I want to try a domestic cat taxidermy project. I have a small cat I got from a biology specimen place. I’m not really worried about the skinning part except the paws and tail. But I think I can manage. But I’m worried about slipping. Should I soak it in something before I start? I sometimes soak my rats and mice in denatured alcohol to keep the slipping down would that work for a small cat? also do I need to use a tanning sulution? I have a couple of different ones but I’ve never used them. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
