Leticia Olsen, That's why they had the curved needle in the picture. It goes through skin much easier.

👍🏼#5 Catgut Yes it’s right. It made of horse and sheep intestines and used for closing wound by the surgeons after operating in the theatres and also called ligatures. But it’s not being use anymore nowadays. Catguts nowadays are made of nylon and dissolvable linen and still called ligatures.

Sandra Johnson, Hare today, gone tomorrow! BTW...if one is a meat eater, rabbit is high protein...low in fat.
