Would You Dye Your Pussy Pink?

First of all, apparently the standards for making news in Britain are incredibly low. This woman died her cat pink. And The Sun wrote an article about it! There is controversy! Though, this would have made headlines in the neighborhood newsletter I tried to distribute when I was 9, too, so who am I to judge? Don’t worry, she used food dye, so the animal wasn’t harmed.

“I read the instructions on the food colouring and there was nothing that would harm humans or animals. We eat the food the dye is used on, so I knew it wasn’t toxic.” Natasha, of Swindon, Wiltshire, said Oi! Kitty used to belong to her sister Lisa – who ALSO dyed her once before.

She took over the cat from Lisa recently and then turned her pink. The cat didn’t seem to be worried and she looked lovely. I would never hurt an animal. It’s just food colourant. I would never put proper dye on an animal.”

I really like that accusatory, bold, all caps, ALSO.

So, this woman did something harmless to her cat, basically. I suppose the worst thing you can say about it is that it smacks a little bit of “things I would have liked to do to all the animals in my house when I was five.” But hey, in Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter Jayne Mansfield dyed her poodle polka-dot. This doesn’t seem that newsworthy. I’m mostly mentioning because I wanted a cute cat picture to look at. Never mind. Let’s fight about the implications. Ready? You start. You can’t start? Okay. I will. This means that people might think it’s okay to sneak into your house and dye your skin in your sleep.
