I mentioned that this may be disturbing for some, thus a Sunday post. I was pondering why this would be more disturbing than the other edits of stuffed, dead animals and my conclusion is these look dead, thus upping the ick factor. It doesn’t bother me as much, I suppose since I went to a zoo biological science school I have had a lot more experience around these types of specimens than most, so perhaps I am a bit inured to it, my husband not so much. “That’s disgusting hon, ” was his assessment. I have told him that when our little fur baby G.G. passes I am going to have her taxidermied, because I can’t imagine not seeing her everyday. Yes, he still married me, even though he has emphatically stated that, that would never ever happen. We’ll see. I do hope this hasn’t turned your stomach too much, both the image and my rhetoric.
I will be editing a photo a day for the remainder of 2012::Project MMXII, this is my ‘after’, you can view the ‘before’ here.
