This odd little guy is a "Quoll," an endangered species indigenous to Australia, New Guinea, and Tasmania. I saw (spotted?) him on Cute Overload:

Okay, so it's the blankie that's polka-dotted, not the cat (below). This is "Olivia," the cat who belongs to Lovely Daughter #1. A friend of my daughter's Photoshopped in the war paint:
Olivia, her polka-dotted blankie, and LD#1 are leaving for NYC in a few days. If they see any cute spotted animals in Manhattan, I hope they send me a picture.
