Double Trouble was a gentle tabby
cat who deserved to be in the home of someone who loved and protected her. She
could have been your cat. Instead, she was locked in a lab, tortured, and

of Health urging the agency to
stop funding this cruel UW experiment.
Cats imprisoned in
laboratories need your voice. If Double Trouble's story brought tears to your
eyes, please take action to speak out against this atrocity. Tell the world
