People are pretty awful, but pets are so great, right? They have fur to keep them warm and make them extra cuddly. They have those sweet little faces and charming personalities to make us fall in love with them and keep feeding them. And they, for reasons which have never been less clear, love us unconditionally, no matter how stupid and undeserving we are. Yet the people who are pioneering the new trend of giving their pets temporary tattoos and dyeing and cutting their hair in all kinds of "fun" ways better hope that unconditional rule holds because they are really pushing the limit.
To be clear, the pet tattoos we're talking about here are temporary. (Though there are permanent pet tattoos, and there is no doubt a special circle in hell reserved for the people who take it to that level.) They usually cost between $10 and $20, and they're airbrushed on with stencils and special non-toxic animal dye. Sorry to be a super nerd, but aren't there better ways for chemists to spend their time than devising dye that can be used to decorate animals? Like maybe they could work on curing malaria or killing bedbugs or something—just a super un-fun thought.
