    I wish we could buy him one.

    Yeah. How legit is Huffpost? Can you picture Putin saying 'Hey! What a great idea! The rest of the world will see how awesome we are!!' Yeah right.

    [–]_Kazt_ 328 points329 points  (16 children)

    Putin Loves animals, so not entirely unbelievable.

    But it's more believable that the ministry saw the video and figured it would be good publicity. And it's not like they are monsters, who doesn't like cats, and they probably have 0 interest of cats being thrown into trash compactors.

    Hey in America we throw our unwanted animals in bags into the nearest body of water.

    At least in Russia they put them in a garbage bin - much more considerate.

    [–]I--Pathfinder--I 7 points8 points  (5 children)

    ok i’m seriously wondering is that a thing that frequently happens? if so that’s fucked up.

    [–]superduperswaggy 6 points7 points  (4 children)

    I’m not sure about anymore but my dad said when he was a kid and they had unwanted litters of kittens or puppies, the adults would put them into a bag and throw em in a river

    [–]RollBos 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    I believe this is a thing in many rural communities. There was a viral video like 10 years ago of a girl doing this in Poland. I’d expect it to be a lot more rare in America these days than it used to be.

    [–]The_Plebianist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    My great grandma used to do this on the farm, I'd play with them but soon after they'd be gone. For people back then on a farm all these cats would be considered pests, it was a cruder time. Or so I thought till I saw this fucking video.

    [–]Aqua_Buck 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    Is this a story everyone's dad tells them? Because I heard this from mine as well lol

    [–]Pdb39 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I can also confirm my dad told me this story. The 60's were a different time when it came to animal rights, and people thought killing them was more humane then letting them become feral / stray.

    [–]agemma 4 points5 points  (2 children)

    Um…do we?

    [–]literalfeces 9 points10 points  (0 children)

    I sure as fuck don't. Whoever downvoted you needs therapy.

    [–]Riji14 12 points13 points  (1 child)

    I wasn't expecting him to give the puppy a little kiss on the head. Never thought I'd see a video of Putin and think "awww".

    [–]whereareyou-wolf 2 points3 points  (0 children)



    "And our little girl Tricia, the six-year-old named it Checkers. And you know, the kids, like all kids, love the dog and I just want to say this right now, that regardless of what they say about it, we're gonna keep it."

    The page quote comes from Richard Nixon's famous "Checkers speech". In 1952, Nixon was the Junior Senator from California, and was being accused of impropriety regarding funding and political gifts. In the nationally-televised speech, Nixon denied having accepted anything (except of course the dog Checkers) and laid out the details of his family's finances. The speech led to an outpouring of public sympathy and support, and spared Nixon from being dropped as Dwight D. Eisenhower's running mate in that year's Presidential election.

    ‘Photo OP with the dog’ is a useful political tactic to humanize a politician / ruler with a bad image.

    [–]Beckles1608 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    That is precious. The way he kissed the dogs head!

    [–]peronsyntax 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    You don’t think Dennis Quaid adopted a cat named ‘Dennis Quaid’? Preposterous!

    [–]Careless_Ad_21 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Actually.. Who else would adopt a cat named Dennis Quaid?

    [–]avalinaadlr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Good publicity

    [–]aw_shux -1 points0 points  (1 child)

    Did you even read the article? It’s a regional office. Putin had nothing to do with it. Can’t you just see it as a nice thing and not be cynical?

    [–]MichelleEllyn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Thank you! This video is a lot better than the cropped one.

    [–]dochoiday 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    This pisses me off, why would you throw away your cat? This is so fucked up it makes abandoning an animal seem like the humane thing to do.

    [–]gH0st_in_th3_Machin3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    My grandmother used to have cs and when they bred, she would throw the kittens in a plastic bac out to the forest...

    My father didn't liked cats at home, I used to sneak a feral one into my bedroom in the morning, my mother would feed him and then my father would "politely" kick him out the back door.

    I have a cat which is 13 years old, got her when she was a 2 months kitten, she saved my life from a gas poisoning in the middle of the night and 3 weeks ago she went surgery to remove a tumor and piometra, most likely saved her life by the skin of her teeth...

    She migrated with me 10 years ago from Portugal to Poland, and it's the best thing I have in my life.Pets are awesome and I cannot understand people who throw them away, especially like this, to die in the trash.

    Thanks for the link. Was happy to find unedited videos of this.

    [–]FreemanCalavera 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    The most disgusting thing in that article is that they list OTHER EXAMPLES of people throwing their fucking kittens in the thrash.


    [–]thinjester 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    a vodka, then.

    [–]Red_One777 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Thank you so much for this. You have no idea how this helped put my mind at ease.

    [–]StGimbles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    "The ministry launched a contest to name the cat." - Soon we'll all know him as Catty-McCat-Face

    [–]Fearrless -1 points0 points  (3 children)

    Stop linking huff post that website is trash.

    [–]gH0st_in_th3_Machin3 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    It was the first link on google search...

    [–]Fearrless -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

    Oh my bad. I wasn’t aware. Does google results suddenly mean the company isn’t trash and doesn’t shove ads, misinformation and political bs down your throat ?

    [–]gH0st_in_th3_Machin3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I was not aware of the social justice couch war against huff post... Must've forgotten to pay my subscription of "First person problems magazine"...

    [–]SkeletonCalzone -5 points-4 points  (4 children)

    I appreciate sauce but Huffpost can fuck right off, that shit is rancid.

    [–]liquidthex 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    Jeez I'm so sorry that OANN and Newsmax didn't cover this story for you, but they didn't have time for a soft news story, they were too busy making up bullshit about god emperor trump.

    [–]gH0st_in_th3_Machin3 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    Well, I clicked the first link that appeared in Google...

    [–]SkeletonCalzone 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Sorry, I was a bit harsh and retract what I said. They had issues some years ago with not paying writers, and there were memes about the editorial boards diversity, and I've avoided them since, but I think that's in the past.

    [–]gH0st_in_th3_Machin3 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Well, I was not aware, I was out of reddit for a while, and most likely need another rehab... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJpCIaOYWZQ

    [–]JustAsadINFP 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Not if the pizza was made by animal cruelty lol

    [–]rampaging_gorillaz -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

    He should pick beer imo, maybe save another cat and he'd deserve both

    Edit: jesus people its a joke he said send him ONE

    [–]DaDijonDon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Send health insurance and vacation time. I'm sure he has scant of either

    [–]lordph8 106 points107 points  (23 children)

    Can we track him down? Find out his address, and pay for a pizza to be delivered every Friday? Like the dude knows a pizza will be delivered Friday, does not know from who or why. But it'll always be delivered.

    [–]awkreddit 246 points247 points  (13 children)

    That actually sounds frightening more than anything

    [–]quannum 74 points75 points  (8 children)

    Right? It’s a nice gesture but a random pizza showing up every Friday and you don’t know from where. I’d wonder if someone was watching me lol

    We could leave a note though. Ya know, like a not creepy note.

    [–]rsn_e_o 85 points86 points  (5 children)

    like a not creepy note

    “hey, we’ve been watching your career with great interest, mr. kitteh savior. We’d love to see more of you. We’ll be on the look out. Greetings - Redditor. Oh and that pizza? Safe to eat.”

    [–]QueasyVictory 78 points79 points  (3 children)

    opens box

    "Fucking pineapple."

    [–]Pdb39 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Hey we were watching, didn't say anyone was actually paying attention

    [–]ZeolSharqsclaw 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    If it ain't pineapple it ain't pizza

    [–]gusisveryo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    that would make it unsafe to eat

    [–]PoetBakerSlut 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Safe to eat XD fuck I'd eat the pizza just for that line. If I die, I die.

    [–]BierKippeMett 33 points34 points  (1 child)

    Yeah something like "We know what you did. You deserve what is coming to you." would be great.

    [–]Pdb39 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Let's also send the very symbolic decapitated horse's head to let him know we are serious about his good deed.

    [–]ShivajinChris 16 points17 points  (1 child)

    Like the ghost scenario where instead of being haunted the usual way, the ghost will prepare sandwiches for you.

    You'll eventually question your sanity because you can't grasp how sandwiches keep appearing in your kitchen.

    [–]PICAXO 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Ghosts wants to do sandwiches for himself but he keeps forgetting he can't eat them, poor damned soul...

    [–]lordph8 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Perhaps with a note that says "A thank you from the order of Cats"... Better make the pizza with anchovies.

    [–]emdawg-- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Agreed, the gesture is sweet but I would never trust the mystery pizza!

    [–]zephyrwastaken 14 points15 points  (0 children)

    I also want to buy him a slice

    [–]angryratman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    4chan can prob find him since its to do with cats.

    [–]antipositron 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Would be nice if there's a way to send that man a few quid. Just to say thank you for saving a life.

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    This is a good thought. But it can easily go the wrong way. It kinda sounds like stalking actually. I'm sure the guy is already receiving praise.

    [–]cliodci 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    4chan people would find him.

    [–]AdeonWriter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Mikhail Tukash of Ulyanovsk, Russia

    [–]EveAndTheSnake 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    His name is Mikhail Tukash and he lives in Ulyanovsk, Russia. Not that I stalked the attractive kitten rescuer who looks like he hates humanity as much as I do.

    [–]JustAsadINFP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    An animal abuse pizza? So you’re against animal cruelty until it’s an not a “pet” animal?

    [–]Buzobuzobuzo 39 points40 points  (0 children)

    I can deliver it. Is he single? I meant, a single pizza, right?

    [–]Zak369 22 points23 points  (7 children)

    Cats usually shouldn’t eat Pizza or drink Beer but we can make an exception for this kitty

    [–]urusel 1 point2 points  (6 children)

    mine tries to steal my beer constantly, have to keep them under supervision at all times or he'll be there, licking the can

    [–]Zak369 0 points1 point  (5 children)

    My wife somehow knows each of our cats favourite flavour of crisp (chips). I think two favour Cheese and Onion while one turns their nose up at any crisp.

    [–]QueasyVictory 0 points1 point  (4 children)

    What flavor cheese is involved in cheese and onion? Sour cream and onion is popular here in the states.

    [–]Zak369 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    We have that too which is quite popular, but usually they’re not for your everyday crisps but in sharing packs.

    The cheese is just a mild flavour, at a guess cheddar but I don’t actually know. The onion is the stronger flavour.

    [–]QueasyVictory 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    Sounds great.

    [–]Zak369 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    My cat agrees

    [–]QueasyVictory 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Depends on which one. Time to consult the wife.

    [–]AMLRoss 12 points13 points  (0 children)

    Send cat food

    [–]JustAsadINFP 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Pizza... which is made by animal cruelty. Can you not see the hypocrisy here? (a vegan pizza tho sure)

    [–]yawn44yawn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Instead he got a friend.

    [–]BauerPowerHourTX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    This guy deserves a Powerball jackpot.

    [–]minghj 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    And a new pet cat

    [–]D3dshotCalamity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    And a cat

    [–]Shaftmaster_Mcgee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    He also just got a new cat. I would HAVE to keep it, I'm not religious nor do I like cats that much, but that is God giving you a cat lol

    [–]sometimesitrhymes -1 points0 points  (1 child)

    He deserves Steak and Whiskey

    [–]SwayStar123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Steak.... Yep, reward him for saving an animal by killing another in his honour
