May it be a jacket or a purse,or maybe a blanket, do you like or use fur? Blankets of fur are warm and cosy.Have you seen one thing that when your lights are off and you rub over your fur blanket in dark, you can see a spark for a moment.Many avoid its use as they are animal products,how about you?

I don't use fur, but I do have a blanket that if I run my fingers over it in the dark I can see sparks. But I don't think it's fur lol. I'm kind of against it, but not to the point where I would hold rallies and stuff lol. I guess I would just prefer not to use fur.

I only use old fur that has been handed down to me from my grandparents. Because of the cruelty to animals I never buy real fur. Fake fur can be just as cosy. :D

I personally do not own a fur coat or a fur item. I do not mind using the fur off of an animal if the rest of the animal is being utilized and not over hunted. I do not want to waste the meat or kill an animal just for the tusks. I am against such killings. I think if we butcher cattle then use the whole animal just like anyother animal we get fur from. If I lived in an area that was really cold and I needed a fur coat I probubly would have one or more. I have had leather gloves with fur cuffs in the past. I do not know if the cuffs where real fur or not. I also do not want dog or cats killed to make a fur coat. Yuck

I don't use any fur item. Not that I have any dislike for them, but it happened so. When you rub a fur for some time some electric power is generated. I remember that I studied this in school. There was a practical experiment also. If you rub a comb upon a fur for some time and then place it an inch above some tiny pieces of paper, the comb will attract the paper particles. So rubbing of fur generates some power. We don't use blankets or quilts, because the winter here in Kerala is not that severe. An ordinary cotton sheet is all needed to resist the winter here. Still we keep some quilts in our house. When I travel to Delhi, Jaipur etc. during winter they provide some blankets in the hotels, but I don't use them. I will settle with some ordinary sheets. In your place even blankets won't suffice. You need thick 'rejaies'- right? Thank you eshaan.

I don't use or own any fur items. I personally feel that the fur or pelt will look better on the animal which it came from, than on me. I don't protested publicly about these things or anything like that or think bad of people who wear or have fur products. Its just something i'd never wear or want to own.
