Hi my cat Died last night (Probably due to Brain Damage) Rigor mortis have made her stiff. Last Night she was only cold in her feet / legs. Now the whole body is & she smells (bowel). I live in an apartment & I'm rather poor but still want to get the best possible result. I think Ill manage with removing the skin (cut the stomach without piercing anything & then carefully peel the skin of with a knife) But persevering it / the next step I need Help with before it's to late. I do not have any fancy knife's. Box cutter, Scissor, Old Small Kitchen knife. What should I do/Use? I also have no Idea how I should Extract the bones. I live in an apartment so It can't root. When Searching around & not getting good enough info I found 2 things ; chemicals (sounds expensive & sounds like it could go wrong / hard to get) or Warm water "word" for a few weeks that also deals with the oil / bonemarrow. Is any of these the best or is there other options & how? The Bones need to be white later & I guess bleaching them in the sun should be good enough? I need the bones to last centuries not decades (preferably for the skin too). I also found this site & Asked for Help I have Idea's on what to do with the fur/skin & bones once assembled, but I need Help getting there, Now. Ill Walk my Dog now & then Check if I have any answers / Tips when I get back. Will Start Removing the Fur/skin after that, gulp. Thanks for the Help in Advance & can the discussion plz stay Organized in this thread & not involve a bunch of links to other threads ; I'm not good with those. Can & Will post updates & further questions as I go along & can show the result when it's finally done.
