#18, it's a plastic replica of an antique phone, plastic 'wood', and plastic brass, etc.

#8 is a knife. A dagger has two edges, with the handle centred between both.

#13 Is better know as a Tabby or perhaps it could be a house cat. It appears to be of feline species and the rocking chair is in a house. My best guess is that it is a house cat.
