M Htp!

I filled out the form with the necessary information and sent it off.  I also happen to be on the White House mailing list (not that it means anything really) as anyone can call and leave a message for the President.
It's a public number  1- (202)-456-1111

So far I have received no less than 3 replies (auto-replies to be sure) from the Senators in my state and one from The President concerning this matter.  Pretty quick.

Update:

Dear XXXXXX,

Thank you for your e-mail. Bulgari shares the same concern and is
particularly conscious of respecting wildlife. As an example of our
commitment, we have made considerable contributions in the past to the
WWF to help save endangered species.

The cubs in the ad campaign came from trustworthy sources - natural
animal parks based in the USA and managed by nature lovers. They were
treated with the utmost attention on the set, beyond the mere respect of
the law, and under the supervision of the local authorities in charge of
the control of exotic animals.

We appreciate your concern and you can be assured that these animals
were treated very well.

Most Sincerely,

BVLGARI Customer Service Team
1-800-BVLGARI

Thanks for checking this out.
Doesn't Bulgari's response make you want to slap them? I mean really, what universe do they live in ... why couldn't they use some pretty domestic cats? They're just perpetuating the problem, regardless of where the cubs came from.
