I wasn't always a Indoor Kitty. For a while, I had to survive on my own Outdoors.
Kitties, I'll admit it, when I showed up at Mommy & Daddy's door, I was starving. It was cold out and there weren't any birdies or mousies to eat. Not even a bug.
To make matters worse, I still had my Manly Bits. You might think this was a good thing, but really it wasn't. Those Bits make us ManCats chase LadyCats and FightFightFight other ManCats that have THEIR Manly Bits.
Do you see my left Ear? It's pretty rough.
There's bald spots where SomeCat(S) bit through my Ear!
And there are patches on both my Ears where the Velvet Flocking has worn off and doesn't grow at all anymore.
