In the video I linked to in my previous post, people mentioned the cat issue. They were referring to recent conflict surrounding research on cats like the one shown here in photos PETA obtained from the University of Wisconsin-Madison through FOIA.

I saw it the other day, looked at the orange tabby sleeping contentedly by me on his bed, and I was shaken. I’m not interested in debating PETA’s tactics or the accuracy of their communications (including this one), the use of “emotive” images in moral debates, the progress of medicine, or anything else here. I just wanted to share the pictures and my reaction. I’m still shaken, and saddened.
