Annals of Russian Barbarism: Yup, you guessed it, now they’re Tattooing cats


The Pet News Examiner reports:

A disturbing new trend has surfaced in Russia: cat owners getting their felines tattooed with elaborate, colorful designs. A young Russian woman, Oksana Popova, had her rare Canadian Hairless cat Mickey put under general anesthesia for three hours while an image of King Tut was etched onto the cat’s chest. The tattoo artist Anatoly Keksel performed the work at his TattoonHamon Tattoo Parlor in Russia. “I wanted something new and different for the times we live in,” Popova explains. “I have the same tattoo,” boasts Keksel, lifting up his shirt. The practice has infuriated animal rights activists in Russia, such as  Irina Novozhilova. “The ethical thinking about animals in Russia lacks behind that of the West,” says Nozozhilova. “People in Russia mostly buy animals for selfish reasons and anything that happens to them afterwards is a consequence of that.”

Dogs fare little better in Putin’s Russia.

  2. The Russians don’t even have ethical thinking about people, how can we expect them to care about animals.
    Take the case of the high ranking officials killed recently in a helicopter crash while hunting the protected (and highly endangered) mountain goats in a region of Siberia.

  3. As Gandhi would say:

    ‘The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.’

    Animal snuff films, known as crush films can be found on the internet. These films depict instances of animal cruelty, and/or pornographic acts with animals, usually involving the crushing death of an animal, including insects, mice, rats, guinea pigs, hamsters, monkeys, birds, cats, and dogs. In 1999, the US government banned the depiction of animal cruelty, however the law was overturned by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals which ruled that these films were protected as free speech.
