Los Angeles – Following Sarah Jessica Parker’s announcement that she and Matthew Broderick have adopted Lotus—the kitten who appeared as Carrie’s cat “Shoe” on And Just Like That … and who originally came from an animal shelter—PETA is sending the couple a “Kitten Care Package” to say thank you for adopting and not buying a cat from a breeder or pet store. Says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange:
And just like cat, the feline formerly known as “Shoe” has found a perfect fit with Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, who have set a fantastic “adopt—don’t shop” example. PETA is sending the family a basket of toys and catnip treats for all their cats to enjoy, along with a copy of PETA President Ingrid Newkirk’s 250 Vital Things Your Cat Wants You to Know so that Lotus’ new guardians can give him the perfect life in the city.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
