Wisconsin stray cat loses ears to infection, gets new set of purple crocheted ones

MADISON, Wis. — That was sew nice.

A stray cat in Wisconsin lost her ears to an infection, but now she has some new ones after a woman crocheted her some new ones, WTMJ reported.

The cat, named Lady in a Fur Coat, had to have her ear flaps removed according to the Dane County Humane Society. The feline was bought into the Humane Society in December and began treatment for chronic ear infections, spokeswoman Marissa DeGroot told CNN.

The cat's appearance was a little unsettling, so Ash Collins, who works at the Humane Society, decided to crochet Lady an ear bonnet, CNN reported.

It took some gentle persuasion and treats, but the cat finally was fitted into her new purple ears.

"It's amazing because we see these strays and medical cases come in and I think we're always surprised by their resiliency," DeGroot told CNN.

Less than 24 hours after the Humane Society posted the cat's story on Facebook, Lady was adopted.
