Pet Pillows!
posted by loquacious (35 comments total)

 
So...do you think there'd be some way this post and the one before it could get together?

I'm thinking "fried pet pillows" or something...

Please freeze your pet immediately upon passing to insure there will be no hair slippage. Double bag to insure no freezerburn.

Daddy! Can you reach the popsicles for me? Fluffy's in the way!

I wonder what is going through rover's mind as his mentor returns from the dead as a pillow.

OMG...my girlfriend tells her cat that she is going to make a pillow of him when he dies all the time!

I thought it seemed a bit creepy at first, but now that i've seen it with a camouflage background i'm convinced.

Has anyone ever seen the Pet Mummies? Bronzed Pets?

Oh, and Jeanette's kinda hot, too, in a taxidemy kind of way.

casu marzu - you owe me a new monitor- or, at least some Windex! Still cracking up over that line!

You're right - she is kinda hot. Who would have thought...?

This is gool, but I'd much rather fill my mother's 30lb cat with those microbead things. Now that would be a cool pillow.

What would be really cool is if Stephen King writes a sequel to Pet Cemetery, where the pillows come back to life and kill everyone in a small, rural Maine town, except for one little girl who uses her special "shinning" abilities to fight back the murderous horde of upholstered zombies.

I think she's way underpriced. I mean, people are willing to FedEx her the dog and then she only charges them another $75. Or $130 for a cow! She's making more money for the courier than for herself

Or $130 for a cow!

Lotta beef in a freshly-frozen cow...

How much does FedEx charge to ship a frozen cow? I'll bet it's at least $100.

This is just plain wrong... reminds me of that Family Guy episode where Brian finds that his mom was turned into a table...

d'ya think they have special extra large FedEx boxes for cows, or do they just use a giant padded envelope...?

327.ca, your every wish is provided by the Internets:
Stuffed Donuts (and I don't mean creme filled).

More importantly, are the boxes free?

So wrong. So, so wrong. You do not stuff your loved ones. I think I may have nightmares. Eeesh.
posted by Medieval Maven at 4:25 PM on March 19, 2005


actually in retrospect, if the cow's going to be double-bagged anyway, you might be able to get away with just a few FedEx stickers....

These soft, huggable pillows are a great way to enjoy your cherished pet and is an inexpensive alternitave to taxidermy.

Is that how one types with a drawl?

FedEx has special envelopes for stool samples so, who knows, they might have something for carcasses too.

Hm. This conversation isn't getting any less gross, is it?

Did you know that in some cultures they put their dead in intentionally non-permeable containers -- so that the dead are never reunited with the earth -- and then ironically bury them in the earth?

Disgusting!

Cool.
I wonder if they do pets, as well as humans?
posted by Espoo2 at 6:02 PM on March 19, 2005


Now I come to think of it though - but maybe it's just me - I don't actually know anyone who owns a pet cow.
posted by forallmankind at 8:13 PM on March 19, 2005


I'd be more impressed if they could turn my dog into this.
posted by Bighappyfunhouse at 9:27 PM on March 19, 2005


Taxidermy pet pillows? That is sick.
Do they have a sister site that can do a trophy mount of your pets head on the wall? Maybe turn small legs into a pen or pencil holder? The cat-tail dust broom?
Mold the eyes into glass for earrings? Fido's good luck left ear charm on a key ring?
Egh. It has to all be out there somewhere.

I got into taxidermy by accident.

Isn't that what Norman Bates said?

I'd stuff her.

I'm very sorry for that.

Playing around on the Fedex site, I found that a 400 lb cow (that seems light for a cow) is too large for Fedex ground. Fedex Express will accept it, but the freight charges will be about $4000.00.

I guess you could go Postal Service, but they won't accept a parcel over 70 lbs. You'd better just skin your cow yourself and ship the skin. To prepare the skin for shipping, refer to the Domestic Mail Manual. The new version, DMM 300 comes out tomorrow and replaces DMM 58. Believe me, DMM 300 is much easier to use.

oh. my. god.
I almost let out a scream when I first opened the site.

Anyone read the instructions on what to do should your pet expire?

"Please freeze your pet immediately upon passing to
insure there will be no hair slippage. Double bag to
insure no freezerburn. Ship packages ONLY on Monday's
do prevent carrier mishaps. All frozen animals must
be shipped next day air to insure against spoilage.
Incase of large animals please call for shipping
instructions. "

Only on Mondays?!?
