Neuter or spay your damned cat or else this is what happens. They multiply, more cats, less food, ugly fights. Taken in Haifa, Israel.

This was NOT done by people!! The cat's ear has a form of cancer that makes it crumple, due to the brutal Israeli sun. The eye is the typical price these feral cats pay for their freedom. Some other cat must have clawed it, got infected and died off. Israelis treat the strays quite well, they give them food, water, shelter, and some bring them to the vet for neutering. So normally it's safe to assume injuries were not caused by human cruelty.

If you credit me (Anna Giladi off site), you can use this for animal welfare purposes ONLY.

I couldn't agree more.
My friends have 3 kittens that are going outside and around 7-8ish months (so they can have kittens now), one of them is a male and is a brother to the second female (the third is also female but not related), guess what? They aren't responsible enough to neuter them before they have inbred kittens, so they're more than likely to end up with tons of deformed kittens and get stuck with them. We neutered our cat (even though the same group of friends tried to convince us to let her have a litter .-.) and I'd definitely neuter any future cats I get too to prevent THIS from happening.   I feel so bad for all the feral cats, there's just too many of them for us all to help.

We never had any injuries like that, but before our cat Tibs was neutered he got into fights with his dad and went around limping. Poor guy...

Yes, I totally agree with the whole neuter and spay yours pets thing. Yes, I know, baby kittens and puppies are cute, but that doesn't mean you breed your animals like crazy, because when they're older, people think they don't seem so cute anymore, and just treat them like trash, that is, if you have too many animals. How 'bout you go and adopt one instead??? No matter how badly injured, you should feel good about yourself for saving another's life.

Btw, the first thing I thought of when I saw this was: BRIGHTHEART. If I was able to own this cat I would name it Brightheart. I feel so sorry for it.

Poor thing. ._.
... It sort of looks like Brightheart from the Warrior's series. The one that lost the side of her face to a dog pack.
