Quote of the Day
We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.
William Ralph Inge
The cat is a dilettante in fur.
In a meat-eating world, wearing leather for shoes and clothes and even handbags, the discussion of fur is childish.

While cats can be infuriating, little old women in fur coats, they make me laugh. Of course, dogs, horses and my highly social chickens are dear to me, too.
Rita Mae Brown

Gary L. Francione
Because the heart beats under a covering of hair, of fur, feathers, or wings, it is, for that reason, to be of no account?

The raccoons, foxes, beavers, chinchillas, minks, rabbits, and yes, sometimes even dogs and cats that are killed for fur are not very different from your beloved dog or cat.

People don't know about the human part of me that really cares about the world. For instance, I don't know what I feel about wearing my furs anymore.
