Tell us a little about Ratty ...

‘Ratty’ is a Max and Tilly brand dog comforter. It was originally 2 shades of blue. There are other animals such monkeys, rabbits etc. but the particular one we are in search of is the dog. (I think we will be grateful for any of them actually). We don’t currently know if this was ever sold outside of Australia. Max and Tilly was owned by Bright Bots (where we originally purchased) and are no longer around. We have tried contacting them directly in which no real help was given, and we have tried online all with no avail. It was originally purchased in 2011 when Elijah was born and he has been attached to them ever since. He has had a few of these over the years but have slowly gone missing.

Can you tell us any specific details about Ratty - who made it, where it came from, etc

Max and Tilly Brand who was owned by Bright Bots – Bright Bots no longer exist. I have contacted the company in the past and no avail with information where to buy as they are no loner in existence.

Why is Ratty so important?

Elijah has anxiety. Ratty is very special to him and helps with his anxiety and sensory processing disorder. Elijah has a special way he plays with the knots on the comforter. Elijah finds comfort in Ratty and Ratty is taken wherever Elijah goes, especially in his high anxious situations.

How would you describe the current situation?

The current situation for ‘Ratty’ is he is on his last legs. We have re-sewn and re-sewn him again and again. Ratty won’t survive much longer.

It would mean the world to me if we can find 'Ratty'. I am in tears thinking about it.
'Ratty' is so much loved and it would bring so much joy to Elijah

Chances are none of our amazing Followers has one of these in a cupboard, but if you all share it, and those people share it too, and so on, someone down the line may well have one, and if they see the picture pop up in their feed they may well be able to help Elijah.

Liking and commenting is good too!
