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.

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!!I originally had a rant about it when Heather posted a cute clip about fake tattoo's;
It really makes me the poor cat, anesthetized for vanity reasons not for a medical reason. How can that be healthy? Hours under anesthetic just because their owner thinks a tattoo would be cool.
Exactly. I don't have a tattoo myself but members of my family do and I know the care they had to take to stop them getting infected.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!!
