Home Cats, Shelter Cats



Dina came to PAWS a few months ago and is still adjusting to shelter life. She’s a two year old stray who must have an interesting story, but she’s not talking.


You can see that her ear has been clipped, as happens in a TNR (Trap, Neuter, and Return) operation. That way, a feral cat who has been spayed or neutered is easily identified. While Dina is shy, she’s certainly not feral!
It’s a mystery how she ended up on the streets.
She gets along well with her roommates, like gentle Rudy, tuxedo cat.


Our own Rufus the Red has the same Badge of Honor.

Dina is a really nice kitty. That second picture of her (the one with our buddy, Rudy) is wonderful, Maggie. You totally captured her sweet and gentle nature. 🙂

She is beautiful. I adore dilute calicos. I hope she gets her forever home soon. My Snowball and Brody both have eartips.

What a beautiful girl!!!

As one who has a shorter ear herself, I can say that there is absolutely nothing wrong with a shorter ear, TNR or not it can be worn with pride and no way makes us any less lovable. Dina and Rudy both look enchanting, I wish they both could find a home, together maybe… purrs ERin

Rufus and Dina have the sweetest faces ever. Mom just wants to take them up in her arms and bring them home. Of course, she knows she cannot. So we will be purring and praying extra hard that all three of these sweeties find homes super fast. Thanks for sharing them here on the hop!

I’m always surprised to see friendly cats with ear tips. It makes me wonder if they weren’t friendly at one point and then changed, or if they just acted feral because they were trapped. Cats are so mysterious.

I wish they did TNR here, and not just with cats but with other ferral animals too. In Australia cats that have been neutered get an ear tattoo. This is the first time I’ve seen the ear clipping method of identification.

Gorgeous! I would love to have the last kitty cuddle up!

Dina is a beauty! (It looks like the vets in the area take a really large chunk for the ear tipping…I guess to make sure there’s no question they’ve been fixed!)
