Expert opinion: illogical, some businessmen make a splash
An expert on fur from the China Leather Association told the Beijing Youth Daily that the statement of cats fur waistcoat was not logically credible. On the one hand, this view is not economical. There is no standard breeding of cats and dogs as fur raw materials. Making fur requires enough fur. Compared with cats fur, rabbits fur is cheaper and easier to obtain in fur farms. Rabbits fur and foxs fur are dyed and processed to produce higher-grade fur. On the other hand, most people do not use cats fur to make fur. It is said that real cats fur businessmen have the act of sensationalism. At present, there is no relevant legal provisions in China, but it is not advocated in the industry, or even condemned the use of pet fur as fur.
