Due to the pain she was in, it was decided that the best thing to do would be to remove Lady’s ear flaps. While she recovered from her surgery, she stayed at the veterinarian’s office, getting attention and love around the clock. As her pain went away and she began to hear a little better, the sweet cat came out of her shell more and more each day, and once she was back at the shelter, everyone there fell head over heels for the earless cat, too.
“Lady is such a sweet cat,” Collins said. “She loves to cuddle and give head bumps, and our staff and volunteers really enjoyed spending time with her while she recovered.”
Once Lady fully healed and was ready to find her forever family, her new shelter friends were a little worried that her lack of ears would scare away potential adopters. Lady is still so cute even without her ears, of course, but as Collins wondered if other people would see that, she suddenly had the sweetest idea.
