    You can always tell a good or bad cat taxidermy work by the face and head. Excellent job.

    Ditto. Some of the worst taxidermy I have ever seen is leopards heads. Some just can't get it right. This is a great job. Thanks for sharing your work.

    Fantastic job Dennis. It is a special art to doing any of the cats. Seems you have the "touch". Very rare talent. Well done.
