After going through all the hassle of finding the shelter and renting a live trap we came to a new realization.

Will Feral had already made this trip.

When I checked his ears before he'd always been back in the brush and with his black ears it was hard to tell whether or not his ears had been notched.

Seriously?  You couldn't see this?

We were sitting outside and he came halfway across the yard to be nearer to us and with the green all around him I could see very clearly the tell-tale left ear notch.

Ha ha you get to explain when you return the cage!
I guess Will has the last laugh.

Long Live the Queen


  1. He's a beautiful cat, but I do not know the meaning of the notched ear. I think this is a terrible thing to do to an animal. I hope Will does find a good home. Hugs, Edna B.

  2. The notched ear is actually a good thing as it makes it clear to anyone wanting to help the cat that it has already been neutered, given a rabies shot and treated for parasites. Otherwise the cat could forgo the trauma of being captured again and only after preparing it for surgery would it be evident it was already fixed. It's the best they can do in a bad situation and at least stops the constant uncontrolled breeding.
