The Internet Is Rinsing This Corrupt Chechen Leader Over His Missing Cat

The internet can be so mean sometimes.

It’s not really cool to mock someone over their missing cat, but when that person is the cruel, Putin-loving authoritarian leader of Chechnya, it’s OK to rub it in a little bit.

Ramzan Kadyrov – who is fiercely loyal to Putin and who has given human rights organisations plenty to talk about over the years – put out this plea to his 1.8 million Instagram followers last week:


Our cat has vanished. Ten days ago, it disappeared. We all thought that it would turn up soon, since it is very much attached to the children, it loves to play with them… But now we are seriously worried. Perhaps it is staying with somebody in the neighbourhood. Therefore we would be grateful for the information if anybody knows anything. Thanks in advance.

The post racked up 32k likes (crazy) but failed to produce any leads on where his missing cat went.

In fact, most of the internet’s reaction was less than helpful:

Surprisingly, Ramzan addressed the trolling in this Instagram post:

Recently my “tiger cat” has left the house. It happens in spring from time to time. He also needs to meet with friends, mingle and share news. By cat rumors he has in our district a familiar she-cat with which he’s going to start a family. I’m sure that after spring affairs, the cat will return to native walls. Perhaps, he’ll bring his sweet love with him. I got used to share with my friends in Instagram with all news, including cat issues. And this time I didn’t want to leave as a secret the cat’s adventures. I receive lots of photos. Some people say that they saw the cat in Vladivostok, Japan, Iceland, New Zealand, and even in the Oval Office of the White House! I am grateful to all, but this is NOT my cat. It became known that even the American TV channel “HBO” joined to search. The anchorman comedian – John Oliver asks millions of viewers to look for a cat. I knew long ago that in the USA unevenly breathe to my younger friends. One day horses aren’t allowed to jump, the other – a cat is a real star of a show. Oliver laments a fact that we put on t-shirts with a photo of the President of Russia – Vladimir Putin. Yes, millions of people rejoice t-shirts with the image of the national leader. For this purpose, there is a good motivation. Vladimir Vladimirovich is a wise, courageous, resolute Head, who managed to withstand unfriendly campaign, which is conducted by the USA and its assistants. Thanks to Putin, we have crushed terrorists among whom there were also citizens of the USA, and European citizens. The country directed by Obama under the guise of peacekeeping operations spark new wars and bloody internal conflicts, in which die millions of people. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria… That’s why there is nothing surprising that Oliver also got a wish to appear publicly in a T-shirt with an image of Putin, but not Obama. #Kadyrov #Russia #Chechnya #USA #HBO #Oliver #findkadyrovscat #Ihavenotseenyourcat #IHAVESEENYOURCAT

Which led to these genius Tweets from Human Rights East:

I guess the moral of the story is treat people like shit and don’t expect any help when your kitty goes missing.

P.S. Hopefully didn’t get stuck in a lampshade and electrocuted like this cat (don’t worry, she survives).
