Saying goodbye to a pet is sometimes even harder than saying goodbye to family before they pass. So a website called Cuddle Clones wants to make it a little easier to cope with the loss of your pet by creating a plush clone of it using just a handful of photos from different angles. Each clone is custom-made, and the results are remarkably close to the real thing.
It's a considerably less creepy alternative to having a deceased pet taxidermied, because while the plush clones do look a lot like the actual animal, they still have dimensions and features that make them look more like a toy. And despite running anywhere from $130 to $200 (£86 to £132, plus shipping) depending on the size of your pet, the Cuddle Clones are far cheaper than taxidermy which starts at around £700 and goes up from there.
