RAT

A hardware store in the neighborhood is going out of business after 37 years of business. Evicted by yuppies, essentially. Anyway, they've been giving old stuff to Keiran, owner of Porchlight (http://www.porch-light.net) where I have my "office".
One of the old boxes had this in it, unbeknownst to them.
Truly facsinating.
I think it ate some poison, crawled into this box and dried up. It would not surprise me if this corpse had been in this box for 20 years. Or 3. I don't know.

Here's bigger pics.

cool. My friend Paul has a cat he found in an old windswept barn in western kansas. Preserved like a mummy as this rat. Creepy

I'm sure Keiran loved to find that thing. What are you/Keiran going to do with it?

Jacques, why would your friend keep a dead cat? that's weird. though admittedly, I do like the image of "an old windswept barn in Kanas..." there is that strange, creepy brand of romance to the midwest...

Cat guarded the apartment.

But we still got broken into and

the bill money was taken when he

jumped through the window.

we tossed it, but I had to get some shitty pix before I did so.
