For a huge animal lover, and especially cat lover such as myself, this is terrible to hear!

Please sign the petition and spread the word. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the ReBlog and spreading the word. Perhaps if we could collectively shame the Aussie gov’t, they would change their inhumane policies toward animals.
