Tippy

We have confirmation that Henry was TNR'd; the ear tip is key!
We know folks don't like the idea of the ear tip, but now you can see its usefulness.

If Henry was living in a feral colony, the human caretakers can tell which cats were already spayed/neutered, and which had not...because of the ear tip. 

Henry continues to prefer to stay a distance from me, but he gives me many blinks every day, so I know that he knows, that we want to help him.

Am so very thankful for whomever TNR'd Henry; they are doing good work, and more gratitude for all who get out there to trap and take care of colonies of community cats.

It is nice to know that Henry will not sire more unwanted feral kittens. And that someone was able to catch him to take care of it. He looks to be content with friendly visits to see you and hope he stays around so he is safe.

Yes, in regard to the TNR the ear tipping is valuable.
Henry looks like he is approaching HIS people—they sure sense who is helping them.
Hugs,
Mariette + Kitties

Oh I TOTALLY agree. Ear-tippin' is a great thing, to be sure. My late, great brother Rushton Tapio was ear-tipped, you know. Peeps think maybe he had lived in a barn before comin' here. PURRS

That is good news he has been TNR. I thought I could see a tipped ear in previous photos.

Glad he has already been neutered.

It's good that you have his "credentials" now. So glad he is neutered.

Ear tipping is a great thing for TNR folks and the cats they help. Blessings to all those hard at work. And best wishes to you and yours, of course. :D

Kitties Blue: We currently have an unneutered male hanging around our yard. Would love to trap him and have to deed done. No idea where he came from. I’ve been advertising him on Lost/Found pet websites but nobody has claimed him. Been calling him Mr. Orange..

Are you going to try to bring him in? I guess first things first: earning his trust.
