great taxidermy work and a beautiful interesting mount. It never crossed my mind that any one shot the kitten but out of curiosity where did it come from? road kill?

That cat looks goog! many

That cat looks goog! many times you see lions mounted that look pretty aweful (i suspect done by taxidermists who've only done deer in the past.) but that mount looks awesome!

was the kitten still inside the mother when it was shot?

The mount looks great, Thats

The mount looks great, Thats a good way to get animals that are normally off limits. I take it your a taxidermist? when i was younger i wanted to learn how to do it but i never fallowed through with it. I think it would be fun to learn and do. I have a few friends that do it and they seem to enjoy it and make pretty good money also.
