The only thing that’s weird about this business is that no one thought of it sooner.
There’s a new toy company called Cuddle Clones that will make you a stuffed animal replica of your PET. You send them some photos and information, and they send you back a stuffed animal that looks as similar to your pet as possible.
They do dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, pigs, horses . . . you name it. And based on the photos we’ve seen, they’re actually pretty accurate.
You can do it to get a stuffed version of a pet that’s still alive . . . maybe to take on vacation, or send to college with your emotionally-stilted child.
Or you can do it to get a stuffed version of a DEAD pet . . . which is creepy, but still way less creepy than going to a taxidermist.
You can order yours at CuddleClones.com. It starts at $199 for dogs and cats, and they’ve already got so many orders that people who get in now will probably have to wait until July to get their stuffed animals.
