It's a small flower so I don't think you'd be able to cuddle it - lol! They are nice and furry though.....

I just watched a programme about Ozzie vets & how they are caring for the animals hurt by the bushfires. A male Kanga had been caught in the flames & they showed his paws close up so I know what I'm talking about!
It really is an amazing plant ... furry,colourful & pretty!

This is lovely and I've seen it sold as a house plant in UK. Never tried it though.
