Well THAT resolve didn’t last long…

Back in March, when I wrote about my meerkat collection which had expanded quite suddenly, thanks mainly to several of them gifted to me by Eileen and her hubby, I said I wasn’t going to get any more although if I could find Ayana as Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” at a reasonable price I might be persuaded to add just one more to the family.
Well I did find Ayana as Belle not long afterwards and she joined the meerkat family on April 2nd. That really was supposed to be the last one but last week, looking at them all lined up on top of the long wall unit in the living room, I thought that as I had Elsa from Frozen and Belle from Beauty and the Beast I really should get their ‘other halves’. A search of ebay came up trumps and Oleg as the Beast arrived on Thursday with Oleg as Olaf from Frozen arriving yesterday plus a very cute extra one, Oleg as BB-8 from Star Wars. All of them are new, obviously from good homes, and they all have their certificates
Ayana as Belle
Oleg as Beast
Oleg as BB-8
Oleg as Olaf
Elsa and Olaf
Belle and Beast
The official full collection is a total of 19 meerkats and I now have fourteen of them. Are these my final ones or will there be more? The jury’s out on that one, although I do rather like the look of Sergei as Star Wars’ Obi-Wan Kenobi…

  2. Well, of course I had to go and look on Ebay after you told us about one you don’t have . . . there are quite a few Star Wars Sergei 🤩

    Collections have a nasty habit of not stopping until you have an entire set!

    1. I like the look of the Obi-Wan Kenobi meerkat but I’m not too keen on the Luke Skywalker one, it looks a bit plain. Actually I’m surprised that certain company hasn’t produced more of these things – an ET one would be nice 🙂

  3. Live ones? My back garden isn’t big enough, although if it was I would have a lion, a tiger and a cheetah 🙂 An enclosure with some live meerkats might be nice though…. 🙂

  4. As much as I would love some real ones and it isn’t illegal to keep them meerkats aren’t meant to be kept as domestic pets even in an outdoor enclosure as their needs are complex and they don’t do well in a domestic situation. My other alternative is to go and live in the Namib desert 🙂 🙂

  5. That is a great collection! You should finish the team of mancats I honestly have never seen any but I will certainly keep my eye open for you. Maybe they have different ones in Massachusetts!

  6. I don’t think you would find any in your country as these were limited editions sent out by a British insurance company to customers who bought car insurance through their website. They stopped after 19 meerkats and now do a 2-for-1 deal on cinema tickets lasting for a year. All mine have come from charity shops or have been given to me though these latest ones have come from ebay.
