Adopted by Kyra & Josh
To put it quite simply this young boy was almost dead when we got him out of the shelter. He weighed 6.42 pounds.We knew what was wrong, FIP. After six weeks of daily treatments for his illness he was over 10 pounds. He is now over 11.5 pounds and is still growing. He loves food and is putting all his calories into his long legs and long body. He is going to be a very big cat. His coat is thickening some but maybe because it is summer it is not his priority right now. That is a polite way of saying his coat is a bit disreputable and doesn’t match the beauty of his eyes. The shelter shaved his tummy and you can see the hair there has not grown in yet at all. His hind end was fairly bare from excessive flea scratching and is still lagging behind. (No pun intended )
Many folks have heard that there is treatment for FIP (Feline Infection Peritonitis), a dread illness that used to be inevitably fatal. While it is not yet FDA approved, all over the world people are obtaining the medicine known as GS and giving it to their cats. It was an immediate life saver for Nico. Magic. I have heard that UC Davis is working to bring it to market. I hope so. Nico’s last dose is 7/31.
Of course Nico’s blue eyes in his striking dark head grab everyone’s attention. He is clearly a gorgeous seal point boy but what is his genetic history? He has the long legs and long body of a Ragdoll who are the biggest breed. His eyes are rounder than a Siamese cat’s. The ears of both Siamese cats and Ragdolls have rounded tips. Nico’s fur is growing in but he has not had enough time for it to grow like a Ragdolls. Will it grow long ? The photo’s in this bio were taken in different weeks and vary. The more recent ones show what looks like the beginning of a ruff below his chin. The darkness of the seal coloring on his head says he is an adult even though he plays like a kitten.
We put him out on a catio for a photo shoot. He was curious and interested til the connecting door closed. We went in to open it. Nico got distressed right away. He has been locked out before. Nico is affectionate and loves humans. He needs a stable home with cat experienced humans who can help him forget the stresses of his early life. He can get over excited with feathers and catnip. He is a big cat and I would not suggest him for young children or anyone unstable on their feet. He is cat friendly and would probably train a nonaggressive dog.
Some family will be so lucky to have his beautiful company,
Nico is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
He is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.

NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone’s best interests!
