Leave the fur on the animal

Clothing store buyer Barbie Lattman says that because "putting fur on the wrong person can make them look bigger ... the proportions have to be just right. You've got to watch who you put it on" ("Second skins," Dec. 6).

What an amazingly thoughtless comment. I suggest she leave the fur on the animal the clothing manufacturer ripped it off of. It looked just fine there and the proportions were just right.
