Please do not act so ignorant to think that we will not be affected by the loss if the Iriomote Cat! As we ignore the existence of other animals we just move the human race up on the list slowly but surely!

Signed (for "my" cousins) and noted, thanks Ismail for posting.

Fascinating that such a sub-species of cat can fly below the radar for so long (or perhaps I'm just ignorant...). I had not heard of them before. I hope it's not too late to save them, but if the wrong area is being protected i.e. above 100m asl, prospects seem slim for success... :-(

Noted and signed and shared. I said it before and I'll say it again, tigers are not pets they are meant to be free in the wild is were they belong. Caging of these big cats is cruel and inhumane. There is no way that you can possibly supplement their natural diet to keep them healthy.

In Buddhism the highest and universal ideal is to continually work for a permanent end to the suffering of all creatures, not just the human animal, but all animals, all living beings without exception. Buddhism affirms the unity of all living beings, all equally posses the Buddha-nature, and all have the potential to become Buddhas, that is, to become fully and perfectly enlightened. Among the sentient, there are no second-class citizens. According to Buddhist teaching, human beings do not have a privileged, special place above and beyond that of the rest of life. The world is not a creation specifically for the benefit and pleasure of human beings.
