FUZZY FEELING: PETA said Thursday it has donated furs to Liberty in London as part of that store’s annual coat collection for the homeless. “The animal charity has provided the store, which has a long-standing policy against selling fur, with an abundance of fur coats that were given to PETA by members of the public who had a change of heart about wearing fur,” the animal-rights organization said in a statement.

“PETA is able to send a vital message about having compassion for animals this winter — that only people desperately lacking basic necessities have any excuse to wear fur,” said PETA director Mimi Bekhechi, adding that the organization continues to take donations of real fur items for those in need. The PETA statement said that names including Mariah Carey, Kim Cattrall, and Debbie Harry have in the past donated their animal-skin coats to PETA or its affiliates.
