I found this

My sister found this
at a friend's house; she wants to know what it is.
If I had to guess, I'd say it's part of a breast pump (with a little milking stool inside), but that seems ridiculous. Anyone else?

What is this thing my cat brought to my porch? http://i.imgur.com/cejZcGe.jpg
It appears to be something between an animal fetus and organ. When I turned it over it looked the same on the other side. There were no visible eyes/mouth/features. It was larger than a quarter and there was no blood present. A possum visits regularly, and the area has many moles, birds, and raccoons.

on DVD, only to become entranced with this particular object
, which I've made a screenshot of. [more inside]

What is this
? Spotted in a Goodwill, with no documentation or package. The smushed-ball thing is metal, and the cable is very flexible. The base is plastic.
