Day 11/365: Last June, one of my cats took the head off of my framed hanging #bat #skeleton and it broke apart into 6 pieces: the #skull separated from the body, the jaw detached, a fang was knocked loose, the neck vertebrae snapped off, ands a rib broke. Miraculously, I was able to recover all of the pieces.
It sat asunder until November when I finally messaged @tomsimagination to say what had happened and ask him to prepare me another. He instead told me that he thought I could fix it and to try fixing it before purchasing another (cause he's awesome and more interested in happy customers than pumping them for money) so I purchased a different caged bat I'd be wanting instead of replacing the framed one that my cat decaputated and decided to attempt the fix. 🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇🦇
Today, 7 months after it broke, I mustered up the confidence to attempt it. It took me several hours and I ended up gluing the #vertebrae to my hand and having to remove it with an Xacto knife, but it was eventually a successful venture and now the bat hangs *impossibly* high out of the reach of cats.
