Loves to play!
This handsome boy came to us with severe mouth issues making it difficult for him to eat. Underweight and depressed, he was diagnosed with stomatitis and had almost all of his teeth removed in March 2021. Thankfully, he has recovered and is not hindered by his lack of teeth, so don't let that discourage you from meeting this sweetie-pie!
Due to his previous mouth issues - Niko developed a curious little habit of holding his mouth open slightly, it doesn't seem to cause any issues except for making him a serial blepper! (the term for when a cat, seemingly unknowingly, has the tip of his tongue sticking out)
Niko can be a bit shy in new situations, but warms up quickly and loves to explore! He is also a sucker for an automated toy or a good ol' game of fetch. While he might not always be on your lap, he is very social and will frequently follow you around from room to room - just to be near you.
Due to his previous issues, he can be a little sensitive about you touching his face and we recommend a home with children who are old enough to respect his space.
