Description: Neika has a white underside and a swirled orange and white pattern along her sides.
Personality: Neika is an happy, intelligent and somewhat cautious feline, holding back until she feels all is okay. Neika can be spunky and is known to put a paw out when someone passes by to draw attention to herself. Neika is a love bug and enjoys snuggling, rubbing noses, and being held. She would probably thrive best in a calm, quiet environment.
She is used to different noises, e.g. vacuum cleaner, washer, BBC news, etc., so while it may take a few days for her to acclimate in a new environment, it certainly should not take long for her to thrive. She is a great cat that is easily corrected with a "no" when needed. A simple blow of wind in the face is usually sufficient too. She's been taught not to scratch, bite (except for the occasional "love bite"), or put out her claws (easily done by gently rubbing her paws).
Animal History: Neika was found living among a group of strays in an abandoned barn in early July 2012. Since her rescue, Neika has been residing with her foster family along with two additional cats and a large dog.
