Look up charlies taxidermy. He does the best cat mounts. He did a bobcat for my cousin who is member on here. His lions are top notch as well. Natures way another member on here has posted some great cat mounts as well.

Charlie has done lots of mounts for me and my family and always done top quality work. I have taken him animas he has never mounted before and he did amazing work with them. My clients have taken him work as well and got back top quality mounts as well.

Charlies taxidermy. Charlie made the rocks himself and customized the log. I placed the skull below the cat.  Wife added the Santa hat and named her Bobbie.

Cats are the hardest to get right. A lot of taxidermists who do outstanding work on deer and elk cannot make a cat mount look real. Take the time and actually go see in person cat mounts from different taxidermists before making a decision. The eyes are the key and far yoo many wind up looking like they went to Kenny Roger's plastic surgeon. In the South Sound area Nature's way does  the best that I have seen so far.
