I know there was a thread here a while back but my searching hasn't tuned it up. Could some of you guys list again, other than Phil Soucy in Montana, some of the better cat taxidermists that you are aware of in the US. The closer to upper mid west the better. But please list all along with a link to their website if they have one.
Thanks a bunch.

Look up wildlifeartist1 here on the forum. He doesn’t usually accept custom work but will trade work for mountable furs.

Yep, Cody did a cat for me. I'm not a taxidermy expert but I was about as pleased as could be with his finished product.

That is true artistry right there, cats have to be about the hardest animal to get right there is, and those who can do it are few and far between and deserving of whatever they charge and however long you have to wait

I'm glad you guys like the work, he does a great job. I'm pretty sure this is a cat Cody just finished up for a friend of mine. I donated the hide. We don't have the prettiest cats on the planet.

A cat is a beautiful animal but yours do have the back of a rabbit look down to a T!

In the past I have caught some plain lookin cats then flipped them over and said wow!

Ok, I exaggerated. That only happened once LOL.

A great mount is still a great mount, thanks for sharing some
