Overpampered pet Celebrity Cat Dies After Being Dyed Pink

The vet that examined the cat when it was taken ill and where it later died already reported that the cat had died from being poisoned by a toxic substance.

A Russian author is under fire from animal rights activists for causing the death of her cat after dying her with a toxic hair dye just for publicity.

The author, Lena Lenina made the cat the main attraction at a ‘pretty in pink party’ where all the guests, the cat included, had to wear pink metro FM reports.

Eyewitnesses told Russian media that the animal, which at that stage in September was a young kitten, had been hysterical the whole evening and was constantly trying to get out of her hands.

She was widely criticised for the stunt but rejected the criticism, saying that she had been told by her vet that it was actually beneficial.

She said: ‘The pink colour was especially chosen for its healing properties and also strengthens the cat’s hair. My vet told me it was a beneficial addition to him.’

But as soon as the media fuss died down she quickly lost interest in the kitten, which remained pink and continued to lick at its pink fur, apparently causing it to ingest some colour from which animal-rights activists say it later died.

The vet that examined the cat when it was taken ill and where it later died already reported that the cat had died from being poisoned by a toxic substance.

Among those that criticised her was artist Yuri Kuklachev who described the stunt as pointless and unnecessarily cruel.

And there is now an online petition demanding the local governor police to investigate the right animal cruelty charges. The petition gathered several thousand signatures but at the moment there has not been an official response from the local government.
