    Default Earless Kalamazoo cat finds a permanent home

    Tess McEnroe | Kalamazoo GazetteEarless Ernie looks up, as if asking you, "Why did you leave me outside to die?"
    His name is Ernie. Earless Ernie.
    He's lived a hard life out on the unforgiving streets of Kalamazoo. Scrawny, more skin than bone, barely surviving in the freezing weather. Even his ears were snipped off (that's how he got his monicker).
    January 22, 2009: Associated Press: A scrawny, silvery cat discovered roaming in freezing weather with his ears intentionally snipped off has found a temporary home in a downtown Kalamazoo boutique. The cat apparently had been abandoned near the Kalamazoo-Van Buren county line when someone turned him in Jan. 6.
    The cuts where Ernie's ears were removed are healing but the shoulder blades on his thin frame still stick out awkwardly.
    Then Ernie found refuge in the care of Lana Hawkins.
    January 22, 2009: Kalamazoo Gazette: Lana Hawkins couldn't help but pity the scrawny, silvery cat whose ears were missing. "I figured he wouldn't have a chance of getting adopted. He was such a sweet, gentle cat," said Hawkins, a Kalamazoo boutique owner who often helps stray cats.
    "I'm a bleeding heart, I guess."
    You can find Earless Ernie at Hawkin's downtown boutique, Lana's Couture, on the Kalamazoo Mall, sleeping near the cash register with his mind on his money and his money on his mind.
