ryan and i bought this orange cat stuffed animal toy years ago at f.a.o. swartz in nyc. it sits in our master bedroom and predates leko. it's name is "rfu" which is another theatre term. (rfu is a remote focus unit used for focusing lights on stage when you're not near the light board and we used to joke that rfu stood for remote "feline" unit instead of remote "focus" unit.)
anyways . . . this has been in our room for years and noah "met" rfu for the first time recently and let's just say he was a fan. it was so cute how he held and cuddled rfu!
