PREACH IT! Does 'Octomom' hate kittens? We'll soon find out [poll]

Octomom peta It’s a nice week to be Octomom. The offers for help just keep on rolling in for our poor media whore in distress. First, a porn company steps forward, offering to defray Nadya Suleman’s mortgage costs if she appears in an adult film. Now, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has announced an offer of its own.

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.”

PETA has yet to hear back from Suleman, but ...

Suleman ... a PETA rep tells me, "we're hopeful."

PETA loves to hook up with troubled celebrities to further its cause. It recently tried to put up a billboard ad featuring Tiger Woods, but the idea was quashed by the golfer’s lawyers.

So why isn't she spade & neutered??

Giving octomom money is like helping Michael Vick rebuild his dog fightig torture castle. Peta is condoning out of control breeding of humans now. Let the tabloids and religious nuts support her. I work hard for animals and send as much as I can to PETA after supporting rescues. I will be KEEPING my cash for my own discretion for animals, since PETA has clearly been taken over by idiots. You're supporting a woman who is clearly mentally ill, helping overpopulate the planet (taking fertility drugs on top of having unsupportable children to start with), which just creates worse conditions for humans and animals, and encouraging other copycat nuts to have more children than they can support or raise properly. I can't believe PETA would spend the money I scraped for to support this wacko, when I'm selling my belongings to help animals. NO MORE CASH FROM ME! Someone needs to be replaced at PETA. Unbelievably bad idea!
