Man turns roadkill cat into 'mancave' rug that sells for $9553/21/2013
An Australian man found a way to turn a "pretty nice looking" dead cat into almost $1,000 profit. Taxidermist Andrew Lancaster picked up the flattened animal last month, stuffed it and turned it into a rug. Despite receiving a ton of criticism, Lancaster posted the rug on an online auction site, describing it as "a great little gift for the mancave." A New Zealander placed the winning bid, paying $955 for the roadkill rug. Lancaster continues to get online threats, ranging from "You sicko" to "I hope this happens to you." (What? Being run over or being turned into a floor covering?) "I just respond with a smiley face," he said. That's better than a dollar sign. [Huffington Post]
