Mouse Skin Blankets

by Veronica on May 7, 2008

in Life

So, mice have soft fur….

…And I was thinking, since I am such a bloodthirsty killer, I could totally make a mouse skin blanket out of mice that I kill with my schwacker.

But, see, mice are dirty. So I would have to wash the skins first.

My plan?

1 – Schwack a mouse. Maybe do some reflex training so that I am actually fast enough to schwack the mouse. So far my schwacker remains completely clean of mouse blood. So does my conscience.

2 – Keep the mouse comatose, but not dead. Give mouse a bath, along with shampoo to make it nice and clean.

3 – Carefully dry the comatose mouse (maybe I need some mouse chloroform to keep it asleep?) and fluff their fur appropriately.

4 – Sharpen my very good, very sharp boning knife. Sharpen it to really really really fucking sharp.

5 – Kill mouse humanely. Maybe with a hammer blow to the head. Very quick and as the mouse is asleep (see above for mouse chloroform), very humane.

6 – Cut mouse’s head off, trying (and I guess failing) to keep blood away from the fur. Make an incision along the stomach and back legs and using the knife carefully peel the skin off.

7 – Feed left over mouse bits to the cats. Hope that this will teach the cats to catch mice so that I don’t have to do it for them.

8 – Make sure the mouse skin is clean of flesh and carefully peg it out to dry (use drawing pins). Refer to handheld manual, ‘How To Dry Mouse Skins For Use As A Blanket’ (albeit a very small blanket. More of a mouse warning sign).

9 – Make sure skin stays nice and dry for the next few weeks.

10 – Repeat x150 to get enough skins to sew together.

11 – Make sure the remaining alive mice see the mouse-skin blanket at every opportunity. Taunt them with it until they fuck off forever.

Hopefully by about mouse #5, the cats will have gotten the idea and I won’t have to schwack so many of them. (The mice, not the cats) Maybe I will even recruit the cats to hand me dead, pre-washed (read: licked) mice for me to skin for them.

Oh the possibilities…

AARGH! We’ve got mices in our house too at the moment. Not being as creative as you, we ran with the ‘get as much RATSAK as possible and poison the fuckers GOOD” route.
Not nearly as skilful, but damn satisfying anyway 😛

Excellent idea, but I’m thinking more along the lines of handbags.

Let me know if this works re: getting your cat to kill the mice. We had some a couple of winters ago and my cat would stand sentry over the fridge, stove, etc, whatever the mice were hiding under, and then WATCH them scurry to their next location. Useless.

Ha, I love it… “until they fuck off forever”..
Good stuff over here!

Do you know where they are residing in your house? If you can find the hole or whatever you can capture them by placing a trap in front of the hole then once they are out of your walls you can seal the hole off, preventing future stays.

OMG. You’re gonna need a bigger schwacker. Maybe even 2 schwackers. You could schwack with both hands. At the same time.

I’m not good with working with small things. Something much bigger would have to piss me off before I’d shwack it and make a duvet…

What’s up with the cats? Isn’t it innate?

Yeesh! You are like the Australian Ed Gein. He made lampshades and such from human skin. Now, THERE’S an idea for your mice skins.

1. Get mousetraps.
2. Wait till Amy goes to sleep. Place them out and bait them.
3. Pick them up in the morning before she can get to them.
4. Put the fucking lazy ass cats outside if you’re concerned that their lazy asses might try to eat the mouse bait.
5. Collect dead mice.
6. Skin them.
7. Then do the hide washing.
8. Sew blanket.
9. Repeat.

Oh my god, you were so far ahead in the votes. What the f*** happened? I went over and voted again…..
Re #5 above, hitting the mouse with a hammer would splatter the newly washed mouse with blood and brains, much better to kill and skin the mouse, then do the washing bit. I thought you were planning a full size blanket, you know kinda like a throw rug for the back of the couch……..

Wow, mice blanket. You are such an environmentalist, recycling and all…

I can’t get to that voting thing again – screen goes all blue — WTF? If they had Chuckie Cheese’s in Taz you could go there to practice schwacking. And Amy would LOVE you because there ain’t a kid nowhere that don’t love Chuckie Cheese.
