubber relatives. I mean, what other animal sleeps holding hands with his homies, or paddles around on her back with her infant snuggled on her chest? Only humans, I venture.

This handpainted pillow measures 15" x 20" and is made of commercial all-weather fabric, so it will be happy on your sundeck, the bunk on your yacht, or just about anywhere else you'd like to use it. Plumped with a polyester fiberfill insert which can be removed for laundering. Cover may be spot cleaned, hosed off, or gently machine washed and air dried.

A happy customer gave the following unsolicited feedback: "Fell in love with this little guy online and now that he's at my home I don't want to leave it! Beautiful work, great communication -- I'm a fan." Thank you for the kind words, MD.

Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted on a small island north of Seattle, where everyone just loves otters!
