Cheetahs are still shot by African farmers and ranchers who see the cats as a threat to their livestock. In Big Cats, Cheetahs, Ned Halman explains that cheetahs need a wide open space to live in.

Fur is one of the many pieces of clothing that has been worn for centuries and in recent times has become a symbol of wealth except between the early eighties and late nineties when wearing fur resembled crime, and those who wore it risked being abused on the street. In 1994 supermodels like Naomi Campbell campaigned against the use of fur and as they had achieved celebrity grades, had others queuing up to join the anti-fur protests aswell.

More than 50 million animals will be killed for their fur this year, most of which will have spent their short lives in miserable conditions on fur farms before they are killed.

The Usugumo Legend is just one of many stories attempting to explain the origin of the now globally popular Maneki Neko sculpture. Also known as the ‘Beckoning Cat’—for the placement of one or both of its paws in a come hither position; or the ‘Lucky Cat’—for its mythical ability to bring luck and wealth—the Maneki Neko was born from ancient (and still omnipresent) Japanese superstitions, which suggested that cats were responsible for everything from predicting the weather to sensing domestic disharmony to stealing a dead person’s soul to, most importantly, bringing either good or bad luck. Fast-forward 300-plus years and the cat, in both its literal and product form, still exists as an emblem of hope for prosperity and fortune in the personal and business lives of the Japanese and, through cultural transference, other Asian nations as well.
