Tigers need mothers

Dear Editor,

Yesterday we went to the American Furniture Warehouse to buy chairs. We saw tigers, lions and leopards. They were all in cages and some of them were babies.

I did not like to see them in cages. Where are their mothers? Why aren’t they with their mothers? Why did you take them away from their mothers? Don’t you need a mother? So do baby lions, tigers and leopards.

Would Mr. Jabs like to be locked up in a cage and go from furniture store to furniture store? They’re wild animals and belong in the wild or at least a wild preserve. He’s only doing it so people will buy his furniture. Animals don’t belong in furniture stores!
