Niko passed away in July of 2015 from cancer caused by feline leukemia, though he was vaccinated. He spend the summer of 2013 as an outdoor cat. This was a bad idea. PLEASE keep your cats inside if you want them to live to a ripe old age. I miss you so much, Niko :(
Niko is a little shit that we found wandering the streets of Chandler, AZ at 2 in the morning. He was the mangiest, sickliest, open sored, and hungriest cat I have ever seen. He stopped to eat some french fries and I went out to make sure that he didn't get hit by a car since we were by a busy street. Instead of bolting, as feral cats do, he meowed at me and started asking me for food and help. How could I say no?? I ran to the closest walmart and grabbed the largest kitty carrier I could find. We took him to the vet and he tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia. Whew!!
