Life-like stuffed Maine Coon cats

No no, this is not a re-post. This is follow up to the Life like stuffed Maine Coon cats post. Because I was really interested in what people were looking for in a stuffed Maine Coon cat, I did some research. The results are shocking. Please prepare for what you are about to see.

Behold! A true monster!

This monstrosity of a stuffed animal is supposed to be a Maine Coon, and as the website claims: “This Plush Maine Coon Cat is So Soft & Warm You won’t be able to stop touching him.” Well, to be honest, I think I won’t even be able to bring myself to touch it in the first place. Coons have lush and long tails, it looks like this douche of a stuffed animal got stuck in paper shredder, it’s so awful.

That sorry excuse for a Maine Coon wasn’t the only one I found. This one has the attitude and the tail down, but is still a long way from looking like a Maine Coon:

Close, but no Seagal

And the copywriter who wrote the text for this one is someone that once wrote for the J. Peterman catalogue. At least, that’s what I think when I read sentences like:

“The eyes and nose of each animal are extraordinarily lifelike (ed. the secret word), too—and, of course, safety-anchored” and “Extraordinary. Exquisite. And exclusively yours.” Well, that did it: lifelike, safety-anchored and exclusively mine. And all that for just $ 227.

The last one is the least crappy:

Seagal it still ain't

Also, the website that sells it isn’t written like the cat is the new Christ. It even features a little tidbit about Maine Coons. Nonetheless, I feel that the day that I will spend $ 200 on a “life-like” Maine Coon cat will also be the day that I will think that the nurses are my parents and tapioca pudding is my staple food.

    But still, remember that ugliest cuddly toy everyone had in their early days (the ‘kinderen voor kinderen teddybeer’).. Didn’t look like a real one at all, nevertheless it was the sweetest of ’em all. However, you probably never spent 200 dollars on it, so maybe you have a point after all.

    The grey one is kinda cute though, in a handicapped sort of way!
