  1. [​IMG][​IMG] This is my first cat I trapped last year. Me and a friend put the cat together yesterday and I did the squirrel today that cat form was a pain but came out nice. The tree rat was hand wrapped.

    Nice work !
     
  9. I have probably seen more bad cats than any other type of mount. They are tough to get right. You got it nailed! Beautiful mount! Congrats!

    Beautiful work on that one! May I ask what form and brand of eyes you used? I am getting ready to attempt my first trapped cat, a 16Lb. female and all of the photos I took of her alive, she does not have the skinny slit looking pupils like you see on most mounts. Your cat's eyes look more realistic to me! Love the pose and the extra element the squirrel adds to the mount!
     
  13. form was out of makenzie catalog as well as the eyes.

    That cat is sweet! I think the squirrel is great, a lot of times the dead look kills it because it doesn't look "dead" it looks stiff great job!
