About Kelsea

Kelsea is an upbeat, curious sea otter with a love of taking selfies. She's an explorer who aspires to one day be like Charles Darwin. She came to Austin after her home in Alaska became polluted in an oil spill. She hopes to return to Alaska one day, but for now she will continue to reside in Austin and pursue her interests in photography, biology, and the intricacies of inter-SA relationships.

With a little help from our friend Sara from GirlsGuild (typing is particularly challenging for Kelsea given her very short limbs), she will be fielding tough questions from the stuffed animal public in her column, "The Spill". She'll dispense inciteful advice on myriad subjects, from love and relationships to careers and SA health concerns.

If you are a stuffed animal in need of answers, you can submit your questions here: kelsea@thesarf.org

Q.
Dear Kelsea,

I’m visiting NYC with my living companion in a few months, and I’m very excited to visit all of the art museums there (MOMSA, The Googlyheim, Snuggle Harbor…). I’m not as culturally-informed as I’d like to be, so I’d love to do some research before I go! Who are your favorite SA artists?

The Spill: Beauty Before Age?

On 07, Mar 2014 | In News, The Spill | By Kelsea

Q.
Dear Kelsea,
I’m an older SA and I’m just not as stuffed as I used to be. I’m sagging in all the wrong places. How do you feel about reconstructive surgery for purely aesthetic reasons?
