No Fur Conversations
I’m doing an article on fur boots for one of the companies I write for. I am including faux fur and real fur only as a choice for those that want to read about it.
Me: These Fendi boots are over $1700 in American money and £1100 in UK money and they are raccoon fur. They don’t even say if the raccoons are treated humanely or if they are killed for the fur.
Rich: How do you think they get the fur from the raccoon?
Me: Maybe they shear them.
Rich: They only shear sheep as far as I know.
Me: Does this mean my rabbit fur coat in the 80’s caused bunny deaths? 😦
PS do not try to look this up and see for yourself or you’ll only see awful sites from PETA that you don’t want to hear about. In my defense, I didn’t know about bunnies dying in the 80’s for my pimpin’ jacket.
