Vera: A Success Story
Nike is a handsome 11-year old male who had to be surrendered because a person in his household developed a cat allergy. Understandably, he is a bit shy at the shelter after being part of a family for so long. You have to approach him quietly and gently; if you do, he might reward you by sitting on your lap. He also like headbutts & chin scratches. All in all, he is a very friendly cat who loves to be with people. When no people are around, he cuddles with a stuffed cat! Young, noisy kids frighten him, however, so he should go to a household without young children. He would love to find his forever home with an experienced cat owner. Get the application HERE.
