Wife and I have been discussing this for quite some time. When this guy goes...



I want to take him to the taxidermist and have him stuffed. I gave this cat to my wife for Valentine's Day 1997, he was 2 months old. He's a fixture in our lives. Can't imagine not having him around. So I want him curled up on the couch or in a chair forever.

She just doesn't think it is right.

So what say you?

I voted "just eat it"


Seriously, I wouldn't want a stuffed pet. A trophy buck is one thing, a house cat is another thing altogether

"More hay Trigger?"

"No thanks, Roy. I'm stuffed."

First clone the pet so you can build a coffee table with the matched pair...

I personally think that's a pretty odd thing to do. I didn't stuff my grandma when she died

Your choice though.

When he dies, bury him.

Why not mummify your little friend? Seems classier than stuffing it.

I just bury them, but whatever floats your boat.

I'd have it tanned, and when you get enough dead pets, you can make one really bitchin' coat.

Um, those prices.... obviously I'm in the wrong line of work.

Freeze drying is where it is at.

Why not just get the head stuffed and mounted? That way you and the wife could still preserve your memories and it would be a lot cheaper than having the whole damn cat stuffed.

It seems very strange to me. You enjoyed his life, not his hide right? Just plain creepy, IMHO.

Creepy. Pet cemetary comes to mind.

I buried my old dog on the hill out at the ranch over looking the mountains. I think its peaceful. You might consider having your cat cremated.

Creamated.


That's what I'm doing to the SEC.

I'm for it. I think you should have it made into a cuddly stuffed animal instead of one of those stiff taxidermy deals. I wonder if that's possible? MJD

One of the Foxfire books sez cat hide makes the best banjo heads.

Seriously, bury him when the time comes. Grieve and get on with life.

I want my cat stuffed when he kicks the bucket! Nicest playful cat not afraid of water either. He gets in the shower with me every morning. Best cat in the world. He's getting stuffed whether the wifey likes it or not.

Still creepy.

I vote stuffed. Have it posed on its hind legs like it is attacking. It'll scare the hell out of any new cats you get.

I told her that when she dies, I am going to stuff her and place her at the top of the stairs so I can trip over her long after she is gone.

Shouldn't cost more than $300-400.

To tell you the truth, I hate even thinking about the day that this happens. But I do want to plan for it.

I cannot stomach burying him. If I don't go with the taxidermist, I'll cremate him myself ala Luke Skywalker in Return of the Jedi.

Are you saying the SEC is dead?!?!?!?

Sir, I'm sorry. That was one cool cat.

Would you want to be stuffed, or have your wife stuffed for that matter... The thought of stuffing my dog occurred to me once but then asked myself "why". I think a nice little monument is a good idea.. just the right amount of sentiment without the creap factor. Good luck on your decision, my dog is 11 and I'll miss him when he's gone.

When our pets go we will do something out of respect for them not to serve our needs of still wanting them around. We will bury them or cremate them while treating their bodies with respect.

If we need to fill the void they left we will find another needy animal and help them out the way we helped out our current animals (one shelter/pound the other feral stray).
