According to on-line statistics, over 70 million animals in the United States alone are subjected to animal testing each year. They are scalded, poisoned, blinded, maimed, and genetically manipulated. They endure traumatic injury, live vivisection and more in the name of science and research. Mice, rats, rabbits, apes dogs and cats...each a living, feeling, being who suffers fear and pain.
In the opinion of Confucius Cat, animal testing should be banned. These tests are CRUEL. Most are performed without painkillers. Most result in permanent injury and death. When a small number of humans subject animals to this pain and suffering, they create a stain of guilt upon the whole human race. ANIMALS HAVE RIGHTS and are not placed on this earth for the use of humans. There can be no peace in the world while the pain of these animals cries out into the universe. Worse, most of these tests NOT NECESSARY since they are done merely to protect commercial companies from lawsuit. Moreover, the same tests may be performed by multiple companies who do not share information. The tragedy of this is compounded by the fact that animal tests are NOT RELIABLE. Humans are different from animals. So a medicine or cosmetic that is safe and effective for animals may not be safe or reliable in humans. (See www.BUAV.org). Moreover, there are effective ALTERNATIVES TO ANIMAL TESTING such as human volunteers. (See www.stopanimalstest.com). These alternatives are often less expensive and more reliable.
This week’s purrs are dedicated to stopping the practice of “pound seizures” which is the selling of cats and dogs by animal shelters. That pets who were supposed to be protected within SHELTERS should be subjected to the torture of animal testing and research is unconscionable. Animal shelters should be a sanctuary. A place where the dogs and cats can be safe until their forever home is found.
"If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals."
-- Albert Einstein
