Justin Bieber recently spent $35,000 to purchase two Savannah exotic cats, and PETA isn’t happy about it.
The organization said in a statement to People, “Baby, baby, baby, nooooooo. Justin Bieber could inspire his fans by adopting a cat from a local animal shelter – rather than fueling the dangerous demand for hybrid cats, contributing to the animal overpopulation crisis, and proving that when it comes to helping animals, his stance so far is ‘I don’t care.”
Justin Bieber posted a response to PETA on his Instagram story, writing, “PETA go focus on real problems. Like poaching, and animal brutality. Ur tripping because I want a specific kind of cat? U weren’t tripping when I got my dog Oscar and he wasn’t a rescue.. every pet we get must be a rescue? I believe in adopting rescues but also think there are preferences and that’s what breeders are for.” He adds on another post, “PETA go help with all of the plastic in the ocean, and leave my beautiful cats alone @kittysushiandtuna.”
