I'm all for using the cute stick-on, wash-off tattoos for our sphynx kitties, but this is terrible. Seems like it's a trend in Russia nowadays to put real tattoos on cats. I consider real tats on cats cruel and abusive.
I haven't even gone to the link yet and I'm actually tearing up at the thought of this. I wouldn't intentionally cause pain to my boys for anything that wasn't medically necessary - EVER!!! Poor babies!
I have seen this on google pics a while ago. It made me so angry.
There is a big difference between tattooing some numbers in the ear of the cat in case it should run away and a real tatoo.
Many cats in DK gets a little tatoo with numbers done, while they are getting spayed by the vet.
We have a couple of registers too.
People that tattoo their sphynx should be prosecuted for cruelty to animals. And shouldn't be allowed to have animals of any kind.
Exactly! I know how terrified I am every time one of my animals is sedated, for neuter or when Nelson was recently put out for his eye surgery, I was a wreck all day...I can't even fathom doing it unless absolutely medically necessary!!
Not only that, many of us have tattoos here, we know it takes weeks for them to heal completely, it's painful, then it itches, and there is always a risk of infection if the tattoo isn't kept clean...
Oh! It infuriates me!! Can you even imagine what a cat tongue across a fresh tattoo would feel like!!
The a__holes who do this obviously have never been under an anesthetic before because if they did they would not want to subject their cats to it for something so vain as a tattoo. 3 hours is A LONG TIME to be put under. i've had many surgeries and i've always said that the worst part of surgery is coming out of the anesthetic. I had a neurological procedure done at the hospital just this past December and i felt SO NASTY coming out of surgery. i barfed for hours.
OMG! I am horrified at the thought of someone doing this to their cat for no good reason. When I saw the picture I could not help but cry. These people should not be allowed sphynx or any other kind of animal. I am truly appalled.
I just can't believe that people would do something like this. These people are wrong in the head and need locking up. They honestly can't care about animals at all. It's awful to think about what else goes on. People can be so cruel.
