JoAnn's?  Thread and needle?

 :lol:
I gave out a bunch of suture kits here. How many are you looking for?
I'm not sure how many I got left, if any, to spare, but I'll look.



You don't need them right away do you?
I mean, you're not bleeding at the moment........right?    :lol:

Superglue is often an option. Also, tampons are good for plugging holes and sanitary pads make quick and easy field dressings.
A kitten told me to do it.

So, I suppose I can spare a couple kits. As long as I can remember where I put them. :lol:

When we were kids, my brother and I sewed each other up with dental floss. It's quite sanitary and it's waxed for easy removal. And, we didn't have to do any explaining on the way to the emergency room!
