A handbag made from a dead cat was spotted on auction website TradeMe.
According to Yahoo News, the bag called REAL Glamour puss PURSE, made from a “feral ginger tom” killed when it was run over, is up for sale for $1500 in an auction that ends on Wednesday night.
“For the girl that has everything a one off purse that will grab attention where ever you go,” member AlienTech, who has listed the item from Christchurch, said.
“This is not for the faint hearted … No animals were killed or hurt to create this piece.”
The bag is “very stylish”, will last for “years and years” and has an easily changeable strap, according to the lister.
“That is sick !! I love animals and you are totally disrespecting them !!!” one TradeMe member commented.
“This is disgusting.. Not the slightest bit creative or artistic,” said another.
But some are cracking jokes on the listing.
“Has the cat been spayed as I don’t need a lot of coin purses running a muck cheers,” one asked.
Another asked: “How much to have myself made into a bag? Probably around 50 years from now by estimate. Thx.”
