    I guess I'm strange because this doesn't freak me out? I actually think it's sorta neat... But I suppose I deal with grief differently than those who think this would lock them in a state of perpetual sorrow. I have photos of my dead animals everywhere in my house... I have collars, hair (I have a braid from my favorite deceased horse)... It's all happy memories. I LIKE being reminded of my animals, when they were alive and happy. Having, say, a cat sleeping on a pillow looking peaceful would just seem like a step up from a photograph of that cat napping.


    Jeeze, I'm weird.

    Oh, I definitely have pictures of my animals that have passed away. And I would probably keep a braided piece of my mare's mane or tail if she died. What freaks me out is having the dead animals body in someone's house! Imagine if you went over to someone's place and went to pet the "kitty" and the owners told you, "Oh, well, she is actually freeze dried!!" Eeek!

    I guess that's a personal thing. My MIL thinks I am strange for keeping my dogs ashes rather than scattering them. I don't care, they are in a box on my dresser next to my bed, and they will stay there.

    I had to put my 6 year old guinea pig down this past spring, and it hurt so bad since she was my first and last pet (parents don't want anymore animals). She had always been a healthy distraction for me when I was younger since I was not around horses then, and a great comfort later when I started to grow up. However dry freezing your pet is just creeeepy.

    I mean ok, your reaaaaaaaally attached your pet, I completely understand, but goodness move on and let the poor animal rest in peace in a NATURAL way. :roll:

    ditto! I also have a lot of pictures of my piggy. She's also the screensaver on my phone, so I can always be reminded of her adorable fluffiness.

    This really creeped me out. I wonder if people like actually do this to horses? Some Great Danes are the size of a mini pony so who knows? Lol. The dogs with their eyes open scare me. But whatever floats your boat I guess!

    I have lost pets quite a few times... In my opinion when something is dead, the body is just what it left behind. I definitely do not want the body around because that's not my cat, its just the body which creeps me out a little bit. But if you think about it from science point of view... wow, I never thought they could do that. Its pretty interesting what people can do these days!


    I won't what the pets FEEL like if you tried to pick them up? They would be hard right?

    I must be a horrible person, because my first reaction was to laugh, I mean a freeze dried pet

    I get that everyone grieves differently, but I really don't think it's healthy keeping a body around, ashes maybe, not for me, but I can understand it in a way, but a body?? Even if it is freeze dried, nope not for me.
