Pick the Animal!

Hi fellow crocheters!

Earlier, I posted a sneak peek of my 'Coney Island' bear.  I've been calling him that because the colorful skein of Lionbrand's Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® yarn that I used is named 'Coney Island'!

Well, I loved how much character the colors gave him, so I decided to go with another ball of Lionbrand's Thick & Quick®!  Here's what I used:

Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® Yarn Stripes - Coney Island - 612 

Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® - Hudson Bay - 610

Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® - Fisherman - 99

With 'Hudson Bay', I present to you this gorgeous, rainbow-colored little critter!  I say "critter" because I don't know which animal to make him into yet!  As I'm getting ready to begin crocheting the ears of this new doll, I'm feeling like I'm at a fork in the road.  Since its body is a little more petite than the bear, it'd probably be sensible to make an animal that would be smaller in size than a bear.

Presently, I'm thinking of either a bunny rabbit 🐰 or a cat 🐱! 

Which would be your pick?

If you have any other animal suggestions, I'd love to hear them as well!  Definitely open to ideas, here!

Thank you so much in advance for helping me with this selection!
