I agree. Almost every one you see looks wrong, but this one is one of the few that looks perfect. I sure hope he don't screw it up now. grin

I've been pumping the kid telling him how I'm spreading his fame far and wide. He's putting everything he's got into this one.

Bobcats, especially the face, seem to give a lot of taxidermists trouble. Your cat is one of a very few Iíve seen that look real.

You are correct. The taxi told me well ahead of time that he used round pupils on his cats intentionally. He said getting the narrow pupils aligned properly was a nightmare for most taxidermists. I'll let him know someone noticed and maybe that will force him to refine his technique. I'm happy as can be with the round pupils.


As has been pointed out, those eyes are not even remotely wrong. The statement that cat pupils are always vertical slits is about as correct as saying that a cat track never shows claws. Ain't so. Taximan's photos show it plainly. If a cat is agitated or excited their pupils dialate bigtime. And your taxidermist is correct, Posco, aligning the verticle pupil eye on a 'cat mount is a royal pain in the pitooty. Back in the day, like 25 years ago, my reputation for mounting a realistic 'cat was well known in our neck of the woods, and I had plenty of them to mount. Even so, I still cring when I see some of the old 'cat mounts I did!! Unfortunetly I am violently allergic to the dang things and had to quit excepting them to mount, but I sure enjoyed working on 'cats when I wasn't sneezing and snoting.

Thanks, that makes me feel a lot better. At the rate he is going I should have this back in a week if not sooner and I'll post pics of the finished product. He does a really good job and goes well out of his way to give his customers what they want, he won't hesitate to modify a mold to suit a request.

I've had you in mind. They're dropping but I've only made one short excursion looking for them. I'll keep you filled in.

I've been passing on the compliments to the taxidermist. Glad you like it.
