Facts about Nika

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Brown Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 2014-250
  • Hair: Short
My name is Nika! I was a friendly cat living in a feral colony. My caretaker noticed I was crying in pain whenever I ate, so Stray Haven took me in and got me to a vet. Turns out that I had a severe throat infection, as well as stomatitis. I got all my teeth pulled to alleviate my stomatitis. That gave me some relief, but I still have some pain now and again, so I get a subcutaneous steroid injection when I'm hurting. This can be given as often as every three days, but I have not needed one in several weeks. These are easy to give and I take them pretty well. I eat my dry food just fine (many cats swallow it whole rather than chewing it) and prefer dry food to wet food.

I am a very petite girl - only about 6 pounds. I'm a brown tabby with sad but sweet little eyes that my foster meowmy thinks are very unique and endearing. I am very outgoing and sweet and get along well with other kitties. I purr up a storm and LOVE lap time! Because my teeth and gums were so bad, the vets could not tell how old I am, but my foster meowmy thinks I'm probably only 2 or 3 years old because I am so playful. Please let a super sweet special needs kitty come home with you!

About Stray Haven Feline Rescue Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a non-profit feline foster-based rescue located in St. Louis County and St. Charles County.

We specialize in cats and kittens. We rescue our babies from local high-kill shelters and other rescue agencies. We do ask for a donation for any feline we rescue to offset some of their vetting costs. We also assist with local TNR efforts.

All of our kitties have been spayed/neutered, FIV/FeLV tested, microchipped, given age-appropriate vaccines, de-wormed, and flea treated. Our kitties are located in loving foster homes waiting for you to adopt them. We do have a few kitties at located at the cat adoption center at the Petco at Mackenzie Pointe, the Telegraph Petco, and the Florissant PetSmart.

Find us on Facebook! Our weekly adoption events, available kitties, informative articles, and happy ending stories are posted there regularly.
