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.
After undergoing another eye lid surgery, Niles has been representing the new fashion trend of blue cones. The amount of eye drops he has to receive has upped, but he continues to well for us with the restraint training staff gives him. He has been successfully using pee pads, but we gave him a “buffet” of litter options to see what kind he is most comfortable with!
