No one in the world needs a mink coat but a mink. ~Murray Banks

Fur farms around the world subject, raccoons, dogs, rabbits, foxes, mink and other animals to cruel lives spent in wire cages only to die of inhumane neck-breaking or electrocution. Some video from china shows animals, including dogs, being skinned alive.

Each year over 50 million animals each year are slaughtered for their fur…for the sake of some person somewhere to feel they “look” good. There can be nothing more infuriatingly narcissistic. Can you imagine believing that your appearance gives you the right to inflict unimaginable suffering on another being?

Buying fur and fur trimmed items also results in the killing of dogs and cats. Most dog and cat victims are killed in Asia and their fur exported worldwide. While the U.S. bans the sale of dog and cat fur, it still slips into this country on unlabeled or falsely labeled items.
However, many dogs and cats- along with wild animals- are killed accidentally in indiscriminately placed traps.

Again…as with many of the issues on which we have purred…the sources of this cruelty is ultimately greed. Therefore, we must appeal to that greed…if nothing else… and refuse to buy products from Asia, most critically those with fur or fur trim.

This week we purr to end the slaughter. We purr for life happily and safely lived for all animals. We purr for the spread of compassion. We purr for the triumph of PEACE.

It means that if I’ve used a product and liked it, or it's a company I buy from and trust and they have affiliate programs, I sign up. Then, when I mention that product or company in one of my blog posts, I use my affiliate link. Should you end up buying something as a result of one of those links, I might get a little sumpin’ for my treat fund.

We are too late again, but we will still purr for peace and furs for animals not fashion.

I agree it's cruel to steal coats from animals, including those from scaley critters too. How would humans like if it someone took their skin coat from them?
