Reason for being in rescue: found as a stray
Special Needs: Little Nicky is allergic to fleas. He must be on flea & tick preventative for the rest of his life. Little Nicky is a wibbly wobbly guy - our vet believes it is due to mild cerebellar hypoplasia
What kind of home would be best for me: If you are looking for a young, playful cat, Little Nicky is your boy. He likes cats and dogs equally and lives in our medical clinic. Nicky's main criteria is someone who loves young kitten energy but a snuggle buddy when it is bed time.
What is my personality like: Little Nicky was found while a CPR employee was helping a neighbor at the farm gather her goats that had gotten out. She noticed he looked sickly and decided to bring him back to the farm to nurse him back to better health. Little Nicky is as cute as can be, but had patches of missing hair all over his body. This is due to a flea allergy. Once he became routinely flea free, his coat has grown in beautifully. He will need to be kept on monthly flea preventative.
Little Nicky isn't the most graceful kitty, but he tries to be! Sometimes he falls when he tries to leap to another spot and even wobbles when he walks. Our veterinarian believes this is from mild cerebellar hypoplasia which can stem from exposure to panleukopenia virus between 6 and 12 weeks of age. No worries! Little Nicky is in no pain and this should not be a problem long term per the vet! Nicky is still young, so as you can imagine nothing is going to stop him from playing like any other young cat. He can entertain himself for hours finding things on the floor to pounce on, or chase. He is a lively soul and loves to have little talks with you. He will "meow" at you as long as you are talking to him. After a morning full of playing he likes to climb up in the cat tower and take naps.
Little isn't too sure what cat treats are yet. He is social and loves to meet people.. anything that will get him more attention! Nicky gets along great with dogs and will even rub up against them to cuddle. He has pretty much ignored the other office cat, Salem. Nicky is just a sweet and playful kitten that would do well in any home that is looking for a cat to love.
How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly
Tips and Tidbits: Estimated Birthdate: 4/16/2016. Little Nicky is a bundle of love packed into a tiny body!
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
