    Hi,
    I recently tried 4 different vendors to try to order preserved cats for dissection and none were available. I was told it was at least partially due to trap-neuter-release, which isn’t all bad I guess. You can still get frozen whole cats. We are going to try one but are concerned that the freeze/thaw cycle will have an adverse effect on some of the anatomical features.
    Does anyone have a source foe preserved cats? Or what are you using as alternatives? We are going with rabbits and mink…
    Thanks in advance,

    I called several sources and was given backorder dates ranging from 3-6 months. I ended up ordering rabbits. Evidently the “No kill” movement is causing issues with cat supplies 😉
