Ear Tipping or Cropping
Cropped left ear.

When feral and stray cats are trapped and brought to one of our clinics they are spayed or neutered. They also receive rabies and distemper vaccinations. In order to identify the cats that have already been sterilized the left ear is slightly cropped (Note the left ear in the pictures.). This lets rescuers know if the cat they just trapped or are trying to trap has already been sterilized.

Croped left ear.
