Mr No Ears the Street Wise Cat of Portugal

mrnoears2

Mr No Ears is a cat you cannot miss with a solid white coat, one eye, and no ears who lives on the street as part of a feral colony and is close to a sunny beach called Praia do Peneco in Albufeira, Portugal.

He is about four years old and lost an eye from illness when he was a little kitten.  He also suffers from some skin problems because his white coat does not protect him from the sun as well as darker coats. This does not prevent him from being very energetic and seeking out attention.

Visitors are sometimes concerned by his appearance, but the colony is watched over by Amigos dos Gatos do Algarve, a small charity set up by Lesley Normington in 2000 to support street and feral cats in the Algarve, Portugal. All members of the colony have been sterilized and the colony is managed on a daily basis by someone  who feeds and attends to any health issues the colony may have.
