Artist turns dead cat into thousand dollar handbag

Tom the taxidermy cat was found dead on the side of the road before it was made into art

A dead cat has been turned into a handbag and sold on an online market place for $400 Australian dollars.

A New Zealand artist Claire Third decided to create a furry cross body bag out of the dead corpse of a fluffy feline because she thought the house animal had a “nice face”, although the body was “squashed.”

Claire auctioned off the couture piece on the online marketplace Trade Me for $1,400 Australian dollars, which described the item as “artistic passions and desire to engineer the surreal, particularly using feral and domestic felines.”

Speaking to Stuff newspaper, Claire said: “He had a particularly nice face, and the rest of him was squashed.”

The bag has reportedly been sold for $400 Australian dollars.
