No problem.

That is a Acme " Lil' Shrieker" Cat Clamp. After you've washed your cat you clamp him up for quick drying. You notice that there is a removable pin for placing the clamped cat in a fixed fixture for suspension so the bottom of the feet dry rapidly.

As a side note, some cats resist this method of drying. Hence the name 'Lil' Shrieker"

This unit was usually sold with a 10 pound box of Acme ' Lil' Gusher" Blood Coagulator.

Acme was a division of Ronco after working with Warner Brothers for years.

Calf fries are yummy but I never used "Burdizzos" - - we always used a sharp knife and kept a paper bag inside the Corral to deposit the jewels in until time to fry.
