A Christchurch taxidermist has created handbags out of dead cats and is selling it on Trade Me.

Taxidermy Unicorn

The sellers are hoping will attract a minimum bidding reserve of fourteen hundred dollars.

It's listed as a 'REAL Glamour puss PURSE'... And indeed, it's a handbag, made from the pelt and head of a real cat.

Christchurch taxidermist, Claire Third, is behind the work.

She is also trying to sell a Unicorn on Trade Me, that she created out of different animals.
