I had one! When I was a baby in 1968, they did surgery to un-cross my eyes. They used cat-gut... and then had to re-do things because I am allergic to cat-gut sutures.

Go figure.

Ouch...sorry but it sounds disgusting! Cat-gut? Blech!

That's what they used to use. :)

It isn't really catgut but the intestines from other animals.

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. Marcus Aurelius
