When you’re a social teen cat, four months of isolation must seem like an eternity!

That’s what befell X-Ray, a 15-month-old long-haired local stray. Because he was brought to NEAS with a wound of unknown origin on his forehead and multiple puncture marks, the law required that we keep him apart from other animals. Poor X-Ray looked like he had been on the losing end of a cat fight.

But when some of the puncture wounds still had not healed after two months, a medical procedure was needed to find out why. Turns out there was a small skull fragment under his wound that needed to be removed.

While in isolation, the shelter staff fell in love with this super sweet kitty, so it came as no surprise when X-Ray was adopted on the day his quarantine ended!
