That reminds me of the time a stray cat walked into my friends house and we gave him milk. He stayed there for 7 months. Haha.
I once moved into a place and a black cat just came in through the patio and walked around like it owned the place. It never begged for food or affection it'd just come in, cross the living room and go sleep in the kitchen on the cold tiles. It never acknowledged me or any of my housemates. We later found out it was from two houses down that had a pair of toddlers that would play with it endlessly. I guess it just needed a break.
Looks to me like you're going to have a lot more on the way very soon.
Maybe the OP can tell if the cat is already fixed by looking at the animals' ear. Some places, like the Humane Society, clip a huge chunk of the cat's left ear off when the females gets spayed. It's so that people can know by glance if that stray cat has already been fixed. I can somewhat understand why it's done but still think it's cruel. I made sure that my vet didn't do it to my cats since they're indoor. Thank goodness I spoke up because it would have been done without even telling me about it beforehand.
my cat also suddenly came home with the neighbours cat, they go for walks together and I'm pretty sure that they are either best bros or gay haha. both males and castrated and my cat is named Madonna haha (got a girl who suddenly grew a junk but already responded to his name lol) animal couples are the cutest!!
#65 Cats getting their ears clipped is very common when they get spayed. It's to let people know the cat is already fixed so that they don't bring them in for that same procedure. I think it didn't happen to your cat ONLY because of that microchip you had placed in her. The tattoo lets people know your cat has that chip and most likely fixed.
they do it in ohio at some places because some people take strays in and then release them back to where they were (obviously after they heal). so they clip their ears to show that they are fixed. I do not like the fact they do it, but they do fix them to help make the population of animals go down and so people know especially when they take them to the vet that they are indeed fixed.
I've also never heard of that being done, but I would assume that the cat is put under anaesthesia (probably during the same operation). Assuming that the cat is given painkillers/the wound is cleaned, it probably wouldn't be in much pain. And that's an extremely easy way to tell if a cat is fixed. Although it's not ideal, it's better than someone wasting time trapping and taking a cat in to the vet that's already been fixed, when one that hasn't been could have been taken in for the operation instead.
Hope you spayed/neutered your cat. If it's a stray and doesn't already belong to someone else, you could think about adopting it - it apparently gets along very well with your cat.
