Likes: To sleep on my pillow w/me. She's great at keeping my head warm.
Pet-Peeves: Not getting a spot at the sunny cat window and having to sleep on the sofa.
Favorite Toy: One of the younger cats.
Favorite Nap Spot: On top of my head on my pillow!
Favorite Food: Anything - especially MEAT! She also adores Aquariyums & Pounce treats.
Skills: She can jump farther than any other cat I've seen - even at her advanced age. She can also head-butt w/the best of them.
Arrival Story: My husband "bought" Nikolai from a small child selling kittens. He paid $2.99 for her b/c that was the amount the child was asking. [Isn't that odd?!] Nik was our first cat and she's the matriarch of our pounce of furry female felines.
Bio: She is the only cat we've ever purchased as all of our other girls have been homeless or shelter kitties. We don't feel bad for paying for her b/c she was going to a shelter if the child didn't sell her to someone... We're suckers for animals in need!
Death: Nikolai was diagnosed w/Feline Diabetes on June 30, 2008. We treated her w/Insulin & special foods, and she did well for three months. Her decline in health began in early October 2008, and she was euthanized on October 8, 2008. She was a beloved member of our family and she will be missed daily.
