Actually, the guy writes extremely well, and seems to be into computers. I suspect he is a square bonsai head himself
Someone could send that to PETA....should keep him busy for a while

Real. I have also seen cats grown into mishaped bottles filled with fluid as if it was a fetus in utero. Disturbing as it may be, the practice and market of these bottled lives is very real.

Ohh it is very real many animal rights groups have been trying for the last couple yrs to end this fad. Its been big in asia for about 5 yrs. Its disgusting, inhuman and basically a slow murder for the cat. Its kinda like when the asian women wrapped their feet to make them smaller but the only difference is the cats died the woman was in pain.

Don't fall victim to the Urban Legend, the site is a hoax, the practice is a hoax... It is satire at its finest, enjoy it, it's funny!
Sleep soundly in knowing that nobody is making Bonsai animals.

Just a little observation here...

There are people that believe bonsai kittens are real that would call someone an idiot for believing a reptile only grows as big as it's tank.

Dwell on that


(and no, i'm not pointing fingers at anyone. it's just funny)

Reptiles do only grow as big as their tank don't they? Didn't you see Marshall's Retic eggs in a little Rubbermaid ?
Those are obviously Bonsai Retics, the monster!
LOL
Nice work Chris, by the way! You should ship every neonate in a spice jar!

The kittens are also depicted on www.rotten.com, including letters written by PETA adressed to the author of the site (who exclaims it's fake )

Fetusses (did spell that right? ) in bottles aren't quite that hard to make, I work as a veterinary technician and we keep our own collection of stillborns and stuf, you'd be surprised how they fit in very small bottles

Cheers,
Peter
