This is the method used by http://bonsaikitten.com/ to make kittens of different shapes:

"The flexibility of the kitten's skeleton means that if the bones are gently warped at this early ag, they can be molded into any desired shape. At Bonsai Kitten, we achieve this by placing the kitten into a rigid vessel soon after birth, and allowing the young cat to grow out its formative time entirely within this container. The kitten essentially grows into the shape of the vessel! Once the cat is fully developed, it is removed (or the vessel broken to remove it!), producing the lovable, furry pet you've always wanted, but it remains in the shape you've always dreamed of! There is virtually no limit to the eventual shape of your pet."

This practice is cruel and mean. We, the undersigned, want this practice stopped. How would you like it if as a baby your parents put you in a small glass jar so that you would be shaped differently?
