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.
Niles had a couple more eyelashes removed at his follow-up appointment and is looking great. Clicker training has helped a lot with him getting used to his eye-drops – but I doubt he’ll ever love it as much as he loves hanging out with his pal Lucky!
Niles just celebrated his one year birthday and is ready for a home! Niles is a sweet, playful cat looking for a quiet, adult/older teen home where he can relax and have some fun with his family! He’s come a long way from being a shy guy and has made many human and cat friends, especially his “big bro” Lucky! If you are looking for a pair of handsome feline fellas, these two are certainly it! Niles does have a condition that requires daily eye drops, but he’s a total champ when the time comes! If you can give this lovely guy the love that he needs, please contact Our Companions at 860-242-9999 or email Helpline@OurCompanions.org.
