The Swiss government is banning the cat fur trade after a rash of incidents in which domestic house cats have been poached from their homes to supply soft pelts. We can't decide if we're more upset that people wear cat fur, fur at all, or that people are stealing pets so that other people can wear fur. Ick to it all. [Telegraph]
You know, I just don't understand people who wear fur. It's not even an ethical thing for me — I am completely creeped- and grossed-out by the feel of fur, even faux fur. It makes my skin crawl.
I do, however, enjoy suede and leather. Hm. I wonder why?
