Cat owner ear tipped their domestic cat’s left ear to make him acceptable under the law — 3 Comments

  1. Owned cats often have eartips. I don’t know about CA but in TX and elsewhere cats done at the free clinics have mandatory eartips. Some owners can also request it if their cats will be outdoors and they want to be sure that it won’t be picked up.

    • Thanks for that Kit. It seems to be used therefore in a misleading way because it is saying the cat is a community cat (to avoid breaking the law or to be picked up) and not an owned cat. Isn’t this a lie? Ear tipping of domestic cats is never done in the UK.

  2. Not cool doing that without anesthetic! A vet would say that’s practicing veterinary medical care without a license too. I don’t get why at least some of these ear-tips don’t result in aural hematoma either… an expensive and lengthy injury to correct without amputation. Glad P.C. wasn’t arrested and fined.
