Justice for Cat Allegedly Forced to Smoke in Viral Video

Target: Janice Girardi, Director of Bali Animal Welfare Association (BAWA)

Goal: Ensure strict legal action against those allegedly responsible for forcing a cat to smoke, as seen in a viral video.

On social media, a disturbing video emerged, sparking public outrage. It reportedly shows an 18-year-old from Indonesia forcing a cat to smoke, an act of alleged animal cruelty. The cat, in seemingly visible distress, attempts to escape this cruel situation. This troubling incident has raised significant concerns about animal welfare and the need for strict action against such alleged abuses.

Further details reveal the girl apparently pushing a lit cigarette into the cat’s mouth. Failing, she then reportedly blows smoke into its face. The cat’s evident discomfort and desperate attempt to flee paint a harrowing picture of alleged animal mistreatment. Despite an apology video from the girl, claiming her actions were a joke, it highlights a serious issue: alleged animal abuse, often dismissed or overlooked, can cause long-term harm to animals’ physical and mental health.

This incident necessitates change. Harsher penalties for animal cruelty are essential to deter such alleged acts. The legal system must not overlook such cases, ensuring justice for the cat and setting a precedent against future animal abuse. Demand that the director of the BAWA take immediate action.


Dear Director Janice Girardi,

I am writing to highlight an alarming incident involving alleged animal cruelty that has come to light through a viral video. In it, an 18-year-old is seen allegedly forcing a cat to smoke a cigarette. This act, which has caused widespread public dismay, reflects a disturbing disregard for animal wellbeing and should be addressed with the utmost seriousness.

The video in question reportedly shows the girl attempting to force a cigarette into the cat’s mouth and, failing that, blowing smoke in its face. The cat’s visible distress and escape attempt illustrate the immediate need for intervention. The perpetrator’s apology, referring to the act as a joke, does not mitigate the gravity of the alleged abuse. It’s critical to acknowledge that such behavior, if left unchecked, contributes to a culture of cruelty and can have severe consequences on animals’ health.

Therefore, I urge you to take swift and decisive legal action against the individual responsible for this alleged abuse. It is imperative that our legal system demonstrates a zero-tolerance policy towards animal cruelty. By doing so, we not only seek justice for the cat in this specific incident but also establish a strong deterrent against similar acts in the future.

    She needs to find an outlet for her boredom to say the least.
    Regardless she has apologized for her stupidity, she deserves a harsh penalty for her “joking” behaviour. Was the cat seized from her home and taken to a reputable shelter or home?
