We are the generation that are still waiting for our Hogwarts letters. We wish we had a relationship like Cory and Topanga. We've all tried to imitate Carlton's dance to Tom Jones. We all wish we had an Uncle Jesse. Sometimes we wish our linen closet was a portal to the other realm. We can still here Steve Urkel's laugh. We had tamagotchis and furbys and pogs and Pokemon cards.
I guess I haven’t been to the Sims 3 store in some time, because this is the first I’m seeing this: The Sims 3 Iams Pet Starter Kit. The page is accompanied by the text:
Start your pet on the right track today! Do you love your pets? Yes? Well we do too! So do our friends at Iams!
No. Iam does not love pets. Iams has persistently been experimenting on animals for decades, and their actions have been among the most cruel. The last time they got caught they made a bit of progress in how they treat their subjects, but they are still far from humane, and refuse to allow their facilities to be evaluated. It’s disheartening to see EA partner with Iams, when such partnerships continue to perpetuate the myth that Iams can be trusted to provide the best for our animals. While they claim their studies are only in the interest of nutrition, I don’t know that I’d trust my pet’s health in the hands of a company who can’t be bothered to treat their 700 test subjects with any decency.
