Thumbs down Sea kittens

PETA is so sad... http://features.peta.org/PETASeaKittens/index.asp

Here's their "interesting facts" about sea kittens, too!

Contrary to popular belief, the technical term for sea kitten offspring is "baby sea kitties," not "caviar." Many sea kittens build nests where they can raise their baby sea kitties, and others collect small rocks off the sea floor to make widdle hiding pwaces where they can rest.

I'm so glad to know their called baby sea kitties! I always called them fry, man was I wrong! And this "make widdle hiding pwaces" makes it SO much easier to understand!

Some sea kittens tend well-kept gardens. They encourage the growth of tasty algae and weed out the types that they don't like. It is particularly tragic when people eat these sea kittens, as their precious little gardens become wild and overgrown in their absence.

I guess the poor sea kittens get devasted when they learn their friends gardens have become like they are in the wild!

Many male sea kittens woo potential partners by singing to them. While this is not particularly easy to do underwater coherently, female sea kittens don't generally seem to mind.

Really?!?!? WOW. Neons father sea kitten sang to his mother sea kitten! I wonder how the sea kittens sing in the water!

Sea kittens talk to each other through squeaks, squeals, and other low-frequency sounds that humans can only hear through special instruments. Most ichthyologists—scientists who specialize in sea kitten biology—agree that this is just about the cutest thing ever.

I guess it's not just whales and dolphins who make the squeaks, sea kittens do to! And YAY, they are cute, too! My cute little sea kittens see their reflection and begin doing cute squeaking as they attempt to kill it!

Like their surface-dwelling cousins, the land kittens, sea kittens enjoy being petted. Their lack of arms makes it difficult for them to pet back, but they often gently rub against each other as a sign of affection.

Neon and Ryu and the cories want me to pet them?!?!?! YAY. I'll just hug them and rug their bellies all day! And I had no idea that Neon is related to a cat, his natural predator! WOW! How, I wonder, did cats lose their fur and grow scales and gills and big tails and such?!

The people who run PETA are so smart and their facts are sooo correct

I know, so over dramatic, but some of this stuff just drives me insane...

*cough* just one more...

Of course, if you look at it another way, what all this really means is that fish need to fire their PR guy—stat. Whoever was in charge of creating a positive image for fish needs to go right back to working on the Britney Spears account and leave our scaly little friends alone. You've done enough damage, buddy. We've got it from here. And we're going to start by retiring the old name for good. When your name can also be used as a verb that means driving a hook through your head, it's time for a serious image makeover. And who could possibly want to put a hook through a sea kitten?

So according to PETA the reason that fish are kept as pets andpeople fish them is because one man was hired by the fish to make a good image for them and he said "bad things" about them and THAT'S why people kill and eat fish, it's all that guys fault.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

I read their 'bedtime stories' what a fricken joke. I was curious and thought: Oh my god how disturbing is this? If a little kid finds that...Dang we'll have the lawsuit of the century...

On the good news: Yay! That means that I can go pet Maka and Aki!

Ugh PETA you fail. Angering parents by giving kids fake happy meals with dead animals in them and disturbing childlike stories. I can't say what I think of them on here. They're sick freaks who need real lives. Like actually taking care of animals instead of scaring away people from them.

I have been a vegan for a long time..and even I think peta is pretty ridiculous...Their website is contradicting..One moment they're saying WOOL is cruel...Then on another part of their site they're linking to stores that are "leather free" but sell mainly wool and silk clothing with maybe 5% of the items being vegan MAYBE 5%...

I even pointed this out to them once...Their response was lame as expected...

I almost named my yellow delta sea kitten for sillies though...

Peta really does a disservice to those who truly care about animal rights and welfare, because whenever anyone hears someone is interested in animal welfare they automatically think of peta and ridiculous campaigns like this. I like some of what peta does/says, but their good information and campaigns are undercut by this kind of nonsense.

And the worse thing is they brag about driving around and killing animals they find on the streets. They kill animals to 'save' animals. They're murderers.
