The Ten Movement Launches ‘Scooter’s Safari Squad’

September 23, 2021
They’re fun, friendly and affectionate. They have names like Rando, Chester and Dash. They don’t have owners, and they don’t need them. They’re members of Scooter’s Safari Squad. Scooter the Neutered Cat is highlighting members of his Safari Squad in each Greater Cincinnati neighborhood and needs your help to find them. Go out in the “wild” of your neighborhood and look for a community cat with the tip of its ear removed. This is known as “ear tipping” and means the cat has been spayed or neutered and is a perfect nominee for Scooter’s Safari Squad. If you find a community cat without a tipped ear, report it at MildKingdom.org so the cat can be vaccinated, spayed/neutered and returned to its neighborhood.
