PREACH IT! Does 'Octomom' hate kittens? We'll soon find out [poll]
The animal-rights organization tells us exclusively that it has sent a letter to Suleman saying it will pay her an unspecified amount if she places an ad on her lawn. The ad, already mocked up by the PETA people and shown above, reads, “Don’t let your dog or cat become an 'Octomom': Always spay or neuter. PETA.”
The ad also features a photo of a cat with a huge litter of kittens.
“Taking us up on our offer is a win-win situation,” PETA’s Michelle Cho writes to Suleman. “It would help you and your children to keep your home and also reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats. Thank you for your consideration.”
