Starting price is $1400.

Created by taxidermist Claire Third Hobbs,  filed the piece under “cat art, taxidermy, fashion, art deco, one off, purse, handbag, cat walk, catatonic, crazy, cool, purrrrrfect”. Reaction to the bag has been extreme. some of the 200 comments left on the website calling it “disgusting”.

According to BBC Claire said no animals were killed in the making of the bag, as she found the cat already dead on the side of the road. she’d picked up the roadkill cat and kept it in her freezer for three months before she decided to turn the stuffed cat into a piece of art.

She decided to turn it into a bag because “he had a particularly nice face, and the rest of him was squashed”.
