; Milo rescued Niko from a shelter after he had arrived there clearly having had his tail amputated at home and left untreated. Although we were able to get the infection under control, and he then had surgery to properly dock the tail and stop the pain, he would continue to go after himself. It is not known if he was still doing so because he still had some lingering pain, if he was doing it out of habit, or if perhaps it it was even something that he did from anxiety and the reason that his original family tried to remove his tail. ;
In any event, what we DO know is that since being transferred up to the sanctuary, the imaginary tail chasing has stopped! We have weaned him off of all medications, and he is doing just wonderfully well! We all love Niko and feel that it is possible that being in the country could be the difference for him and that the city may have been too much and causing stress, but we will be taking him on a trip to town to see how he feels and if he displays the behavior, as we have only seen it once in the 8mo that he has been with us.
; If you have a country home and are looking for a very sweet, responsive and wonderful companion, please send questionnaires to firstname.lastname@example.org , and if you live in a less rural area but are interested in him, please do let us know and we can plan his field trip to town sooner than later!
