Kitten Ear Cropping..

with 2 comments

I might be one of the 1st Peru bloggers to report on this and never being a cat owner, don’t know how common this is worldwide; though, it’s something that happens to many young cats around here.  Owners will use scissors to chop off the points of kittens ears because of customary ‘health’ reasons.  Apparently the cat will run into back problems and balance problems if the ears are not cropped.  I’ve also heard the cats are faster and have better digestion after this treatment, but I have a hard time believing the results.

This is Miss Tiger, and she has a new look.

  1. Interesting. Apparently it is done as a universal sign for a neutered pet: http://www.neighborhoodcats.org/HOW_TO_EARTIPPING
