    I wish someone would burn the mold that cat comes out of. I don't like it either Dennis. This is a good example of a talented, master taxidermist wrestling with a crappy form. The head on that mannikin is just terrible.

    i like the frankness of this post. I wish it happened more often. Who makes this form anyway...it must be out of the 70s era....way off...and hell, im not even close to being a master taxi

    Hey Dennis, a good critique I can handle, and while some of the things you mentioned might be close, but don't come on here can talk about the SALT of a taxidermist! I do my best to produce a high quality mount, and EVERYTHING I produce will have issues as I am not perfect! For you to come on here and try and tear someone down shows me the SALT of you! I guess maybe all I do is sew hides up on bad forms.

    This thread is pretty painful. Matt is a great taxidermist. I think we've all had that hide or form that we just struggled with. The one nothing seemed to go together right. While the cat isn't perfect, It's a lot nicer than 90% of the stuff out there and I'm sure the customer will be happy. I think things could have been said a little kinder. I don't like rose blowing either (hence the reason I didn't comment right away on the thread) but there's a fine line between the truth, and rudeness.
