rescued cat with deformed ear

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I just had to post his pic here. The new rescue I am with now pulled this darling boy from that awful county shelter I complain about.

They named him Tony. This is is shelter pic - not very good. It just upsets me... he was picked up as a stray and obviously not well cared for in his life.

His coat is in terrible shape, he is , skinny, dirty and matted and has a cauliflower ear ... just pure neglect. Of course we don't know how long he was a stray either.

He is a tall boy - and would weigh 12-15 lbs I think with some meat on his bones. I was wondering, too, if given his colorpoint pattern, thicker coat and size ... if he could possibly have some Raggie in him?

Anyway - here he is:

Yes- he is in VERY good hands. He will get groomed and a bath - he smells. He's wonderful btw - great sweet personality. Which - plus his size - makes me think some Raggie is in there.

To answer the question of why... who knows? People are stupid and callous. What we often see in rescue is that someone likes the fluffy kitten but gets tired of looking after the not-as-cute adult. This happens with pups too... they grow out of that "awww" stage and people dump them.

That's why I try to impress on people that cute ball of fluff only lasts a few months while you will have an adult cat likely for 15 years!

My Jordan has a cauliflower ear, well actually his looks more like a dogs ear because it is folded in half. Jordan had a hematoma I couldn't afford to fix & my guess is that is why this sweet boy has the cauliflow ear also. What a hansome man this guy is!

One of our shelter-resident cats has that, too. Had a hematoma and it left the ear deformed.

Addie, did he have a microchip?

He looks VERY like a cat we had that was adopted into the US (I think NY)

No- they scan them when they come in. He's chipped now, though.
There is another surrended cat there that also looks a bit like a Raggie - 8 years old. I will post his pic.

It was the ear that got me, I emailed them just to check and they took a photo with todays newspaper just to reassure me

They kept his name of Crinkle in honour of his crinkled ear
