Last night on TV, my Mother told me about Larry King reporting about the fur trade in China. They showed a video of crates of cats and dogs on there way to be hung and skinned. This video was shot in '98. My Mother told me about two kittens left in a crate holding each other scared like they new what was going to happen to them. This tears my heart apart. I want to go to China and somehow shut these places down. After more research on the Internet last night I found out that Europe is also doing this. Most times the cat and dog fur is not labeled as such. I feel so helpless. I find it hard to go to sleep at night knowing that animals are suffering in the world either by being tested on, slaughtered for food, skinned for fur, or just being neglected. I am 20, and I am not rich, actually I have no money at this time, because bills seem to suck them up in no time. I don't know what to do. I am consumed by guilt that I am not doing anything besides loving the 4 cats, 1 dog, and 1 hamster I have. Which is not enough by my conscience. GUILT!!! It's hurting right now, that I am sitting at this computer and not physically doing something. What can I do? I deeply care about animals, they can't talk, but they are living beings and have feelings and deserve to be loved and respected. What can I do? Please help me!
