I have lots and lots of animal skulls, hides, fur, butterfly's, beetles, and even some human bones in glass cases(Tattoo artist husband = creative/artsy home decoration.), but no. That would be way over the line for me. I'm completely freaked out by whole dead things. The human bones(Old medical specimens, toes, spine, ewwww) are in his office, not allowed in the rest of the house, and in GLASS. I have friends who love taxidermy animals, but I would cry if they were in my house. It's not from hubby's lack of trying either. I do have sterilized skulls(Cow, horse, goat, caribou, ect) in almost every room though, so maybe I'm one to talk... :/

Absolutely!!! I had my African Grey Parrot taxidermied so that he can be buried with me - sitting up on my shoulder as he did in life - I'll get someone to video the response of friends and family as they attend the open casket viewing - I imagine there'll be a few people peeled off the ceiling when they freak out in shock/terror lmao.

As for my Chi's I can't bear to think about it, but I would be in 2 minds.

I never thought about it.... But after watching that clip, I am intrigued. I can't say I wouldn't. I would definitely want her in a sleeping position if I did. The eyes freak me out a bit. I need to think more on this.

I'd consider it with Toby. All of our dogs that have passed were cremated and we have their ashes, our cats ashes where spread over the Everglades. But Toby is special- I don't know what I will do. Luckily, I have 10-15 years to go. Hopefully I will be able to freeze him and rejuvenate him by then, lol.

I dont know if i would do it, would be nice to always have them right there, but its almost like trapping the soul i would want my fur kids to be free once they pass away.

Theresa beautiful bedroom you have and funny you should post the buck, heres ours in the livingroom.. They maybe beautiful outdoors but they sure do make a beautiful mount to and the meat is great..
