Ukrainian Instagram influencer Elena Iwanickaya had no issues getting her hairless cat, Yasha, tattooed with the image of the Egyptian god Anubis back in 2017. At that time, people were outraged on social media and even tried to get PETA involved, accusing her of animal cruelty.

The uproar eventually died down until she recently posted new pictures of Yasha with her tattoo on full display. One follower posted, “Why do you tattoo an animal?!” while another person posted, “Tf…?! Poor cat!” As the actual tattooing happened so long ago, and Yasha seems to be doing just fine, there’s no reason to believe that the allegations of animal abuse will amount to any further investigation.
