Post 984: The Death of Rats

Taxidermy

I have 2 dead pet rats in my freezer that I would like to preserve the skeleton and skull from. What is the best way to do this? Do you know how to do taxidermy? Is that even taxidermy? Can someone tell me a not gross or messy method or do it for me? I could pay you i guess. We could work something out, I have no idea where to even begin with how much, like 100$ maybe? Or is this like, a thousand dollar operation? Could the vet help me? Should I call the vet? Any assistance is appreciated and this is a real post. I loved these dead rats very much when they were alive and I think it’d be cool to have a rat skeleton or two in a glass display case.

Thanks for your time and please don’t flag me if this somehow offends you. They were my pets and they died of old age and I stuck them in my freezer because I didn’t know what to do with them. I didn’t want to just throw them in the garbage. I thought about burying them in my garden but now I want their bones as a piece of cool art.

Post 975: How to Divorce Someone You’ve Never Met

Note: NinjaChow submitted a bunch of cool posts, so we are having a Pet Week so we can remind you that pets are forever. Easter is not a good time to get bunnies, chicks, ducks, or lambs and dispose of them later on.

Dog Sharing

I have a dog. He’s an Akita Inu/Husky. He’s 5 years old and about 75lbs. He’s super friendly to every person and every dog. I’m looking to see if anyone is interested in sharing him, like divorced parents…😂. We can alternate weeks, or every 2 weeks. He’s super social and loves meeting people and other dogs so I’m sure he would love the opportunity to explore the world more. Makes a great hiking partner!

Ideally you live around the Olympic Village, but anywhere in Vancouver could work.

Lab Benches

Solid steel construction with a chemically resistant top. Benches are very heavy and need at least 2 – 3 people to move. Tops can be detached.
