Puss in Boots was underweight, had severe cat flu and gum disease. Even more shocking, his right eye was missing from the socket, which was filled with discharge and had eyelids that were stuck closed.
“Puss in Boots would have been in a lot of pain,” said Amanda, cattery coordinator at the Home.
Nothing could be done to save Puss in Boots’ right eye. To preserve his quality of life, vets in our shelter medicine team performed surgery to remove the eye contents from the socket.
Puss in Boots spent a week recovering under the care of our vets and nurses before he was well enough to go to a foster home, where he spent three weeks recovering.
Puss in Boots has lots of love to give. He has become a really outgoing and affectionate cat,” said Amanda.
“He is looking for a home where he can really be part of the family, he loves cuddles and smooches,” said Amanda.
“Due to his initially reserved nature, he would like a home where his new family will let him settle in slowly. It won’t take long before he is tripping people up while trying to get their attention.”
