THE LATEST: I feel so much better since I had my eye surgery. Just watch me play!
UPDATE: Haven had bilateral entropion repair surgery, which was a success. She basically got an eye lift to stop her eye lashes from growing into her eyes. She didn't want to have close up shots to show off her beautiful eyes, but we are happy to see them. We are hoping that this surgery might result in Haven having fewer eye infections with less treatment.
I'm called Haven. Maybe that is because I am now in a Safe Haven here at EARS. I guess I was lost, so a good person took me in for medical treatment and then brought me to EARS so they could help me find a FOREVER HOME. I have the prettiest little face. But I do have eye infections due to herpesvirus. Did you know that Feline herpesvirus type 1 (FHV-1) is highly prevalent in cats, with up to 97% of cats being exposed to FHV-1 throughout their lifetime? We just all don't end up needing treatment. So I need to let you know that I could be considered a 'Special Needs' kitty because I require having a special eye cream put into my eyes twice a day. I have very silky fur, and a quiet "voice." I like my human to rub my ears. I really hope that someone with enough patience and love in their heart can give me a safe and comfortable place to call my own. Fingers crossed.
These pictures say it all. Gunner (aka Lobo) and Nog are BFFs.
