In case you were wondering, cats can’t wear condoms – but if only they could.
According to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) senior vice president, Daphna Nachminovitch, just one female cat and her offspring can produce a staggering 370,000 kittens in seven years.
"Dogs and cats can't wear condoms, so PETA is calling on their guardians to take responsibility and spay or neuter their animal companions," says Nachminovitch.
To further the point that Mittens isn’t able to cloak his joker, representatives of PETA will be in Downtown Milwaukee on Wednesday, May 4, dressed up in large pink and blue condom costumes and holding signs that read "Condoms Won't Work: Fix Your Cat."
The condom-clad PETA people will be at the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and Old World Third Street at noon. The plan is to "dance around and hand out leaflets on animal sterilization."
