A 24-year-old Russian tattoo artist has given his pet cat a tattoo identical to the one inked on his chest.
The naturally hairless sphynx cat was put under anaesthetic to receive the tattoo, which reads "Carpe Diem", Latin for "Seize the day".
The tattoo is the same as one inked across the chest of owner Timur Rimut from Tatarstan, west of Moscow.
Mr Rimut also has a tattoo of his cat on his forearm.
The inking was done in the presence of a veterinarian and an anaesthesiologist but has still drawn the ire of animal rights activists in Russia.
It's not the first time a sphynx cat has been tattooed in Russia.
Moscow woman Oksana Popova had her cat sedated for three hours so a tattoo of the Egyptian pharoah Tutankhamun could be inked of its chest.
In 2005 Belgian artist Wim Delvoye launched a farm in China where tattooed pigs were displayed.
The pigs had individual carers who moisturised their skin to ensure the tattoos stay in good condition.
