Yuck, Mark! Mind you, we dissected pregnant rats in our high school biology class.
You think that was bad… for “Mammology” class we had to do cats. Your average “Tabby” housecat. And to make matters worse, the specimen had to be taken home with you for studying reasons… so Carrie (my lab partner) and I had to take turns keeping the damn thing in our fridge.
It was HELL because for like a month we had to keep our daughter AWAY from the fridge! So she wouldn’t see and freak!!
