According to a March 4 report by PoC.org., actress Lena Lenina says dyed pink cat is alive and well
How do we even know this is the same cat? The only way we could know this for sure would be a DNA test, which isn’t likely to happen because the dead cat would be long gone, and it would be fruitless to do a test on a cat Lena “says” is the same cat.
Another thing we have to look at is the size of the cat. The cat in the newly released photos is much larger. A kitten from last year may have grown some, but would it have grown that much?
It would be easy for Lena to have “faked” a new cat in the pink. The cat in the photo above could have been dyed, then most of the dye washed off. Take a good look at the above photo. Why is only the bottom half of the cat pink?
This article by Nutrimaxorgamic on hair dyes states the following
“Para-phenylenediamine*: Japan Poison Information Center notes that almost all hair colour contains para-phenylenediamine, lethal dose of this is 10g, it is easily absorbed from skin and lung. This chemical is harmful if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin. This is reason why the user should wear gloves and goggles to protect themselves. However, the scalp is also skin, therefore, the chemical still get absorbed into the interstitial fluid and bloodstream.”
So even if this poor kitten hadn’t licked off the dye, the dye could still have proved fatal when absorbed through the skin.
As for Lena, she says no contact was ever made by news media, and it turns out, the pink cat scandal had already blown over in Russia after Lena went on local TV to prove she didn’t kill her cat.
A petition online started by animal rights activist to press animal cruelty charges against Lena gathered more than 30,000 signatures. Now it appears there isn’t a dead cat for any charged to be filed against Lena.
News reporters can apologize for the story, but it’s doubtful any would find much sympathy for Lena, who thanks to the pink cat story, has reached worldwide fame.
We also can’t apologize for the stupidity of wanting to dye (whats supposed to be a beloved pet) pink to match an outfit to attend a social gathering.
