I have wanted to delve into mounting something for a long time. During lockdown, I started to read, watch videos, and study pictures. I joined the forum. I had been told several times that a bobcat would be a rough choice for beginners. Thats what made the decision. I wanted to be completely challenged, and boy was I. I almost gave up a dozen times. At any rate, I saw where Bob Wendt had a bobcat kitten for sale. I purchased it. It arrived very quickly and in impeccable condition. With Brian Hendricks help (on youtube), I threw him in a pickle bath and went through all the additional steps with him. I also would share pictures through the process for critique. I learned a lot that way as well. He isnt perfect by any means, but I am pleased with him. I am going to do some more work on his nose. Ill texture it, paint it, add color, remove it, and start over. I'll get it eventually. Also, I overdid it with the glue. So much that some soaked through. I am still picking it out lol. I was intrigued when I start seeing these soft mounts everywhere. Thats the only thing I am on the fence about. After completing him, I quickly realized that its not a toy. I can only imagine what they would look like a year from now after repeated handling. However, I do like that he can be repositioned. I love that he can look curious, fearful, or playful depending on the positioning. Thank you Taxi-net for the amazing content, thank you Bob Wendt for the beautiful kitten.
