Pathetic Man Sparks Outrage over Tattooed Cat
Simple people are amused by simple things…this is the case of tattoo artist Timur Rimut, from Tatarsan, Russia, who has caused a bit of outrage with animal rights activists around the world for defiling his cat with a tattoo.
Rimut, 24, inked a necklace design on the feline with the words Carpe Diem, Latin for ‘seize the day’… things get even stranger when you see the identical tattoo on his own chest and a tattoo portrait of the hairless sphinx on his arm.
Apparently pet tattooing has become a trend in Russia’s Republic of Tatarstan, so is it really that awful… The inking was done in the presence of a veterinarian and an anaesthesiologist. The unfortunate feline went under anaesthetic for the painful treatment – and video footage shows him passed out on a table while Rimut gets to work with the needle.
It’s not the first time a sphynx cat has been tattooed in Russia. Moscow woman Oksana Popova had her cat sedated for three hours so a tattoo of the Egyptian pharoah Tutankhamun could be inked of its chest.
The pigs had individual carers who moisturised their skin to ensure the tattoos stay in good condition.
