    I found an unfortunate victim of the road on a rural farm street, a beautiful orange tabby. If I can't find an owner I plan to tan and mount her. Problem is, I can't seem to find anywhere that sells domestic feline eyes. I can't tell what color her eyes were, so any color would work. Considering buying fox eyes to use.

    My other questions were how realistic would it be to have a fox mount looking to the left with a little eye whites showing? I think it would be cute, but if it isn't realistic I'll just do a forward looking look, and would 10 pounds of wood wool be sufficient for a fox, cat, and muskrat lifesize? Or will I need more?

    Call tohickon eyes as they make them. I’ve done plenty of cats and I just tell them the color and they send them.

    Are they already made or do I have to wait months to get say a pair of green cat eyes?
