I’m sure we love animals , but would you go to the extreme to make yourself look like one ? Well Mr.Dennis Avner better known as Cat Man or Stalking Cat did!
Stalking Cat was an American man known for his extensive body modifications, which were intended to increase his resemblance to a tigress. For his 14 surgical procedures towards that goal, he held a world record for “most permanent transformations to look like an animal ! Once we found Mr.Dennis Avner , we became to learn that he lived alone in a small apartment in Tonopah , NV and that Cat-Man had already spent a bit over $200,000 on his modifications, he mentioned in one of his many interviews that he had Fame but No money. His next modification was to get his Cat Ears on his head even though he’d already cropped his human ears to be shaped to a tigers. By now he had whiskers on his face. Cat-Man went so far to even get himself a manager which lead him to gain many interviews and travel a bit as such places as Vegas and as japan , where his manager told the one story of how one time traveling to japan the airline didn’t want to allow Cat-Man on the airplane luckily Cat-Mans manager know the Head Guy from the board of that airline and he threatened the airline workers that they will get fired once he made a call to his friend from the board. Their conserns and comments were that Cat-Man could kill anyone onboard the plain with his long sharp nails ,once threatened they even suggested that they can place Cat-Man in a special section where he would not be seen but with the requests that he must sit still and his manager replies were he’s going to sit with the public and he will get up to use the rest room as well if needed. Cat-Man and his manager ended up taking that flight to japan where he was heading over there to be a spectacle something like a sideshow freak.
We also learned that Cat-Man had no true friends and in November 5, 2012 Mr. Cat-Man committed suicide by putting a bullet in his head. Cat-Man once mentioned in an interview that his one friend was his manager , and in one interview Cat-Mans manager said “ I wasn’t Cat-Man Friend I was his manager”! Have I been his friend , he wouldn’t be dead.
