Here is what Nile’s foster has to say about him: “Niles is a chonky tabby with a goofy grin who is often bleppy with his tongue out. He likes to have lots of attention and to be where the people are so he can see what’s going on while talking to you about it. Right now as I write he is curled up on the sofa beside my desk so he can be nearby. Niles is not generally a lap cat, but more of a side cuddler who always sleeps next to me in bed at night. As Niles has become more comfortable here his sillier side has come out. He enjoys certain toys – particularly scrunchy ones, and crumpled up post-it notes – and has a favourite tiny black mouse.Niles would likely do best in a home where he can be doted on, and perhaps have a kitty companion as well. While he does not generally appreciate being picked up, Niles is a verydocile cat who will only get squirmy when unhappy.”
Special needs: Niles has FIV, which is an immune disorder caused by a virus passed through deep bite wounds so he likely got it when he was on the streets unneutered and fighting with other unneutered males. Niles could potentially be adopted into a home with another cat so long as the adopter understands that there is a potential risk during the integration period should they have a cat without FIV in the home
Estimated date of birth of Niles is January 9, 2012.
