Morrissey Dons Cat Hat For PETA's New Ad Campaign

Perhaps following in the footsteps of Waka Flocka Flame, Morrissey is the latest face of a new PETA ad campaign. Here, though, the former Smiths vocalist one-ups Flocka, who merely held/played with various pups, by wearing--and we mean that in the most humane way you can imagine--a cat on his head. That's the advertisement with Morrissey--a vegan and general animal rights activist--above. Below you can read his thoughts on the campaign and partership with PETA.

Despite the fact that they're incredibly intelligent, animals unfortunately haven’t yet worked out how to slip on a rubber, which is why thousands of them are being put to sleep in overcrowded shelters and thousands more are desperately waiting to be adopted. Letting cats or dogs have litters is tantamount to shooting shelter animals in the head since it kills their chances of adoption. Please do the right thing and spay or neuter your animals.

As previously reported, Morrissey will be on tour starting Oct. 5 in Boston, Mass., finishing up about two months later in Atlantic City. See his road schedule below. [P4K]
