Meet Adele, a gorgeous little white rat who dreams of a home of her own. Yet every day in the shelter she’s passed over, met with looks of disgust from parents telling their children « it’s just a filthy rat. »

It’s that time of the year again!
Every year, there are so many tragic stories in the media about people leaving their dogs in their cars.
Yes, we are cat lovers, but we are animal lovers first and foremost. Cat Man has designed this poster to help educate the public to NEVER leave your dog (or cats if they are travelling with you) in the car, no matter how short a time and EVEN if you leave a gap at the window!

The poster has been set up in a fool proof way that there is no need to adjust any setting with your printer…

First of all I prepared three igloos, in addition to the one that was already out, so that they would have ready made beds. I placed them in sheltered parts of the garden.
I then gave them a final weigh-in and their final portraits as captives. Daisy-Boy.
As night fell, I undid the front panel and raised it to hedgehog height before re-securing it and moving the stones away from one corner.

Daisy-Boy was the first to notice and pushed most of his body out…
