Nevada Man Who Spent Years Morphing Himself to Look Like a Cat, Dead From Apparent Suicide and Giant Hairball, But Mostly Suicide

From The Daily Mail UK.

Dennis Avner, the Nevada man who spent years trying to morph his body into that of a cat has died. He was 54.

A veteran of the U.S. Navy, Avner underwent a series of radical body modification procedures to make himself look like a female cat, from whiskers and ears to a mechanical tail.

His body was found in his home in Tonopah on November 5.

Avner’s operations have included bifurcation (splitting) of his upper lip, surgical pointing of the ears, sillicone cheek and forehead implants, tooth filing, tattoos, and facial piercing.

Avner, from Tonopah, Nevada, likes to go by his Indian name ‘Stalking Cat.’

‘I am Huron and following a very old tradition have transformed myself into a tiger,’ he said on his now-defunct website.

……His cause of death has not yet been revealed, yet some are speculating that Avner may have killed himself. Shannon Larratt, the former editor and publisher of BMEzine and friend of Avner, wrote in a blog post:  ‘A wonderful and complex person, he was at times as troubled as he was remarkable, and he recently took his own life at the age of 54.’

His surgeries were done by Steve Haworth, an artist and pioneer of body modification techniques.

Oh, dear gawd.

Anyone who does that kind of permanent shit to their appearance has some serious mental issues. Haworth, the assclown who abetted this surgical deformity ought to be put out of business.

  1. “Do you really think that someone like Haworth performs a useful purpose?”

    A useful purpose to you, probably not. But how can you judge his usefulness against the other 7.052 billion people on this plant. Hint: You can’t.

    “Do you really believe that a society which encourages that kind of absurdity is rational?”

    Encourages freedom of choice? Freedom of expression? The freedom to transform your own body (quite possibly the only thing you’ll ever truly own)? Yea that’s totally irrational.

    The truth really is that you’ve simply stumbled onto something you don’t understand and are incapable of seeing the beauty in. It’s clear to me that you’re both afraid and incapable of understanding because all of your comments on the subject are rooted in ignorance and stupidity. That’s fine, it’s human nature to to be afraid of things you don’t understand.

    1. “Darwin”,

      “Ignorance and stupidity”, like this:

      If you really think these horrid examples of excess are “beauty”, then you’re just as big of a sick fuck as they are. Rational people are repulsed by such things. “Afraid and incapable of understanding”. You’ve gotta be kidding.

  2. “Haworth, the assclown who abetted this surgical deformity ought to be put out of business.”
    And herein lies the contradiction at the heart of the right. I believe in limited gov’t until something happens that offends my sensibilities…then I want a gov’t big enough to pounce and screw freedom, cause I’m offended.

    1. Daniel,

      Do you really think that someone like Haworth performs a useful purpose? Do you really believe that a society which encourages that kind of absurdity is rational? By “put out of business”, I mean the total absence of patronage for this kind of shit.

      Clear now?
