protecting my new mount

I just got my first taxidermy mount back this week. It is a black porcupine and it looks great!! here is the problem. We (the wife) have 3 cats. the porcupine is collecting cat hair like I have never seen. can I spray him with static guard to repeal the cat hair? I know the number one answer is to get rid of the cats, so save it please.

Re: protecting my new mount

My first suggestion would be to get a glass case built for it. I know they can be expensive, but I imagine a porcupine would be a pain to keep clean even without the cats.

Re: protecting my new mount

I have a glass case for my turkey and it is great. I never have to worry about cleaning the feathers. I will say it is heavier than what one person can lift. Do not get a plexiglass case, it will become stratched and look terrible in a year of so.

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.

Paul Czarnecki (tri state taxidermy) mounted a black woodchuck for me probably over 20 years ago. its has been in a glass case since day one and it looks AWESOME.

Re: protecting my new mount

I was afraid that was what I was going to hear. I really don't love the ''under glass'' look. I will have to look into a case. thank you all.

Re: protecting my new mount
