Just another hoax...

I got this in my inbox... and as a critical and maybe cynical person I checked out the site that's referred in the email... it looks like a hoax and it is a hoax... I was CC'd on the following email... along with about 50+ others...

To anyone with love and  respect for life:

In New York there is a Japanese who  sells
"bonsai-kittens". Sounds like
fun huh? NOT! These animals  are squeezed into a
bottle. Their urine and faeces are removed  through
probes. They feed them with a kind of tube.
They feed them chemicals to keep their bones soft
and flexible so the kittens  grow into the shape of
the bottle. The animals will stay their as  long as
they live. They can't walk or move or wash themselves.
Bonsai-kittens are becoming a fashion in New  York and
Asia.

** See this horror at: http://www.bonsaikitten.com

Please  sign this email in protest against these
tortures. If  you receive an email with over 500
names, please send a copy to:
********@hotmail.com

From there this protest will  be sent to USA and
Mexican animal protection organizations.  If you send
this to your friends:
Use the copy & paste method  in an NEW email to keep
this readable....

267 people had signed their names on the email I got...

... *sigh* ... when are people going to learn to analyze and critically examine things, instead of just swollow things that comes served on silver platters?
