Reality Show Oddities No Longer Buys Petrified Cats

We're sure the market for petrified cats isn't huge but it did just lose one of its biggest retailers.

Obscura Antiques & Oddities, the store from the Science Cahnnel's reality show Oddities, is no longer buying petrified and mummified cats.

After the show began to gain popularity, people started trying to sell all their old, weird antiques to the store.

They were apparently flooded with requests to buy petrified cats from people.

They said:

"We've been overwhelmed by calls from people wanting to sell petrified cats and mummified squirrels that they find in their attic. We're out of the market now, for the most part."

Though if the right cat mummy comes along they might change their mind, but it'd have to be a quality specimen.

"For me, the choice to buy a petrified cat comes down to aesthetics. Most are dried out and decayed."

So unless you have a perfectly preserved pussy, don't try and sell it to Obscura!

So Sad! Former Playboy Playmate Yvette Vickers' Mummified Body Discovered

yvette vickers mummified body found

So sad and disturbing.

Former Playboy playmate/B-movie actress Yvette Vickers was found dead at her Los Angeles home last week.

Based on the mummified state of her body, police believe she could have been there for months, or even close to a year.

No word yet on an official cause of death, but foul play is not suspected.

Vickers' body was discovered by actress neighbor Susan Savage, who became suspicious when she saw yellowing letters and cobwebs in Vickers' mailbox.

Susan entered her neighbor's home, which was "in disrepair," and she found the former Playboy playmate's unrecognizable body on the floor.

Here's what Susan had to say about Yvette Vickers:

"She kept to herself, had friends and seemed like a very independent spirit. To the end she still got cards and letters from all over the world requesting photos and still wanting to be her friend."

"We've all been crying about this. Nobody should be left alone like that."

Such an incredibly sad story. We're just glad her body was finally discovered so she can be properly laid to rest.
