Hi girls Following on from the "are you a dog or cat person" thread I felt that there are a lot of dog and cat loving gals among us WOL'ers so I was wondering if you would just give two seconds of your time to do the following please... Please go to www.heathermillsmccartney.com and sign the petition to outlaw the us of dogs and cats for the fur industry, the pictures are fairly graphic so be warned... but its worthy cause and its gaining momentum....what happens to these guys is dispicable, skinned alive and tortured before they are killed for their fur...and alot of these doggies have collars on which means they were once someones beloved pet... :twisted: I'll end on this...I know its a different country ..as in China and its not something that directly affects our own lives....but just imagine if it was your pet dog in those pictures.... Thanks so much for yere time Boo xx

Well done Boo for highlighting this. Absolutely sickening but unfortunately a reality. When you have the likes of that J Lo and her big fat ass wrapped up in fur it would make your blood boil, it isn't as if she hasn't enough clothes. Like you Lucky if I ever met someone wearing fur, I think I'd be in court for GBH. Sarah

A lot of people who wear fur may not realise but some of it may be cat or dog. Obviously larger items, such as fur coats are usually quite obviously made from one animal or another, but smaller items aren't subject to the same standards and tests. That scarf you have with a fur trim, the boots with fur detail, the little toy kitten in a basket that's sitting on your desk, the lining of gloves. It could be cat fur or dog fur. These smaller items are easier to smuggle, easier to label falsely and easier to disguise as other kinds of fur. So, let's all do our bit for our furry friends.

Done - just signed the peititon and am going to post the letter off when I get a stamp this evening. Thanks as I didn't know cats and dogs were also used for fur. I have now emailed all my 'pet' loving friends with your info above so hopefully get more signatures and letters sent.
