Meet Niko (New Digs)!

Meet Niko, an affectionate and curious kitty looking for his furever home! Niko is a 2 ½ year old male adopted as a kitten from a rescue agency in Wisconsin. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on his vaccinations.

Since kittenhood, Niko has delighted in both play and snuggles. He is happy to chase the laser dot around the house, but afterwards he wants to sit in your lap, purr, and nap. He is also very intelligent – his favorite game is for his owners to hide mice stuffed with treats around the house for him to find. No matter where you hide it (including up the chimney!), Niko will find it! He loves attention, and he greets any house guests at the door, expecting some pets in exchange for his hospitality. Niko has not been around dogs or cats before, but he is very gentle and patient with children. He is fully litterbox trained and does not scratch furniture.

In order to thrive, Niko needs lots of attention and love. When he does not get enough interaction, he gets anxious, and he expresses his anxiety by overgrooming the fur on his belly. Consequently, he has some bald spots on his tummy! He would do best in a family that offers him daily cuddles and playtime, has enough space for him to explore, and is open to a sleeping companion at night. Niko’s current owners love him dearly, but some new family dynamics have rendered them unable to continue to care for him.

This cuddly and playful boy is deserving of a furever home! Could it be with you? Adopt Niko today!
