Don Sutherland, 22, shared the footage of his cat companion, Aslan, sauntering around their house in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. As you can see his poor cat has had part of his tail amputated and in order to achieve that the surgeon has removed the fur on the tail and from the surrounding area – his backside. He posted the pictures online and it caused hilarity and some jokes. I get the point but I tend to be more concerned about the cat’s well-being than making fun out of the situation.
The commenters have likened the rear end of Aslan to a proboscis monkey monkey or elephant. The cat wears an Elizabethan collar to stop him licking his tail. Aslan means ‘lion’. That is a reference to the cat’s beautiful fur which he has partially lost. It’s a bit sad. We don’t know why he had the operation. There should be a story there because it may have been due to carelessness. I won’t speculate.
