An 8-year-old white stray cat named Luna recently had her ears removed after getting sunburned in Kilmarnock, Scotland. Her hearing is intact, although it will take some time for her to regain her confidence.

The charity Cats Protection in North Ayrshire is looking for a home for Luna. Although Luna may look a little unusual with her clipped ears, they are optimistic someone will take her home.

"People might be put off by the way she looks, but cats that have problems like only three legs or a missing eye quite often get the sympathy vote," said volunteer Nina Chisholm.

The Cats Protection charity encourages owners with white or pale-colored cats to make sure their pets have extra protection from the sun, because light-colored cats are more susceptible to sunburns.

"To help reduce the risk of sunburn, try to keep susceptible cats indoors or in the shade between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., when the sun is at its hottest."
