They're changing guards at Buckingham Palace - to Meerkats ! I've knitted a tiny 7 inch tall (18cm) meerkat and dressed him as a Royal Guard for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012.

He wears a bright red scarlet tunic jacket with shiny silver buttons and white belt, his charcoal black uniform trousers have a matching scarlet stripe down the sides, and to crown it all of course he wears a fluffy busby - or is it a bearskin ? I can never remember which is which!

His headpiece is secured by a silver coloured chain chin strap.

Arms legs and tail are wired, so he can stand to attention or salute or indeed take up any pose you like. What do *you* need to be guarded?

Ideal to keep watch over your household at night, especially if you've been baking. Ready to ship

Niftyknits meerkats are all handknitted by me, to my own design and pattern, and come to you with a signed certificate of authenticity.
