A Russian tattoo artist may have taken his vocation a little too far – he gave his pet cat, named Demon, four large tattoos. Demon is a hairless cat, so the ink will always show.
Apparently the illustrated kitty was anesthetized during the tattoo procedure, but nonetheless The Doctors agree that this is totally inappropriate. “It’s mutilation!” exclaims Urologist Dr. Jennifer Berman. “And there’s no potential benefit” to the pet, adds Ob/Gyn Dr. Nita Landry.
Plastic Surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon points out that anesthetizing a pet always carries risks, and it shouldn’t be done unnecessarily – much less four times. And, he adds, “This cat doesn’t want a tat!”
ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork points out that it’s an extension of the same anthropocentrism that makes people put clothes on their dogs. ”This guy probably likes his cat,” Dr. Stork observes, “So what’s going on in the brain that would make him do this?”
The Doctors have no final answers, but they do wish Demon the cat all the best.
