I agree with the ninja coming from a farming family myself...plus the fact is there is no point to piercing a kitten, but there is a purpose with cows
It`s not a big deal because the cows are so much bigger than what they are being pierced with. The kittens were being pierced with large gauge rings. too big for their little bodies.
Who buys animals off of Ebay?
If the cat really really wanted them off, it would have taken them off, or tried damn hard and maybe tore it`s ears up pretty badly. It doesn`t say anything about serious injury that would have come if that had happened.
But you people are talking about (near unprovoked...) going out and murdering people in coldblooded ruthless manners. No they don`t lighten your sentence in court if they find out the one you killed liked cute kittens. I`m sorry but that might bump your sentence to life... or death depending on your countries perspective on that one.
People have died beneath law over far FAR more justified revenge. I would agree with being this upset if they took the cats head off and wore IT as an ear ring... but this is ridiculous...
The guy probably just wanted something special to advertise.
Their appearances have been modified. They`re not being boiled alive or thrown in microwaves. THAT`S cruel
Goth is a music scene, not a fashion statement.
You my dear are thinking or great danes... or doberman pinchers... german shepards are most certainly born with pointy ears.
Actually, they are... But I know the types of ears you`re talking about. Theirs a difference between "pointy ears" and clipped ears.
our shepherd has pointy ears and we havent touched him...
That`s cruelty in itself.
do i win?
the ear piercings, are vaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaguely tolerable
but the back piercings?
and cutting off the tail?
and also, cats` ears are not meant to droop down like that
so i reckon that lady should be put in prison
However animals get pierced all the time. There`s not a lot of pain to it. I used to have to put tags in the ears of cattle on farms, hurt me more than it hurt them.
AND YOU MORONS WAT A LADY TO DIE FOR GETTING A CAT PIERCED
I really don`t think `sadist` and `ignorant` have the same definition.I doubt they would go through the trouble of giving an animal piercings if they really wanted to hurt it.
It is unfortunate how ever that inadvertently, that is probably the result do to aforementioned ignorance.
I imagine if it was really hurting the cat in the short term it would have flipped out, I have seen a cat wearing a belt, it was almost identical to that cartoon ball of screeching black fur. No exaggeration. But long term could be the real issue.
On a completely separate point though. It `does` look pretty cute. <.<
1) They cut the ears and tails of dogs all the time, just because the breed is "supposed" to be that way.2) Some people might say that my first point would make it OK to do this to a cat as well. I don`t agree. Cats use their tails and ears differently than dogs do. I know they need their tails for balance when falling, and even walking, so that means no cutting off the tail. I`m pretty sure they use their ears much more than dogs do, so that would mean to me, no cutting off their ears.3) For the same reason as my second point, no piercing their ears.4) Cat`s don`t consent to being fixed or declawed, but we do that to them all the time. If the back piercing is done under a local anesthetic, I don`t see how it`s cruel. The cat will find it no more annoying than a collar.
So, to recap--ears and tails are no-no`s, but back piercings are OK if performed like an operation.
"JoetheRipper": yes. it hurts a lot more than neutering/spaying. They are put under anesthesia for neutering/spaying. They are also given sufficient pain killers just like if we (humans) were to have an invasive surgery like that.
Not only is this horribly wrong and disgusting, but think of the weight of those belly button rings on the kitten`s ears. thats horrible. I am a veterinary technician and applying for veterinary school next year and its people like this that make me sick. =(
dont some people actually do stuff like that to some of the dogs in dog shows and stuff?
