Feral Cat Ear Tipping

AREN’T THERE ANY OTHER WAYS TO IDENTIFY A FERAL CAT BESIDES AN EAR TIP?

Tattooing – is not effective because the tattoo is not visible until cats are trapped and anesthetized.

Eartags – are ineffective because they can cause infection, drop off, or tear cats’ ears.

Collars – are not safe because as the cats grow the collars will tighten and could strangle them.

Microchipping – alone it is not effective because it does not allow for visual identification.

EARTIPPING: THE ONLY UNIVERSALLY ACCEPTED, SAFE WAY TO IDENTIFY FERAL CATS.
