Here's mine......This one was either sick or hurt because it was turning circles and couldn't stand up without falling over. I watched it for 5 minutes and then ended that.

Haven,

Thanks. Mine is what I consider OK for what I paid.....about $300 with the rock base etc.... If I knew then what I know now I would search out a Taxidermist who is GREAT at the cats. It's all in the proportions and the eyes. Mine has a kind of Asian look but the man did a great job as this was one of his first cats.

Take a look at this thread and you will see what I mean........Some of these by Wildlife Artist on the 2nd page look like they are still breathing.....As the man says......Spend the extra and get a great looking mount. I know he will get my next one no matter what the cost.

Love Boston's. Yours are way to cute. On your cat just make sure the guy or gal is good with the eye work it will make or break your whole mount.

Hi, Birdman nice cat is it one you showed at the GTA. Hope your girls and wife are well. We will not be able to make the winter show just way to busy in the shop but will be at the summer show.

Kim

Here is a question for you: do some taxidermist have problems with ears on cats and maybe even on deer? I think I found one that likes to lay them back and not stand them up. I don't plan on using him even though he wants $375. I have found another fella over in Bainbridge who will mount it for $450, he has been doing it for 17 years now. I plan on going over and seeing some of his work.

The best bobcat mounts I have ever seen. The difference in these and all others is night and day. That is amazing.
