Cat in a Box

It is Women’s Day in South Africa and Lifestyle ran some specials for the ladies, and here is one that we stumbled across, the Cat in a box, a cat lady started kit.

This cat is part of a beautiful group of TNR cats who live in Lifestyle. As you can see, its left ear has been clipped as part of the TNR programme, which means Trap, Neuter, and Return. This programme traps free living cats, fixes them that they can’t reproduce, then returns them back into their environment. This is the most humane thing to do, and by this way the cats themselves prevent other stray cats coming into the area and the population stays down.

So if you ever see a tipped ear cat, know that it is doing an important job, keeping the neighbourhood a nice place to live.
