Niki, another cat of mine

Niki

Today I want to introduce you to Niki, another cat of mine. She was the second born of Little Jessie. I talked about Little Jessie  in a previous post.

He was born on August 20, 2001, together with Julie and Husky.

Niki is a tomcat.

Niki

Niky, another cat of mine has lived a beautiful life with my family for 15 and a half years.

Childhood

Like all newborn kittens, she spent her time sucking from her mother and sleeping most of the time.

He learned very quickly how to use the litter box. It was a very clean kitten. When the time came, Jessie charged him.

He grew up as ‘after the book’.

Going beyond this stage of his life, he became an enchanted kitten. I all loved him, but my husband loved him the most.

We were still living in the block at the time of his birth. She wasn’t going out. So he didn’t have too many adventures.

He liked to sit in the washing machine.

When, I was washing, I had to first check the car so it wouldn’t be in it.

But we got home.

At home

About moving home I told you more. The most difficult was the “transfer” of the flats to the new home.

However, all kittens, including Niki, have adapted relatively easily and quickly. We moved in early winter, so the kittens stayed home only.

When spring came, however, they went out into the yard and the garden. Niki was no exception.

On the contrary, he explored the yard and garden. It was played in the sun. Various insects hunted. Or just laziness.

was also inventive to achieve her goal. For example, one day, when I wanted to cook, I didn’t find the whole piece of meat I had left in the fridge. While searching, I found it in the dog’s cage. And I realized what happened. Niki frequently opened the fridge to serve delicacies from it. That’s what happened then. It’s just that this time he worked with George, one of my dogs. Niki was a good friend of the dog. George took the piece of meat in the cage for later. They didn’t eat it because they were full lol.

Soon after this happened, I took another fridge, with the freezer at the bottom, also has a separate door. Thus, we hope that Niki can no longer walk in the fridge.

I made many changes in the house after the tails of cats lol, so that they will be safe and at the same time not to scratch their mobile or have unwanted behavior.

Some adventures of Niki

Niki was a very gentle and loving kitten. He liked to stand in his arms and be spoiled. But he was also a great hunter. When, I ate I was able to get my food out of my mouth. And not once did that happen. But I never punished him. I was just having fun.

He liked to climb the house. From there he had a panorama of the whole court. And he didn’t want to give up. When he got bored, he was crying for my husband to take him down. Every time, the husband climbs the house and takes him in his arms. Then they both went down. And Niki was pampered in his arms.

I remember one time when I was gone for recovery at a spa resort, Niki spilled her husband’s hot coffee. And not everywhere, but exactly on him. Good thing I wasn’t home.

The husband ran to the doctor, and with his help, he treated Niki for the burn, so he recovered fairly quickly. When I returned, it was only the story my husband told me.

At another house

After eight years we moved again. My family has grown considerably (only with cats).

This move was also difficult. But the house, the yard, and the garden were bigger.

Niki has adapted this time. He liked to run on the stairs or outside, through the yard and the garden. It was just as encouraging. Yes from
enchanted.

He also remained a good friend of George’s.

Niki and George

Although it is said that you look like a ,,cat-dog” about someone you don’t understand, I can contradict this statement with arguments.

The days passed and Niki felt wonderful at the new house. Until one day, when he started having breathing problems. But the doctor I had then, Tom, treated him. About 3-4 months she was given injections, after which Niki felt good again. This has been going on for years.

Three years ago, however, the doctor got tired of his life and went to a happier place, although he was only 49 years old. We tried to treat Niki to another doctor. He did analyze,  but found nothing. Shortly after this, Niki left for Tom.

I still miss him, no one takes my food from my mouth anymore. It’s very sad when you lose a kitten because you have many more.

This post is in memory of Niki, my beloved kitten.

Conclusion

If you are lonely, depressed or ill, adopt a cat. It will require only a little food

and affection. In the difficult moments, two big and intelligent eyes will look for you in the soul. A soft lip will chew your cheek.

As Niki has done countless times. He was both good and bad, around us. He handled us, relieved our pain. Do not underestimate the love of a cat or its healing power of the wounds and beyond.

If you are in a better situation, adopt a cat. With just a little extra work, the benefits cannot be quantified.

If you have a cat, I would be happy to leave a comment telling me an adventure of hers. Absolutely all cats have adventures lol.

I’m a big cat loving, since the young baby.   My mother was great loving cats, grandmother as well.   My daughter is coming to the end. My daughter loves cats so much that she makes a second faculty: veterinary medicine.   Four generations, what do you think?

 

You can now learn to comunicate directly with your cat

  1. Lol! If I could, I would gave loved to meet Nikki and George. Wow! They are very amusing and exciting to know of. Lol! I just couldn’t stop laughing learning about Nikki’s masterpiece adventures and how he operates smoothly without leaving any traced behind. I have q cat though we just adopted him less than a month ago and he is just settling well in to the apartment. I have my fingers crossed already as I look forward to seeing his adventures. Thanks

  2. Niki is a cutie! I’m glad to hear that Niki was a clean kitten who learned how to use the cat box early. I know that sometimes it can be difficult to train a pet, especially certain cats and dogs. Looks like Niki is a clean kitten too, ready for a bath in the washing machine! I always think it’s adorable when cats and dogs get along like that in your video. You’ve definitely inspired me to learn more about domestic cats and I’ll so so through your link, well done!

  3. This is a very interesting story and it’s nice to meet Niki, I really love it when cats and dogs get along, they can actually become good friends too, I will never forget when I was young, my sister and I had a pet cat, it was a friendly cat but would often go on a walk about but would always come running back when we rattled her dinner plate, however she must have made a friend while on one of here walkabouts because she mysteriously starting putting on weight and yes you’ve probably guessed it she was having kittens, my sister and I were thrilled, she gave birth to five kittens, well, my sister and I wanted to keep every one, but unfortunately we couldn’t but we did find good homes for them so alls well that ends well I suppose, thank you for sharing. 

  4. Thank you very much for sharing with us all this fun facts about your amazing cat, I read the other post where out talked about little Jessie, Niki way of life seems simple and fun and oftentime my uncle’s cat also like to stay in the washing basin just like niki, Tomcats are always a great sight to behold and they always love adventures.

  5. You really know how to warm my heart with you lovely stories of Nikki. I really like this story of Nikki and I think Nikki and George are really fascinating. How Niki can go on with all the activities without leaving a trace is awesome. Lol. I really wish I could meet them both. It’s really be fun. I trust you to be a good owner to those beauties. Nice article here.

  6. Niki looks delightful, my wife has always wanted us to get a cat but we have a big boofhead of a dog, he is a great dane and we are scared he might crush the poor little thing. How hard is it to train a dog to live with a cat and visa Versa? Are there any specific breeds that do better with dogs as housemates? I would love your opinion as you clearly know a lot about these little critters

    1. Thank you for your comment Marvin . The priority, when presenting a new cat to a dog, is to help both pets feel relaxed in each other’s company.

      Make sure that the cat has a high place where he can take refuge if he feels uncomfortable, away from the dog.

      It does not matter the breed, neither the cat nor the dog.

  7. What a lovely life at home with Nikky and George:) I have one cat and two big dogs in my house, plus 20 cats in my garden. When I saw the picture of your dog and your cat, it made me jalouse because my dogs don’t get along with my cats. And this makes me really said. I’ve tried almost everything, but nothing worked. Do you some tips to give me?

    Thank you for this excellent post!

    1. Thank you for your comment Daniella. I have some tips, but you need patience

  8. Hello Carmen, I understand how iy feels to lose a cat. Before my first second cat Ivy, I had a tomcat who was all black and a little white around the tail. He was the fastest climber I have seen so far. At evenings, he would often play with my daughter and you’ll see them having gun. It got to a point he taught her yo climb trees because she was following his lead. One evening Light left the house on one of his regular stroll and that was the last of him. What a way to say good bye, till date my daughter still sometimes call our new cat (ivy) light.

    1. Thank you for your comment Dane. I’m sorry to hear about Light. I’m convinced your daughter is suffering. As I suffer for any loss.
      All the best for you, your new cat and your daughter.
      Carmen

  9. Hi there, from your description on the behavior of this cutie, he is certainly someone everyone would miss when he isn’t around. I have had my baby now since i got married, and its counting 7 years already. She have faced so many ailments and have came out strong. Blue loves playing with water, I don’t know why, maybe that’s why she has blue eyes and we named her blue. She isn’t someone I’ll want to miss a day in her life. One time she was sick my son said was going to stay at the vet over night because of her. I can’t imagine life without her.

    1. Thank you for your comment Chloe. I understand you when you say you can’t imagine life without Blue.

       Blue probably has something from the Van Turkish breed if he likes the  water. I also have a cat who likes water.

      All the best to you.

  10. Hi Carmen!

    Great story about Niki, it reminded me of my cat’s story. It seems like he really enjoyed his life. I have to admit I got a bit teary while reading it.

     But I wanted to know how can you take care of more than one pet? I think I couldn’t with more than just my cat, specially because my flat isn’t very big for another animal I think.

    I will probably check some of your other posts because I am a cat lover too!

    Best,

    Mariana

    1. Thanks for the comment Mariana. I started with a cat. Then throughout their lives they multiplied one at a time. I adopted a few dogs later. If you love, you can have more pets.

      All the best to you.

  11. Great picture of your cat in the washing machine!  My friends have two cats and they never fail to surprise me as to where they hide in the house!  Once, we couldn’t find one of the cats, and later found her in the laundry basket on top of the dryer!  They’re so content to just be left alone.  (This is why I’m debating getting a cat for my own kiddos.)  Your cats seem to have great personalities!  Do you think every cat is different in that regard?  If so, do you think it has anything to do with how they’re treated as kittens?  Thank you for sharing your cats with us!  

    1. Thank you for your comment. Cats are full of personality and are independent. But their personality is also influenced by the way they are treated. I recommend treating cats as an equal member of the family.

      All the best to you.

  12. I’m a big lover of cats, in fact I have two at home and its been up to 3 years that I’ve been living with them in my apartment, it can be funny how cats behave sometimes, they are really full of great adventure, lol. Cats are great companion that can help heal faster if sick, fix mood if disturbed, they are very good at put smiles on my face. Its really nice to read about Niki, its really interesting and nice to read bout him, I actually love the part that Niki is a neat cat and he learned how to use the box properly. Its fun reading through. I love this post.

    1. Thanks for the comment Jones. Cats are the joy of the house and your doctor at the same time. You know, cat therapy is done. I’m glad you liked my post.

      All the best to you

  13. Aww,why did this clean smart Niki left for Tom? Could the illness be an old age illness? So, sad he’s not part of your household again. I will love to have a pet like Nikki that can whirl away my boredom and feed itself whenever it is hungry without depending on anyone. I also like it when a cat and dog get along so easily. I also have an example in my household, where dog and birds get along. Sometimes, the bird helps the dog to remove insect from it body and he won’t quarry him for that. I love this Niki story and the lesson it passes. Thanks for sharing.
