I wouldn't do that. I think letting the pet go helps with the grieving process. Having the pet physically gone would help one come to terms with the loss.

Plus, I feel like it would be disrespectful to the pet. I know they wouldn't care, but I feel like it'd be best to just let them rest in peace.

I wouldn't stuff them, no. I can barely look at the photos of Kissa(my Pom that
passed) on my wall, I could not have her body with glass eyes looking at me,
sitting in her bed, I just couldn't, I think it wouldn't feel like I fully let her go. For
future, I like the idea of a pet cemetery, I know there are many in the US, and I
heard of some in Canada. So I will look into that.

I love the buck in the hat, what a lovely boy. And that silver fox tail. I just want to pet it.

I collect pelts, taxidermy, bones, feathers, etc.. I have 3 soft mounted foxes. I mounted them myself with "discard" pelts (not taxidermy quality) so they all look sort of silly. One looks like it's on meth, one had such a ruined eye socket that the eye had to be sewn closed, and the final one took me the longest. He looks pretty normal just a bit grumpy.

Do you have pictures of the ones you've done?

I have no issues with others doing it, but its not for me. I think everyone grieves in different ways, and if it helps, go for it.

Definitely no. To me stuffing my dog would be on par with stuffing a member of my family. When I lose someone, I find it helpful to really realize that they're gone and I'm 100% sure that a stuffed version of my dog would only make me sad. I have the ashes of two of my schnauzers and I will always have them with me. I have had quite a bit of experience with taxidermy (some really nice stuff and some not so nice) in an educational wildlife aspect and I'm just not a big fan. To each their own though!
