I was getting ready for bed and looked at the back porch camera and noticed there was a black kitty snoozing atop Oliver's guest house - nothing new there.
I needed to lock the back door and hoped to turn off the light, so I went out to the mudroom to do so. The kitty didn't leave, it just watched me through the window in the door.
That's when I noticed something peculiar.
Does this cat look ear-tipped to you?
The cat's left ear looks slightly different than it's right ear, but it still looks rounded to me.
The picture is blurry due to not being able to use the flash through the glass.
Let's get a closer look at that ear...
Ok, lets zoom in even more...
For comparison, here's the right ear zoomed in.
Oliver's three siblings were all ear tipped when they were neutered/spayed. And this guy is not Oliver but I know he is friends with Oliver. Just after taking the last picture, Oliver came onto the porch too and hung out. I also saw one of the ear tipped siblings (not MK) on the porch too.
Could this is a different black cat with a white spot on it's chest who's also part of the Family?! Or maybe the TNR clinic only took off a tiny bit of it's ear?
Oliver's not talking, so it remains a mystery. Let me know what you think, does this cat look ear tipped to you?
