Why am I with a rescue group?

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. 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 waddle into his crate 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. 

Life looks different for Little Nicky. We love him and are prepared to let him live his best days with us. As Nicky has aged, his walk has gotten worse and his ability to jump or climb is almost gone. At times he drags his rear legs to walk. Getting in and out of his litter pan has become more of a challenge. But he is happy as can be. And we will give him as many happy, pain-free days as his little body will allow.
