PETA has blasted Justin Bieber for buying designer kittens, arguing the singer should set an example by adopting a rescue cat.

The Canadian star bought two Savannah cats for a whopping $35,000. The cats are a hybrid between a domesticated feline and a medium-sized, large-eared wild African Serval cat.

PETA vented fury at Bieber’s actions and slammed the celebrity for his attitude.

In a statement to CNN, PETA said: “Justin Bieber could inspire his fans around the world to save a life by adopting a cat from a local animal shelter — rather than fueling the dangerous demand for hybrid cats, contributing to the animal overpopulation crisis, and proving that when it comes to helping animals, his stance so far is ‘I don’t care.’’

The singer posted a screenshot a PETA article criticizing his actions on Instagram, and wrote “PETA can suck it” across it.

 He then launched into a rant at PETA for attacking him.

 “PETA go focus on real problems. Like poaching and animal brutality.

 “Ur tripping because I want a specific kind of cat? U weren’t tripping when I got my dog Oscar and he wasn’t a rescue,” he posted.

“I believe in adopting rescues but also think there are preferences and that’s what breeders are for.

“PETA go help with all the plastic in the ocean, and leave my beautiful cats alone,” he added.

PETA’s president Ingrid Newkirk responded in another statement sent to CNN: “Sorry, Justin, but you must think more deeply about this issue: When millions of animals are losing their lives every year because not enough people adopt — choosing instead to shop — the animal overpopulation crisis is a ‘real problem’. That’s what ‘sucks.

“PETA urges you to spend just one hour in a municipal animal shelter with us — we think you’ll understand how hard it is to look into the animals’ eyes and know that because people pay breeders, many of them will pay with their lives. You have the power to be a great role model on this issue — your behavior guides that of tons of your fans — so please put that to good use.”
