Kat Von D Is No Friend to Cats
|Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue/cc by 2.0|
You would think that someone with the name Kat would know better, but Kat Von D committed a big Kat Von D, as in “Don’t,” when she bought a hairless cat from a breeder. Again.
In a recent episode of her reality TV series, L.A. Ink, Von D visits a breeder and plunks down a sizeable chunk of change for a sphinx cat. Oh, how we wish that the show’s producers had followed up with a visit to the local animal shelter to show the cat who will have to be euthanized because he or she just lost the chance at a home.
While millions of animals are euthanized in shelters every year and millions more die on the streets, unwanted and abandoned, there is no such thing as “responsible” breeding—only greedy animal pimps who make money at animals’ expense.
Here’s hoping that Von D starts to L.A. think about what her money is supporting. For robbing yet another cat in a shelter of a chance at a family and contributing to animal homelessness, Ms. D earned herself an “F.”
