|LOL, I think they both look hostile. and those creepy little dried-out feet on the standing one... I try to put myself in their shoes, but kinda fail. I don't think I want my pet's dead body preserved and posed forever- what do you do in 20 years when the grief isn't so fresh? Or when the original owner dies and the heirs have to deal with it? Turn it into a family heirloom? Give it a proper burial? Dog forbid, sell it in a garage sale...
I ran across something similar a while back and started a thread about it.
Amazing how much of a market there is for this kind of thing!
Edit to say, I don't find it creepy at all to want to have your dead pet near you, or to keep a memento like their ashes, or a lock of hair, etc, (I even know someone who tanned their dog's pelt) it's just that when they're taxidermied it makes them look still alive (or worse, zombi-fied if they do a bad job) and that's what bothers me.
