    Default Freeze-Dried Pets

    This is really creepy to me. Sure, they look realistic, but I think it would be painful to see the preserved body every single day and be reminded of the loss. I don't think it would be a comfort at all.

    It would tear my heart out to have to look at them every day and know they are gone and it's just a freeze-dried shell collecting dust.

    My other pets would freak out too. ...and how do you deal with dust? Vacuum? Cans of compressed air? Beating it against the fence like a rag rug?

    this is so wrong. i can just imagine some crazy old lady with 25 live cats and 14 dead ones gathering dust on a shelf.

    I guess you would just brush them carefully? And wipe down the non-hairy parts.

    What would your family do with them when you die? Do you allocate them in a will? I ask the same thing of my sister who has the ashes of all of her animals displayed on her mantle. I love my pets but, this just grosses me out.

    Not particularly on topic, but down the road from us when we were kids was this old woman who had a life size concrete German Shepherd sitting on her porch, realistically painted and gazing toward the road like it was a guard dog. She'd give it a pat every time she passed it on her way in and out of the house. One Hallowe'en, we turned it around so it was staring into the front window. I could hear the screams the next morning even though we were about half a mile away.

    Fine, I'll be the resident freak then. Since the animal's soul is no longer there I don't feel it is degrading per se. As someone who keeps all my dead pet's ashes in a china cabinet in my room, I can see how some would be comforted by this. Your pet is gone either way, but some would still like to feel their presence in any way possible. Who knows, I could even be one of those nutty people myself.

    These people really do beautiful work, I can't deny that.

    If it comforts you, there's nothing wrong with it. I guess the reason it creeps me out is that part of the connection to a pet is the interaction we have with them, the way they respond to us. To look at the shell of the pet I loved, all cold and dead and unresponsive would be awful for me. But if it comforts someone, why not. We also have the ashes of several of our pets and lots of people think that's weird.

    So if my hubby goes toes up maybe I can get him freeze dried and where to put him? Maybe I can set him up in an easy chair in the living room....or actually, in his computer chair with headphones set on head would work. I would move him into the living room during football season though.
