UPDATE: SEP 20, 2014:
Nika has come a long way since when she first arrived. She will now come out to inspect and calmly socialize with visitors - even the flashing camera didn't seem to intimidate her. It certainly seems that she is ready to find her own home: a calm home with other cats would likely be ideal.

Nika is a large female Russian Blue or perhaps a Chartreux. She and four of her friends are the only survivors of a horrific hoarding situation involving over 90 cats. She is extremely shy, more so than all the others. The staff is working patiently with Nika to try to let her know that people can be kind. She spends most of the day hiding in her various cubbies, but we have great hopes that Nika will someday find her special person and will discover how wonderful life can be.
