Likes: Looking out of the window, Finding little nooks and crannies to hide in, Catnip (he's very bossy with it), Being petted and spoken to softly, Sleeping with his belly up
Pet-Peeves: He doesn't like to be smothered and if I persist he ends up hissing at me. He doesn't like sitting on laps either.
Favorite Toy: Leo (another cat)
Favorite Nap Spot: Under the bed, on the bed, in a corner of the living room, by the water dish.
Favorite Food: He loves to eat, and eats too much. I think he especially likes tuna.
Skills: He's a very special boy! He's very sensitive to smells and loud noise, he purrs the loudest, he's very smart, he has a powerful bite (he is a mouser) and his meow is always coated with honey...
Arrival Story: A poor little abandoned kitten had taken up so-called residence in a small park in New york city. People would leave the kitten cans of food because they felt sorry for an affectionate orange little runt that lived on a stone ledge. One day my husband even saw him trembling from freezing cold, with cold rain pouring out of the sky and nowhere to hide... So he decided to take him home :) The next time he came with a cat carrier, into which this little kitten jumped with a peculiar relief. In this next chapter of his life, Nikki had to go through a lot of veterinary treatment, but he made it.
A few years later, the first day Nikki ever met me, he resisted meeting me by hiding for an hour behind the couch with a freaked expression on his face. But over time he came to like me and we became close friends. We both found home in each other's company!
Bio: Nikki is closest to my heart... I don't know how it came to be... but I think he is my feline soulmate. I'm not sure if it's because he has a very big personality with incredibly beautiful sparkling eyes, or a sweetness lurking under his tough demeanor that makes me love him so. There is also something very spiritual about him. Sometimes I think he can read my thoughts and soothe them in a subtle way without doing anything. He's extremely affectionate in his own searingly beautiful way...
