Posing with her adorable cat, Zula, and wearing a trademark pink #OOTD, YouTube superstar, lifestyle blogger, and Zoella’s bestie Sprinkle of Glitter is the latest celeb to stand up for animals in her new ad for peta2 shot by photographer Paul Michael Hughes.
“You know those ‘crazy cat ladies’ who think of their kitties like babies? That’s me,” says Sprinkle of Glitter. “To me, cats are the most wonderfully loving, sweet animals, and the thought of wearing their fur is awful. I feel so passionately about this campaign and am proud to be a part of it.”
Here’s something to remember when it comes to buying clothing or accessories made with fur: Animals are not ours to wear.
It’s pretty simple! Animals need the fur on their backs—humans don’t. There’s no reason to wear real leather or fur when coats like these exist:
Every fur cuff, fur collar, or piece of fur trim comes at a pretty high cost to the animals who were killed for it. Foxes, rabbits, minks, and sometimes even dogs and cats (like Zula) often suffer in cramped wire cages before they’re beaten to death, electrocuted, drowned, or even skinned alive for their fur.
If you wouldn’t wear your cat—and let’s be real, you definitely wouldn’t—join Sprinkles of Glitter by not wearing ANY fur. ♥
