That thought had occurred as it was not unusual to make these things in advance, for instance there are a few shabti for Nefertiti, and in that name, but were never used. I've been trying to discover where the bier was found, for instance was it found near the cat sarcophagus at Mit Rahineh or elsewhere in the Saqqara area.
Psychologically if a young guy is particularly connected with a pet ... when that pet dies he could think to prepare his own death. As curious as it can sound, I personally had a cat who slept with me. She was old and when she lost the capability to see she used her feline senses to find me ... it happens that fate reserves you intense moments ... I found her dead and I managed [and I still remember the expression on her "face" ... she fought, but she lost] not to allow my mother to see her cat dead. Probably I would have prepared a sarcophagus for that cat! But this happened almost 30 years ago.
