Puss 'n' Boots

Hello Readers :)

These last two days I've realized how much work this quarter is really going to be.  Physiology II, Anatomy, and Pharmacology are going to kick my butt if I don't stay on top of them!  So, yesterday I went out and bought 1100 note cards and two note card carriers.  I plan on making note cards from every lecture the afternoon after class. That way I'll be reviewing the information once already, and will be able to review it more throughout the week!

Today in Anatomy we finished a lecture and then busted out our Cat Cadavers.  Remember me posting about them a little bit my first quarter?  Well this quarter they are all ours.  We got new Cadavers, and each group is assigned one.  When they come, they have the fur and everything on them!  Heather and I named ours Puss n Boots, because once we get done skinning him, he will be "wearing boots."  Oh yes, did I mention we get to skin them?  I've never skinned an animal in my life, and Heather hadn't either, so it was pretty interesting getting started.  We didn't have time to finish skinning out little boy Boots, but we will finish later this week.  We'll have the same Cadaver all quarter, and we will use him to learn all sorts of anatomical parts by dissecting him piece by piece!

That's all I have for today, I've got two exams on Monday so I need to get started finishing my note cards for both of them.  Will write later! :)

Our kitty doesn't look quite like this one ;)


  1. oh my! i'm not sure i could skin a cadaver. how do you prepare yourself for that?

  2. @Jen I didn't even know we were going to have to do it until about five minutes before we did, so I didn't have much time to prepare! I wanted to impress my new classmates and instructor, so I just dove right in!

    Thanks for reading :)
