Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
Steve-O: I\'d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur
Catching Steve-O with his pants down probably wouldn't come as a shock to most of his fans, but it's what he's dropping them for this time that might pleasantly surprise some of them! The **** star shed not only his pants but every stitch of clothing he was wearing to star in not one but two naked anti-fur PSAs for PETA.
With the taglines "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" and "Ink, Not Mink," Steve-O shows off his tattoos and takes a stand against animal abuse. He encourages fans to "[b]e comfortable in your own skin and let animals keep theirs."
Steve-O is famous for all the dangerous and painful stunts he puts himself through, but he knows that animals killed for their fur don't have a choice. Foxes, raccoons, and even dogs and cats are strangled, beaten, and electrocutedâ€”and many of them are skinned aliveâ€”for the fur industry.
Steve-O put it perfectly in his interview with PETA: "Abuse yourself all you want," he says, "just leave animals out of it. Don't wear fur."
To see what else Steve-O had to say in his interview with PETA and to watch behind-the-scenes footage of his "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" photo shoot, visit PETA's blog The PETA Files.
