Target: Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of Russia
Goal: Make tattooing animals illegal in Russia.
Vanity tattoos for cats have become a recent trend in Russia. Tattoo artists have been sedating animals for hours at a time to give them tattoos for purely aesthetic reasons—just because they like the way they look.
Sedating an animal to tattoo it is clearly dangerous in itself, but animal vanity tattoos can lead to larger complications as well. The animals’ skin can become infected, and they often experience pain and soreness from the tattoo needles upon waking. While small tattoos are sometimes given on ears for identification, those procedures are always done by a trained veterinary professional.
Vanity tattoos for cats are unethical and irresponsible. Animals cannot give their consent and there are far too many risks involved. Stylistically tattooing a cat qualifies as animal abuse and should be outlawed in Russia.
Dear Prime Minister Vladimir Putin,
Vanity tattoos for cats are a dangerous new trend in Russia. It puts these animals through unnecessary pain and leaves them prone to infections and complications from sedation. They serve no medical or protective purpose; they are simply a fashion trend at the expense of an animal’s well being.
Tattoos for cats are unethical and dangerous. Please protect these animals from abuse and make vanity tattoos illegal in Russia.
