Niles was found in a community cat colony near Niles Street in Hartford. He wasn’t feral, which means he would be much happier living in a home! The volunteer caring for this colony also noticed something wrong with his eyelids, and he underwent surgery for a condition called entropion – in which the eyelids aren’t flush with the eyeball and cause irritation. After his surgery, this initially shy guy came to the sanctuary to make friends with Ziti and Lucky.
His cryosurgery went splendidly! He healed up well and only a couple more follicles need to get re-zapped, and he’ll be getting that done in early May. We are hoping he and Lucky can find a forever home together since they get along so well.
