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 shy guy made his way to the Sanctuary and enjoys making friends with our other feline guests.
Niles has been enjoying his living room time during the days when it’s quiet. He loves to come out of his room and explore new things and smells, and visit Elsie. Niles has also started going outside on his catio more lately, where he will occasionally touch noses with neighbor Ralph. He has been a little more playful during the evenings too!
