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.
Lucky and Niles can often be spotted together, melting into a fur puddle on the catio on the hottest days of summer. They only come inside now when it’s “too cold” out – aka, below 75*F! Maybe they should get adopted by someone who is planning to move to Hawaii!
