Ahhhhhhh. I, uh, umm... I might, I cannot. I eeeeeeeeeeeeee.
(You can fund this on Kickstarter if you want to see the whole movie made, which I think, obviously, you do.)
pets, taxidermy, kickstarter, furever, stuffed animals
Oh god, this is exactly what I think it is, isn't it.
OK - so, I have to say this makes me a bit uncomfortable. However, I'm not sure it's in a good way - a la Errol Morris' Gates of Heaven. It is a hard balance to strike i.e. amused sympathy.
I'm just sitting here at my desk silently screaming and waving my hands in the air and shaking my head.
Okay, just thinking about having my bunny stuffed and sitting on my living room table forever -- I CAN'T. Don't these people have family and friends to tell them JUST NO? I don't even know how people can emotionally handle keeping their dead animals in the freezer.
Well, I probably have no legs to stand on, no legs at all, because mines' ashes are in sake bottles sealed with champagne corks on a shelf in my bedroom which strikes some people as a. bit. too. much.
But, um, no.
Then there's this lady: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A15838-2004Jun4.html Her way, though grisly, makes more sense to me than taxidermy.
I just promised my cat that I would never do this to her.
I feel like I just watched an episode of Taxidermy Nip/Tuck. I am so disturbed.
Um you guys... I love my cats SO MUCH. I don't know if I won't be one of these crazy cat ladies, I really don't.
Like, they're all young, but I still worry about what I'm gonna do when they die and how I'm gonna deal and I don't think I will and I will turn into a crazy cat lady.
My cat is huge and has gorgeous, glossy black fur. I've always thought he'd make a great hat, or maybe a pillow.
(No, I'm not actually going to do this, although he really does have pretty fur. Plus, he'd totally eat my body without a second thought if I died and was the only food available, so...)
The fun starts at 1:40. The zeitgeist of a dead dog having his muzzle brushed as one would brush teeth is priceless.
