One of his ears was clipped, as a sign that Rcy was considered a wild cat and had just undergone sterilization.

Regarding the issue, Choon Entertainment gave a statement and explained that Rcy had indeed been submitted for adoption by others. The dark-haired cat’s behavior is claimed to be harmful to Yong-guk’s other cats. Choon Entertainment said, “Kim Yong-guk adopted Gagu in June and joined Tolbi and Rcy at the dormitory. However, Gagu and Rcy were not getting along and therefore, Kim Yong-guk had decided to put Rcy up for adoption. After Rcy was adopted, he tried to contact the new owner but was not able to reach them. He was very worried and it wasn’t until September 25, 2018, that he found out the paint had run away from its new owner.”
