we're going to go with--the last shreds of her parents' sanity.
I'm guessing that Emily is looking for Oscar!
My guess... kitty!
Oscar? What flexibility!!!
lol! so cute! my guess would have been cat as well....
some sort of dried (aka old) food that has fallen back there - a raisin or piece of cracker perhaps?
Thanks for the guesses everyone. I guess I threw out a softball because several people correctly guessed that poor Oscar had retreated back there after another "hug" from Emily that left him a few hundred kitty hairs shorter. Grandma Evonne will soon be receiving a card, courtesy of Emily herself.
