This not only disgusts me, it's sad. By keeping the corpse (call it what you want, but it is still a dead body) they are not allowing themselves to deal with the pain. Reading the comments, I found that many of these people felt that freeze-drying their cats or dogs, it was like the animal never left. They're not allowing the normal healing process to occure, and are simply 'hiding the skeleton the the closet' ....or in a pet bed in their living room- in this case.
Pain is no fun thing to go through. I have had to deal with the death of our 17 year old cat before, and it's devestating. But trying to replace or preserve what is truely not there anymore is just absurd.
Death is a part of life. If there is no closure, there is no healing, IMO.
Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.
