This Russian Tattooed His Cat And The Internet Is Rightfully Mad About It

The internet is currently throwing a fit over a Russian cat being tattooed by his owner. The ethics behind the story seem shaky at best.

This story started when cat owner and tattoo artist Alexandr Purtova got the idea to tattoo his pet. The cat is a sphinx-like species that stays naked all year long. The skin is perfect for showing off new ink, so Alexandr designed the tattoo and got to work.

Apparently, he didn't think about the ethics of forcing a tattoo on a voiceless pet until he posted his work to the internet and people spoke up with negative feedback.

"Of course I feel pity for doing it to him. It’s not like he wanted to do it himself. He has a different skin, so tattoos are applied differently," Aleksandr says.

"I hope it is not too bad for him, it is not his first tattoo. Usually, he feels fine and recovers from the anesthesia pretty fast."

How does Alexandr feel about that tattoo now that his internet audience has raised concerns? "This is a very old practice and has many aspects, so my attitude is neutral," he says.

"Here there is a question about the ethics of it now. It was normal in ancient times to stigmatize or tattooing animals in a sign of belonging to a particular host."
