if the cutting operation fails, atleast get the skull and use it as a hip lampshade.

I collect skulls in the bush. Once I found a skull of a boar, but it was to bulky to carry it around all day, therefore keeping it and taking it back home.


Go hunting bears with a knife. That's worth a trophy. Not roadkill. It's perverted.

You not real predators, bitches!

NEWS FLASH:

I found the hideout of the gecko living in my garage! Gonna catch it later! (i hope)

my mind has never been clearer, you dumb ape. what, you have some guns and go round killing animals? way to go. but this isn't just for FUN, you dumb leopard. this is going to be kosmonaut cat, hung from the ceiling. Not some trophy of found dead animal, you dumb mutt!

Anyway, I cut off it's legs and tail using some hedge trimming scissor bullshit. It was easy enough, no problemo.



The head was a new story. The scissors didn't seem to work in my usual style, so I had a go with the shovel and its neck snapped. Then I just cut it off using a scalpel and being patient as hell!



So I put all the stuff in a bag, buried the body and considering my next move. The head is possibly unusable since the eye is still hanging out, the jaw seems to be broken and the skin around the ears is starting to tear since I was a bit rough. I'm thinking I can make the body out of chicken wire, attach everything through an elaborate wire bullshit then wrap it in tin-foil, see how that looks. I'll also have to clean everything up, repair the head someway. Can probably cut out the hanging eye, glue everything shut. That work?

Why don't you just pour boiling water on it if you want to get rid of the fur, that's how I used to do when I needed to clean a chicken or a rabbit.

I have never had any desire to skin a cat and honestly hope that I never do. However if I did wish to attempt to skin such a beastie I believe I'd try to dress it out like a rabbit perhaps? When butchering rabbits we'd usually suspend them from the hind legs by loops attached to a beam (a good position for draining blood which you have no need of). I've seen others use metal bars & hangers to acomplish the same goal.

Better luck next time.

yeah i got the horn.

here are my plans in case i havent made myself clear.



Now first I wanted a full cat in a space suit, with a helmet and everything. But I figured the smell would be to much, so I looked towards a method of preservation. Instead of that I thought, mabye I could just use the skin. But a head is hard to skin, plus it'd be not as accurate as just the actual cat.

Bringing me to just cutting off the bits I need.

The whole idea & the thought of the smell disturb me to the extreme. Still I'd think that in that case your best bet would be to rid yourself of the brain as it will get terribly nasty as the thing decays. Pack & dry the bits in a salt cure or dry them out in borax.

Better yet, give the whole thing up & bury the rest of the creature & go back some months from now for a nice skull instead. Your parents are still not in the least concerned about you playing with dead things?

Well mama changed her tune after the last bout of dead shit in the garden, so that's why I had to move out to the wasteland. But papa thinks its funny, so it all balances out. As for the smell, eh. The stuff you said sounds to pricey, so I think I'll just keep spraying it with axe/lynx until next tuesday and hope nothing slides off or drips out. I guess I could shove it in some salt mabye. How about vinegar?

This is the best thread ever. Seriously.

If you just wanted the skeleton, bleach and peroxide would work best.

As for preserving skin, fur, etc...I'd think smoking it like beef jerkey would work well. Sun-baking takes too long and risks exposure to uglies that eat dead things. Hang what you want inside a kiln for a few days, or inside a barrel full of charcoal or something..Salting the "meat" helps dry it out, but the salt may have the effect of eating away at the "meat."

Thing is I can't really use the fridge, the oven, anything around the house really. I told mama I'd use the secetar bullshits and she said throw them away. I'd go for smoking, cept my dad won't let me use his chimney. I think I'll go the salt method.

well yeah looks like it was enough for you to win, tho' the only thing I'm half-agreeing with dreadnought is that you can't die silently, because I think you'll still be transmitting the course of your innovative dying research on your deathbed, doing your best to keep the pictures coming.

your methods doesn't bother me, althrough I rationally think they aren't likely to yield success, because you're too unpractised and prone to clownism, as for theories... stop. you have theories? you mucked up the cat trying to make a space suit, there's no such Nobel category as yet.
