Have trouble letting go? Can’t figure out what to do with that new scalpel set you just bought? Freakishly interested in freakish projects? Then why not try a little creative taxidermy on your dearly departed pet with Get Stuffed, a book of 24 projects for the bereaved pet owner. Though I consider myself creative, it’s hard to top this book’s description, so I’m just going to give it to you in full:
When Fido leaves this mortal coil for the big farm in the sky, when Fluffy doesn’t wake from her afternoon nap, when a beloved gerbil takes his last run on the exercise wheel, the grieving humans are left behind to mourn. If your pets are a much-loved part of the family and you want to keep them with you, Get Stuffed offers you an even better choice than simple taxidermy. By turning your pet into a useful household object, he remains as beautiful-and valuable-as he was in life.
With projects like a doggie TV-remote caddy, a kitty foot-warmer, and gerbil wind chimes, you’re sure to find at least one way to put your friend-to-the-end to good use. Why waste?
