It never ceases to amaze me how Science and Simplicity often work hand-in-hand.

This info was passed my way and caught my long-time-pet-owner sensibility.

"We promote humane science by supporting the creation, development, validation, and use of alternatives to animals in research, product safety testing, and education. We seek to effect change by working with scientists in industry, government, and academia to find new ways to replace animals with non-animal methods, reduce the numbers of animals necessary, or refine methods to make them less painful or stressful to the animals involved."

Part of the CAAT philosophy is based around the, perhaps not so simple formula, that humane science is better science. Credit belongs to two British scientists William Russell and Rex Burch for that discovery.

"CAAT promotes humane science because it is the best science."

Is that a little meow-meow/bark-bark applause I hear in the background?

Here's where they are:

We don't hear much from our "sister site," and then along comes news about their "school at work" program. Nothing beats good news in the morning.
