From [url]http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/3009537.stm[/url]

[b]BBC News has seen evidence which suggests that cats are being farmed for their skins in the European Union.

It is thought that tens of thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands of cat and dog skins are traded in Europe each year.

Campaigners say that now is the time for national governments or the European Commission to act.

Europe, it seems, is a magnet for cat and dog fur.

Cat blankets, so the aficionados say, are good for rheumatism.

Dog pelts are often labelled misleadingly and sold as the fur of some exotic, even mythical beast.

A video seen by BBC correspondent Tim Franks shows one Belgian furrier displaying a blanket he says was made from cats farmed in Belgium.

What is more, he says that stray cats and dogs are rounded up and skinned

LOL, talk about old news. Cat fur is an ancient folk remedy against (not for) rheumatism. Wrap it around your waist. It would work with a live cat still in his fur, but they never seem to hold still long enough ;)
