Other Ways to Skin a Cat

Show the cat your collection of vintage Disney figurines and offer to trade one for his skin.

Tell the cat that skin is an unrealistic standard of beauty perpetuated by the media and Maybelline.

Assure the cat that Axl Rose has promised to release Chinese Democracy II upon successful receipt of skin.

Explain that snakes shed their skins every year, and that’s why people take them seriously.

Reverse psychology.
