    I like the color and spots on that cat. Most of the cats here in east KY are a darker gray seems like. Here is one I put together yesterday. A big tom. He is still a little wet. [​IMG]

    Cats seem to be a different beast when it comes to taxidermy. Here are a couple of the best ones I ever saw.

    I agree 6x5BC. Never seen anything close to his cats except for Phil Soucy out West.

    I've seen enough butcher jobs on cats that I wouldn't even pull the trigger on one with the intention of mounting it unless I had this guy lined up.

    Ain't that the dang truth. I'm right there with ya. Probably 90% of the cat mounts you see are just not what you hope for...at least that's been my experience. I got lucky and had a couple of local guys do my Mtn Lion and they did a fantastic job on it. May end up getting a Bobcat done by 'em too.

    I got this one back from the taxidermist last week. I agree that about 90% look like cartoon characters. I was decently pleased with this one. I would say he got it about 80% correct and that's all I can ask for. Very difficult animal to mount for sure.

    Here's one that's a fairly similar pose. It all comes down to the face and the eyes. I'm hoping to get this pose done soon.[​IMG]
