Bonsai kittens - sick hoax or sicker reality?

I couldnt believe my eyes when I saw the website about Bonsai kittens (from one of those chain emails that come my way occasionally, and which I normally ignore). I honestly couldnt tell if the whole website was an elaborate, tasteless joke or whether the chain mail senders were, for once, justified in their spamming. There have been enough chain emails about the 7-year-old cancer patient or the 6-year-old brain surgery candidate, or even the "make millions by sending this email to 10 others" routine, so I guess I was sceptical about this one as well. But I thought I'd check out the site anyway... and how utterly repulsive and cruel it turned out to be! I cant believe there are people in the world who could deliberately grow kittens in bottles. Cant believe they have the gall to advertise themselves. Maybe it's a hoax... a hoax in unbelievably bad taste, but still only an elaborate leg-puller designed to shock and horrify. If not, wouldnt some animal cruelty organisation have created a ruckus? I hate to think that it ISNT a hoax... it made me feel almost physically sick. I can tell you that was one chain email I was happy to pass on...

Don't like cats as much as I like dogs.. but this really is sick!

Me too, Harish. I dont like cats much either... but that doesnt mean I want them to be treated sadistically!

Shyam. the sadism at it peak of cruelty and arrogance. Why would anyone want kitten in the shape of vessel. What if I want the person involved in this act in the size of a small one inch tube.

It's a hoax.

Tasteless, yes, but still just a prank.
