Signed, sealed, delivered (so to speak).

Well I think so, it went all French on me  :snooty:
For a man to truly understand rejection, he must first be ignored by a cat.

Dogs believe they are human. Cats believe they are God.

No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch.

Done, this is something I get angry about myself so it's a pleasure to be able to do something to try and help.
Please consider the harder to home cats in rescue.

Isabel - it means 'fatty liver': the birds' livers become enlarged because of the force-feeding. That's what gives them the 'distinctive texture'. Wikipedia has a comprehensive entry on foie gras.

Have signed as I am wholly against the exploitation of any animal.  I do wonder whether any notice is taken of all the petitions - and I sign a lot of them!

I'm never sure how much influence petitions have, to tell the truth, but I've signed this in the hope that it will help stop this abhorrent practice. I've boycotted foie gras (I speak a few words of French and the meaning of the name makes me shudder) all my life. Even if you don't sign the petition, please don't eat foie gras, here or en France.

PS For non-French speakers, you need to complete all the fields for your submission to count.

Signed......dreadful, cruel, disgusting, abhorrent.  There are not words enough to describe this cruel practice.

CC towers have asked me to put a link to a petition to sign to help the animals involved in Foie Gras factories.
The manufacture of Foie Gras is done within production factories where thousands of animals are industrially force-fed by machines inducing atrocious suffering. The ducks and geese are force-fed by electropneumatic systems with approximately 800 g of corn a day where the half is injected in 3 to 5 seconds (the equivalent of 8 kg of noodles in 3 to 5 seconds for a man). The force-feding is done during 2 to 3 weeks in where the geese and ducks are locked in exiguous cages limiting and restricting all movements of the animal so that a faster fattening.

Please sign the e petiton here.

Thanks
