Belgian taxidermist Cathy Vertongen works on a dead cat in her workshop in Sint Levens Houtem October 7, 2011. People look at their dog for the last time before its cremation in Boom September 30, 2011. A Belgian company called Animatrans has been organizing funerals for pets and other animals since 1995, and for the past five years, the company has been providing more personalised services. Owners, who want to keep lasting mementos of their pets, could choose to keep their ashes or erect tombs in a dedicated cemetery for animals. Clients could also have their dead pets stuffed by a taxidermist and even request to create resin masks depicting the faces of their pets. Picture taken October 7, 2011.
