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...

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—
I love coming home to messages!
I’ve got a (dead) guinea pig to pick up Tuesday :D
The Small Mammal Manual Manuscript. A Step by Step Guide to Preaparing and Articulating Small Mammal Skeletons. Volume 9 of th Bone Building Books by Lee Post. A manual how to clean and assemble the bones and skeletons of mammals smaller than a wolf.
Adding this to my wishlist!
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.

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).
