It was raining today, so I didn’t really feel like going anywhere. Fortunately, my friend decided to skin the mouse that the cat had killed. I took pictures of the process. Note that these pictures are not for the squeemish, like me.
Here’s the mouse that the cat killed. It’s real, real small. Been dead for maybe 2 days? Not sure.
Here is my friend using a boxcutter to make the first slit, from anus to throat up the belly, more or less.
Here’s the mouse with it’s insides peeking out.
Then my friend peeled off the skin, very carefully, since the skin is really quite thin.
This is hard to see, but next my friend pulled the meat of the legs out of the skin of the legs, like it was a sleeve.
It was seriously gross.
Then the head was pulled out of the skin. wtf, I said, omg.
Here’s a picture of the inside of a mouse without the skin. Note that one of the eyeballs fell out.
Then my friend scraped all the extra flesh off of the skin.
Next my friend cracked open the skull to retrieve the brain.
Then the brains were smeared into the skin, to serve as a tanning agent.
It isn’t really done yet, since it has to be stretched and dried or something, but yeah, here’s the result of today’s work.
