Fix and Fancy
A feral cat is an unsocialized outdoor cat who has either never had any physical contact with humans, or human contact has diminished over enough time that it is no longer accustomed to it. Most feral cats are fearful of people and are not likely to ever become a lap cat or enjoy living indoors.
TNR is an acronym which means Trap/Neuter/Return
An ear tip (usually left ear) is a universally recognized symbol of a cat who has been spayed/neutered and vaccinated. Ear tipping is a standard part of most TNR programs because it is simply the best method to let everyone know at a glance that the cat has gone through the program.
