I have recently had my cat freeze dried (RIP) however the taxidermist wasn't able to properly do the pose and expression I wanted, and I'm feeling pretty disappointed. He said it's near impossible to rehydrate and make any adjustments at this stage however I've seen a few people mention using denatured alcohol/methylated spirits to inject into areas and adjust them. The main things are the eyelids and ears. One of the paws is curled in an unnatural way, and ideally I'd want to straighten it. I'm finding communication with the taxidermist to be a little difficult so thinking about potentially making these adjustments myself. Any advice greatly appreciated.
