despicable, heart-breaking, bizarre and infuriating to utilize cats for their own means. this is b.s. it is just the same as any testing animals are forced to undergo in the name of 'science'. this is NOT research. this is humans exploiting and abusing animals to score points. get the animals out of there! No animal belongs in a lab.thank you, cher.

Animal experimentation from a scientific point of view it makes no sense, continue to experiment on animals, changing only the number of animals or species, and how the experiment.
The proceeds of animals will not be applicable to humans.
It may be or not to be, but you will only know after trying the test substance to man, and then it will be too late, and the experiment on animals will have been utterly useless, because it will not provide any information.

Signed and noted - thank you so much for this dear Cher
