Punish Woman Who Tattooed Cat for Cruel Instagram Stunt

Target: Kevin Systrom, CEO of Instagram

Goal: Ban Instagram user who reportedly forcibly tattooed cat for photos.

Fitness expert Elena Ivanickaya apparently had her hairless cat tattooed for the sake of Instagram likes. Yasha, the cat in question, was reportedly sedated and laid on a gurney while the artist inked the Egyptian god Anubis on the animal’s hairless body, all because Ivanickaya thought it would ‘look cool.’ The photos posted garnered massive outcry from the Instagram community, users leaving nothing but disgusted and angry comments over the abuse of this cat.

This appears to be just another example of social media being used to perpetuate animal abuse. Yasha survived, but is now left with ink permanently embedded into her delicate skin. Furthermore, hairless cats in general are more vulnerable to the elements and possibly infection if their skin is not properly cared for. A tattoo is the last thing such a cat needs.

Ivanickaya’s apparent ploy to gain views and likes was selfish and exploitative, and she must be punished. Sign this petition to demand Instagram ban her and delete her account.


Dear Mr. Systrom,

User Elena Ivanickaya reportedly had her hairless cat tattooed for the sake of views and likes, apparently having the animal sedated while a tattoo artist inked an Egyptian god into its delicate skin. The cat is currently alive, but hairless cats are vulnerable to infection, and this particular cat runs the risk of ink poisoning.

Social media is being used to perpetuate animal cruelty far too much these days, and this poor cat is yet another unnecessary example. Ivanickaya must be punished for her reported actions; you must delete her account and ban her from your site. Cats are not meant to be tools for the sake of online popularity and notoriety.

  1. First of all, get this cat away from this dumb lady. Then get the lady off of Instagram – never to return. Lastly, get this gal psychological help – anyone who needs “Likes” that much has a real problem.
