As I said, I’m honoured you asked me, at this very sad and emotional time for you. The death of a much loved pet, even when it’s old age, is hard.

I wish you all the best with his preservation x

hi, I have a question on a sort of tender topic. I've just found my cat of 16 years' body, who looks to have passed away a few days ago. I don't want to sound cavalier, I'm profoundly stricken with grief, but I'd like to preserve him as much as possible, to keep him with me. He was inside so the body is intact, but the rigor mortis is pretty severe right now. I was hoping you could offer some insight as to how I'd go about preserving his skin & bones? big fan of your blog& i love your work...

Asked by cockeycockedandloaded

Ok before I attempt to answer your question ; if anyone dares give the OP jip for wanting to preserve a much beloved pet to keep them close, consider this - it is their pet and their decision. 

This is going to be long so I’ll put it under a cut—

When I found this rib along the Thames it was on my first bone hunting trip with hrokr. I loved how this was one of the few rib bones unbroken by time (and the tides… boats … people … rocks … you get the drift!) with a gentle curve and chocolate brown aging.
And the other night I decided as much as I love this rib, I wanted to try making a statement rib necklace. I had ideas of a rib covered in bone charms, glass vials, metal charms and all sorts of bits of nature. But when it came to attaching the rib to the necklace chain, I just couldn’t do it. I couldn’t mar this perfect rib with more drill holes and bits of metal and glass.
I tailored the length of the chain so the bone sits further down the chest. The accent fine antique brass chain adds more movement to balance off the stoic rib bone that refuses to bend or break.
Even if I make another rib necklace like this, it wouldn’t be the same as every bone is different. I doubt I’ll find another rib bone as perfect as this.
And though I would really like to keep it, I’ve listed it on my etsy so it may find another loving home. The price is a bit above and beyond most of my wares … but hey. I hope whoever buys this will think it’s worth it.

Who’s a pretty snake? Trinity is! Was nice to get her out for a photo or two :)

What's the best way to prepare a dead animal to decompose? I live in the country and I attempted to allow a possum to naturally decompose and as bones were appearing a coyote took it.

Asked by thingsinvolvingme

If you’ve got ‘yotes and such which will steal a body, creating a wire mesh cage and anchoring it to the ground with a tent peg should prevent the larger bones being stolen. Alternatively, you could always bury the whole animal in standard soil in a plant pot and leave to decompose that way. It depends on what you’re able to do, but as I assume you have few neighbours, leaving it in a wire cage in a shaded (but not completely dark) place is probably a decent method of decomposition (weather permitting ofc).

'The Linguini Incident’

I had to rewatch this the other day - and it’s a strange kind of story why - mydeadthingsdiary named a badger pelt Monty and it reminded me of David Bowie’s hellishly-adorable and ridiculously-attractive character in this movie.

I mean, for instance, he goes through the whole film looking like some kind of lost puppy and it’s heartmelting, and when he says “Hello, I love you.” how can anyone not fall on the floor flailing? 

Also, this film has good female characters that would probably tick all your acceptable to feminism boxes, and I still like them! Miraculous!

So yes, Monty the badger, you have a big personality to live up to.

Also the whole film is on youtube go watch it. It will not be a waste of your evening.

Took some pictures of my sheep (Ovis aries) skull, Agnus. I’m not 100% sure, but I have very good reasons to think he’s a Finnsheep.

Feel free to use as reference!
