PETA Criticises Justin Bieber Over His New $35,000 Exotic Kittens
The 25-year-old singer recently bought the felines - which are part-domestic cat and part-African Servals - for $20,000 (£16,214) and $15,000 (£12,160) respectively from the Illinois-based breeder Select Exotics, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
But while they undeniably make a cute pair - as you would bloody well hope for $35,000 - PETA isn't best pleased with the singer's acquisition of the furry friends.
The organisation's senior vice president, Lisa Lange, made her feelings perfectly clear - unnecessarily using Biebs' own lyrics against him in the process.
Speaking to PEOPLE, she said: "Baby, baby, baby, nooooooo. Justin Bieber could inspire his fans around the world to save a life by adopting a cat from a local animal shelter - rather than fuelling 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.'"
Sorry, Ms Lange - what do you mean?
The Biebersaurus doesn't seem particular bothered by the criticism though, nor do the 226,000 people who have already followed an Instagram page he set up for his pets.
The Canadian said in a post that he would send the cats' millionth follower some free clobber, which is an incredible position to be in if you think about it - imagine being so well-known/popular that you could set up an Instagram page for your cats and talk about their millionth follower as a matter of when rather than if.
Bieber first announced he was getting a kitten at the end of August, offering an explanation of the name Sushi which made almost no sense at all.
He said: "I'm getting a cat tomorrow and The name will be sushi!!! Thanks guys! I can call her sooosh Magooosh and I'm very happy about it. I can also in a baby voice call her TOOSHIEEE BUM BUM or . Shooshi wowl .. read it outloud how it's spelt . Also sushi Poo.. or just TUNA." [sic]
