This is horrible, but it doesn't surprise me at all. For years there have been stories 'doing the rounds' about cat thieves, visiting an area and taking , say, all the ginger cats they can find, or all the black ones. At one time, it became quite the fashion to shave a stripe off your cat's back, so that the fur-thieves wouldn't want it. I heard of one area where about 20 cats, all the same colour, were taken over a few days.
I would definitely support any anti-fur campaign, although I have no problem with using the skins of animals that are killed for meat, as that means then that no part of the animal is wasted, and saves other resources. But to kill an animal, and only to use the fur, that is wasteful and disgusting. People who wear such fur deserve the abuse they get I reckon.
Besides, cat fur looks much better on the cat, don't you think?
