Harry was rescued from the Staten Island Animal Control Center of New York in September 2019. He was at risk since he was a stray, and had several contagious conditions that would immediately place him on the euthaniasa list. Harry has been through it all! He is overall a healthy kitty with a just a difficult start to his 9 lives. He came to us with a terrible kitty cold (URI) ear mites, ear infection, skin infections, fleas and ticks. He also had continous issues with his eyes and despite several rounds of antibiotic and antiviral eye drops, Harry's eyes would still look inflammed and infected.
Harry has a condition in both eyes called entropion.
What is entropion?
Entropion is a rare eye condition in which the eye lid turns inward causes irritation, pain and possible infection of the cat's eye. ... In many cases, a cat will require surgery to return the eyelid to its normal position.
When you look at Harry you can see the irritation his condition is causing his eyes. We can only treat him with lubricating eye drops to lower the rate of irritation.
Harry requires a surgical procedure that should permanently keep his eye lids in the right place.
We are trying to raise the funds to cover the cost of his surgery, which should cap at $650. The longer Harry goes without surgery the more at risk Harry is for damage to his eye permanently. Due to his condition we cannot place him up for adoption until he has had his surgery and his condition has cleared. This surgery is basically life changing for little Harry.
