If the experiments on kittens were performed humanely and the goal was to improve the lives of kittens, I might be okay with the experiments if they did not kill the kittens when they were done. This may be a cat specific issue, but breeding kittens specifically to be used for experiments is wrong. Since the goal is probably to benefit human beings only, I think this is immoral. Animal research is generally iffy, just because a drug is safe for rabbits does not mean it is safe for people-or even for cats or dogs. We should use other means to find how toxins or drugs work-human tests must also be done. Some people take part in paid studies, and we could allow terminally ill patients to voluntarily test new drugs that could help them. Animal research is not good science-it only determines how the species experimented on reacts. Some drugs deemed safe per animal research have turned out to be harmful for humans. Animal research is antiquated, cruel and provides data which does not necessarily apply to how safe something is for us.
