After numerous requests (well, three in total- but with a handful of followers that counts for some kind of majority) for a pictorial demonstration of just how much the house is a preserved zoological extravaganza, I've decided to treat you all to a little tasty taxidermy.
Yes, that's a panda. It's also a rug. I suppose there's only one thing better than saving a species that boasts around 2000 members left in the wild, and that's squeezing out its internal organs and granting it some glass eyes so you can stomp all over its endangered back with your polished shoes. Bamboo has nothing on inner city splendour, and I keep the enormous thing well vacuumed, so I suppose that's some consolation.
