It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s Sammy the Sea Kitten!

Written by PETA | August 5, 2009

Freeda Fish has transformed into Sammy the Sea Kitten.
Freeda to Sammy


Lookin’ fierce with her new do, Freeda Fish—er, I mean Sammy the Sea Kitten—has hit the road and is handing out plush sea kitten toys across the country to children visiting aquariums. She wants the kiddies (and their parents) to know that sea kittens, like land kittens and puppies, are sensitive, intelligent animals who feel pain and deserve respect—and who definitely shouldn’t be cruelly confined to aquariums, violently killed for food, or painfully hooked for “sport.”

So far, kids have been eager to embrace Freeda’s new persona, but who do you prefer—Freeda Fish or Sammy the Sea Kitten?

    Congratulations Igor! You are officially dumber than a fish!

  • Matt Greenwood says:

    I like either one!! Hehe

  • Igor says:

    Chelsea Are we talking about fish real fish? There’s no way a fish intelligence could be comparable to a real kitten or puppy.

  • Kim says:

    Although the sea kitten idea is cute by using such a character PETA runs the risks of be mocked. Many people think of PETA as an organization supported by ‘crazies’. We need to get the point across without coming across as too radical. A more realistic character would be appropriate.

    What the heck is a sea kitten? Is it like a metaphor that fish are kittens only underwater?!? I hope this isn’t obvious and I’m not the only one who doesn’t understand it. lol Just wondering

  • Edward says:

    Oh Shelly if you took that literally obviously rocks up you on the intelligence scale.

  • Chelsea says:

    Yeah Igor fish are intelligent. Though it may not be comparable to human intelligence the remarkable things that have been hardwired into their DNA are amazing. Maybe you should do some research before going out of your way to upset people that obviously care about animals which include fish or sea kittens!

  • Cindy says:

    ANY LIVING CREATURE FEELS PAIN! Stop killing living things!!!

  • Shelly says:

    Oh Igor if that makes you laugh obviously fish up you on the intelligence scale.

  • Igor says:

    “sea kittens like land kittens and puppies are sensitive intelligent animals” Fish? Intelligent? Don’t make me laugh.

    FINALLY! When I was 9 yrs old I decided not to eat fish. The main reason I did it was because of the dolphins getting caught in the nets of fisherman and two because I didn’t believe it was right going into the ocean and killing fish! Everyone laughs when they hear that story but I have stuck to my guns and I still believe it now 21 years later. Fish are beautiful and should be left alone in their environment and should not even be used as pets in aquariums. I thank you so much for FINALLY bringing this cause foward because now I feel I am not alone

    I like them both can’t they both appear at the same time? Some people will not get the Sea Kitten reference right away.

  • Shari says:

    Ahhhhh…wish I was there! Have fun Freda the Sea Kitten!

  • Shelly says:

    I like them both but Sammy is too cute with the cat mask!
