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, made up of different animals.

3:10 A Brief History of Everyone who Ever Lived

Each of us carries an epic poem in our cells.  DNA tells the story of our murky origins, shaped by evolution, to our current obsession with tracing our ancestry.  Dr. Adam Rutherford is a science writer and the presenter of BBC Radio 4's flagship science programme, Inside Science. His new book,  A Brief History of Everyone Who Ever Lived: The Stories in Our Genes  looks at how the mapping of our genome is changing our view of our identity, our history and our future.
