Pelts

Can somebody help me identify these pelts? I bought em in a thrift store for next to nothing and I thought the middle one was a small fox and the right one at least somewhat looked like to me as a badger.
Looking up the colouration on these animals made me realize they're definitely not that, they're also not that big, the left one looks like a ground squirrel so I'm not worried about that but the two I can't identify make me worried they might be from dogs.
They used to make pelts from pets here so I'm pretty worried, I've found cat pelts in the same thrift store a year back.

    the russians should have never left this ugly country. now I have to read your ESL homosexualry about how you differentiate between random mammal x and random mammal y and cannot even respect the product the being's life was taken for, effectively rendering it useless.

    I don't get why it matters so much if one of them was a cat. It's already dead and skinned. Are you worried people will accuse you of killing the cat? Just explain you got it from a thrift store.
    >Should I just throw it in the trash?
    So take the original waste and make it an even bigger one? I really don't understand the gypsy superstition here. The cat is dead and skinned, if it even is a cat, it isn't going to curse you from the land of wind and ghosts.

      I don't care about some superstition, it's just that I love cats and dogs, I'm not gonna fricking wear one. Just feels too bad for me to do.

        But you were okay with wearing foxes and badgers...? Just take the pelt back where you got it from if it bothers you so much.

          I somewhat have categories on animals in my head, it's either for meat and produce or for companionship and labour, I don't use stuff from the latter category. Just feels wrong. Same as if I were eating the cat to me as wearing it. Cats and dogs deserve burials.

    So update, I thought it wasn't a cat, maybe the dog but when I brought it to my mom if she would recognize it she almost immediatly said the right one is from a cat with quite a bit of certainty, without any hints from me on what it might be, brother said dog. I'm like 90% sure it's one of those. Now I do not know what to do with a cat/dog pelt. Should I bury it? Should I just throw it in the trash?

      dude how can you not tell the differences in the furs. have you not touched/examined a cat/dogs fur in your life? just look at the individual guard/down hairs. do they look like a fricking dogs? use some logic or just post pictures where we can actually see the hairs

    Left side is a wild rabbit. Center is a marten. The right side has that white piebald marking so probably a domestic animal. Probably a large breed of meat rabbit. A cat is possible but the lay of the fur doesn’t look like a cat’s. Not a badger because they have bristling coats.

      The left is not a rabbit tail by any stretch of the imagination

        Just looks like a strip of mutilated hide on an already mutilated pelt. Is there a squirrel native to the area with a coat like that?

        Honestly the middle really doesn't seam like a marten, any marten you looked at, in live or pelt form doesn't have that thick or defined black stripe.
        Also, even if it wasn't a country pet pelt it could've been one imported from China, they used to do that and apparently there was a lot of that trade back in the 80s and 90s here, with even the army accidentally ordering like 5 tonnes of cat leather.

        Hmm… Could be another rabbit pelt lol. If someone needed cheaper material as filler or trim when making Eurasian wolverine coats a bunch of rabbit skins would be the go to. Check for signs of dye.

          I hoped it would be dyed when I saw your post but no signs of any colour on the underside, no spots or anything, just light grey/beige.

            I have to go back to guessing marten honestly. European pine martens have been fur farmed in the past and unique color morphs not seen in the wild can pop up that way. The black on tan is definitely a mustelid characteristic.

          So the left one was a ground squirrel (sysel obecný) but googling it they're not that big, they grow to about 20cm and the pelt is 50cm long front to the base of the tail, it's probably a field rabbit, no actual squirrels are of that size or colouring here, they're mostly red or ark brown here

          Its a tail, you can tell by the coloring, dorsal stripe etc.

      Czech republic, I need pelts for LARPing and i didn't think it that much through, only now I've realized the connection and remembered "hey, I noticed those cat pelts a year back"
      People used to make pelts from cats for lumbar warmers for old people, especially old farm people but that was way back in 1900-1960, maybe into the 1970s. I mean there are still people that would buy em from a thrift store.
      They don't even price their stuff they just have a bin of fur hats and fur warmers, I'm still definitely coming back for some marten fur I noticed there, I only realized it was so cheap when they wanted like 6€ from me at the check out for the furs and some aprons

        I'm still coming back today or tommorrow for some marten and maybe mink skins that I noticed, didn't pick em up since they didn't have a price tag at the bin
