So there was a marathon on tv of a show called "American Stuffers". Has anyone seen it? Its about a taxidermist who preserves peoples' pets who have passed on. He places them into positions requested by the owners and freeze dries the entire pet! He then touches them up with airbrusing to make them look alive again. It seemed weird at first but the show turned out to be really interesting so I ended up watching the entire season haha.
Check it out, but WARNING! Not for the faint of heart:
So this show got me wondering, how many of you would want to preserve your pets? Supposedly an average sized dog costs $700 and it would vary depending on size. It freaks me out so I would never do it hahaha but I completely appreciate and respect people who would choose to. This guy seems to really love animals and understands how much people care about their pets.
No thanks! Lol....that is some weird shishkabobs. I saw the documentary on Netflix of a trophy lady of a used,to be,billionaire and she had 2 dogs that died and they made one flat like a rug to be put on top of a piano and one stuffed upright in a airtight case....-.-
Yes I would and in fact have two of my most treasured pets, european starlings, preserved. I did this myself using dry heat to essentially mummify their bodies because I simply couldn't handle the idea of letting them rot and be "ruined".
It's comforting to be able to still see them. They are empty but they are familiar and in death the sheen of their beautiful feathering does not change at all, it is still as stunning as in life.
