BUAV has discovered that shocking experiments on kittens have taken place at Cardiff University.
   
Some kittens were raised in complete darkness while others were deprived of the sight in one eye by having their eyelids sewn shut. The kittens were then anaesthetised, artificially ventilated and paralysed with a drug to prevent eye movements. They were then subjected to highly invasive head surgery during which the skin was cut away, the skull was opened and the brain was exposed for recordings.
   
After various tests, all the kittens were killed and parts of their brain removed for analysis.
   
Sophisticated methods of studying vision and the neurologic processes underlying it in human beings already exist. Not only is this experiment inhumane, it is unnecessary for human health.
   
Ricky Gervais has joined the BUAV in calling for an end to these experiments: I am appalled that kittens are being deprived of sight in one eye by having their eyelids sewn shut. I thought sickening experiments like these were a thing of the past. I support the BUAV in calling for this research to be stopped.
   
Please join us in calling for Cardiff University to end these sickening eexperiments on kittens and cats.
