Bonsai Kittens
For some reason I've been getting a lot of email lately about Bonsai Kittens. I can't figure out why, since that hoax is almost three years old now. But I guess interest in some hoaxes just never dies (unlike those poor kittens in the jars).

lol, those emails are quite funny, who would be mentally challenged enough to actually believe that?! i mean i will admit that when i first recieved that petition thing in my email i was shocked and appaled, but now i sit and laugh like a psycho at the people who actually think its true, if they would get off their soap box and think logically for a mili-second, maybe a speck of sense would come into view...... sorry if i sound a bit harsh to all of you animal lovers, i am one myself and have 2 cats, but COME ON!

It's not actually my website, but rather another concerned citizen's. I just made a link to it to help spread the word of his worthy campaign.

OK JUST TO TELL ALL OF YOU...EVERYONE KNOWS THAT THEY ARE FAKE,A HOAX, NOT REAL! BUT JUST EVEN THE THOUGHT OF STUFFING A KITTEN IN A JAR IS LIKE THE THOUGHT OF STUFFING A BABY INTO A JAR....ITS JUST WRONG.
