Kate Moss' £4,000 stuffing


I disagree with people having animals stuffed specifically for decoration. Wouldn't a fake bird have worked just as well? I also didn't know that Kate was on of the "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" girls. It seems that PETA only considers Naomi and Cindy hypocrites.
Kate Moss' £4,000 stuffing

Friday, 4th August 2006, 13:43


LIFE STYLE EXTRA (UK) - Kate Moss has spent £4,000 on a stuffed tit.

The supermodel bought the sculpture of a blue tit 'sleeping' on a prayer book to decorate her country home in the Cotswolds, England.

The unusual ornament was created by fine art taxidermist Polly Morgan and is titled 'To Every Seed His Own Body'.

Kate, 32, once posed naked in an anti-fur campaign for animal rights group PETA but has since been seen wearing a silver fox-fur waistcoat and a monkey-fur jacket.

She has already come to blows with best friends Stella McCartney and Sadie Frost, who are both keen animal rights campaigners, for wearing fur.

Taxidermy, the stuffing of animals to use as decoration, is highly frowned upon by animal welfare groups but is having a revival of late.

The support of fashion icon Kate Moss can only help to boost the popularity for stuffed birds, which can even be bought on internet auction site eBay now.

eh... i don't think anyone who eats meat (like me) has a right to complain about a stuffed bird. On the other hand I do find these things INCREDIBLY scary and ugly. I don't understand how anyone would want to have a corpse in their house.

^ I'm really suprised Kate was one of the PETA girls! I know she loves fur and I'm suprised she would wear fur or own a stuffed bird if she did that campaign!

You're right. Hopefully the bird was already dead (maybe found on the side of the road or something ).

If not, if (for some god forsaken reason) the taxidermists actually killed the bird just for the sake of stuffing it...then yes, that is very cruel and hopefully PETA will throw a fit.

I agree-that is totally disgusting. I didn't even realize that it was legal to use monkey fur.

I totally agree! Shocking & disgusting, considering monkeys are our next genetic relatives...

I didn´t even think monkeys were that furry...I thought it was coarse straight hair, like eyebrows or something. Le gross Kate.

Every single time I think of monkey fur I think of Whoopi Goldberg's outfit on The color purple when she attends her father funeral

Since I seem to be the only one feeling giggly, I take it that this blue tit is a sort of bird?

i don't think monkey fur is that disgusting.
I've been to indonesia and monkeys are just as populated as the people in some indonesian villages!!
and very usually because i'd say a place like indonesia has so much respect for their religion and gods.
they would only take the fur of a monkey when it would become sick and in pain and needs to be put down.
