Fashion publicist and Kell on Earth star Kelly Cutrone's next big clients are rabbits, foxes, and minks. Cutrone is publicizing the suffering inflicted on animals who are killed for their fur in her new book, Normal Gets You Nowhere. The couture connoisseur writes, "I happen to think that, despite what industry insiders might tell you, it's absolutely gross that fashion people are still celebrating fur. What is so sexy about the annihilation of animals for clothing?"
For serious fashion advice, Cutrone encourages people to visit PETA's website. "I hate to break it to you," she writes, "but if you think fur's glamorous, it doesn't mean you have fabulous taste; it means you've been programmed to be totally numb to suffering."
Normal might get you nowhere in Cutrone's book, but kindness to animals gets you everywhere. Join her in saying "furget it" to fur.

Veteran fashionista and new vlogger Kelly Cutrone recently confessed that she kills mice who make their way inside her home because she's "not Pamela Anderson."
Sure, there's only one Pamela Anderson, but we can all work toward emulating Pam's kindness and compassion, so we dashed off a note to Kelly to let her know that humane traps are available and that we're happy to send her a supply. Mice really don't want to bother you any more than you want to interact with them, and like us, they are just trying to live their lives.
Snap traps are awful, but not quite as horrific as glue traps, which are "hell on Earth" for animals who get stuck in them, who sometimes chew their own limbs off in an attempt to escape.
After she uses nonlethal means to put mice back where they belong, perhaps the sequel to Kelly's bestselling book, If You Have to Cry, Go Outside, can be called, If You Have Mice, Take Them Outside.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
