The real Catman

And I’m not talking about the comic-book hero, but about the real cat-man…or Stalking Cat as he likes to be addressed to.

David Avner, a native American, part Huron, part Lakota has spent more than $200.000 on plastic surgery to make himself look as a tiger, his totem animal. He even had all of his teeth removed and replaced them with feline-like ones, he has tattooed his face with stripes, he modified his upper lip and inserted stainless steel implants to insert whiskers in, he had his ears surgically pointed and inserted silicone in different areas of his face.

Catman has become quite famous after appearing on several TV shows, including Ripley’s Believe it or Not and Larry King Live.

    HAHAH okay so I have a couple of issues with this.

    I’m Native American too ‘Catman’ and I’m fairly sure tigers don’t exist naturally in North America so the tiger as a totem animal is a pretty new-age-power-yoga-dance-the-may-pole BS thing. Also, have you SEEN a tiger? Their pupils are round… just. like. ours.

    Holly cow it kinda looks like Michael Myers, when he is a little boy and locked in that weird building and he makes his own maskes.
    So does he know how to speak tiger language?
