Several bloggers dedicate their blogs to cats. I in turn dedicate this post to them. In no particular order: http://weggieboy.wordpress.com/ http://angelswhisper2011.wordpress.com https://kraftycatcreations.wordpress.com https://pussycats3.wordpress.com/ http://purrandroar.com https://purrfectkitties.wordpress.com/ https://creamcoffee22.wordpress.com/about/ http://animalmikelane.wordpress.com
UNITE AGAINST FUR
MY BELOVED CATS HAVE MODELLED THIS SENTIMENT IN DIFFERENT POSES:
CATS ARE OFTEN SKINNED FOR FUR TRIM IN CERTAIN COUNTRIES.
Dedicated to all nonhuman animals who live and die in captivity!
Nicki Minaj is an American rapper who attended New York’s February Fashion Week, 2015.
She was wearing a coat made up of around fifteen foxes.
Sadly these rappers have a huge following who don’t seem to care about cruelty to nonhuman animals.
As mentioned in my previous post, Kim Kardashian is currently married to rapper Kanya West, a fur addict of note.
This is Kim in her FURKINI, in the snow. If hundreds of small creatures weren’t brutally killed for this publicity stunt, I would find it amusing.
There are other more tasteful and useful ways to show off one’s body.
As pointed out by blogger buddy Nancy @ ‘Our World’ https://nackpets.wordpress.com/ Khloe Kardashian is another story.
Last year Khloe made an

Previously Khloe participated in PeTa’s I’d rather go naked than wear fur campaign.
How did these sisters turn out to be so different?
Kudos to Khloe.
Red Paint to Kim.
So what does 73-year-old English ex-Beatle Paul McCartney have in common with 37-year-old American rapper Kanye West?
As far as I can see NOTHING other than they have recently produced a single, Only One, together.
So why should this bother me? Well …
Not only has Sir Paul McCartney written incredible songs such as Yesterday, Hey Jude and Let it Be, but for many years he has been an animal activist.
His saying, “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian”, is often quoted.
McCartney teamed up with PeTA to produce a shocking video titled Glass Walls. This video exposes the horror in slaughterhouses, factory farms, live-animal transport and the fishing industry.
McCartney also explains the massive cost to the environment for which the meat industry is directly responsible.
McCartney has supported many animal rights causes.
Paul’s daughter, Stella McCartney does not use leather, skins (i.e. python, crocodile and other exotics), or furs in any of her fashion items.
On the other hand , Kanye West ~ rapper, songwriter and fashion designer ~ is rarely seen without wearing animal fur of some kind, be it a huge fur coat or fur trim.
West has a fondness for women who also wear fur, as seen below.
Help, I need some help!
Am I the only one who feels that McCartney’s recent collaboration with West is hypocritical?
It has also perplexed several hip hop fans, as evident from their comments below:
‘Who is Paul McCartney?, one fan wrote on Twitter while another posted: ‘This Paul McCartney guy gonna be huge.’ Thanks to Kanye West.
Another said, ‘who tf is paul mccartney???!??! this is why i love kanye for shining light on unknown artists’.

A BIG THANK YOU TO Umut Sandoval Erkut, who is originally from Turkey, for sending me the video below.
It is compiled by Turkish people against fur. There are English sub titles.
Sadly many fur retailers go to Turkey to source fur items.
The Istanbul Leather and Fur Fair is held in Turkey where leather and fur dealers from all around the world sell their wares “at a very reasonable price” (http://www.istanbulderifuari.com/en/index.php).
These items are already made up and there is no way of knowing from where and how they are sourced.
Not that this really matters as ALL fur produce is derived from cruel methods.
Accolades to those compassionate people who compiled this excellent anti-fur video
