KATT – A1036316
*SAFE* 05/19/15- Meet KATT the cat! Katt was brought in as a stray. He has a large amount of swollen tissue covering her cornea. The vet thinks she may need an enucleation. She was not comfortable when being handled during her exams and showed fractious behavior, especially when her eye was touched. I met Katt this morning and when I approached her cage, she was purring. I opened her cage to take her picture and she allowed me to pet her gently behind her ears. She continued to purr the entire time and then posed for a picture! Isn’t her coloring gorgeous?!
