Grab a Pussy!

Grab a Pussy!

Animal shelters across the UK are in the midst of the 'kitten season', where countless kittens are in need of a loving home.

PETA have worked with local outdoor advertisers in London to create a billboard that features a cat next to the words- "Grab a Pussy! Adopt a Cat From Your Local Shelter". PETA US are doing the same in New York City too.

The new campaign urges people to adopt one of the many homeless cats that are currently in shelters and rescue centres all over the UK.

"The sensationalism of the US election has rendered many other important issues invisible", says PETA Founder Ingrid Newkirk. "We hope this ad will encourage people to think for a second about the crisis facing cats and other animals and - if they have the time, love, patience, and funds to do so - to consider opening their homes to one or two beautiful cats from a shelter."

One female cat that has not been spayed can have up to 370,000 kittens in seven years alone. PETA's motto reads in part; "animals are not ours to abuse in any way" and adds that if anyone wants to adopt a kitten to be sure to do so from a local shelter and have them spayed or neutered. Breeders and pet stores only exacerbate the problem of the homeless animal crisis.

    I love this idea. And I love what it has to say: Rescue a cat (or two). Shelters don't have room for all of the cats and kittens who deserve loving homes.

    Love it. I hope PETA's ad can help "trump" the animal homelessness crisis.

    Thank you for this positive and informative piece. I truly hope that PETA's brilliant ad opens peoples' eyes and hearts to the staggering animal overpopulation problem. I also hope It encourages people to open their homes to a new feline family member.
