Facts about Nikiya (aka Nikki)

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 7318S2
  • Hair: Short
Found on a construction site in Astoria with her feral mom, Nikiya is loving her new indoor life! She is delightfully orange, sweet and sassy.

Nikki is a beautiful orange tabby who has come a long way in socializing. She is VERY friendly towards people now - follows her fosterer all over the apartment looking for attention, can be pet readily, and LOVES other cats as well. She has to be at your feet watching you in the kitchen, and she purrs when you speak to her.

She is very good-natured, non-aggressive, and ready for her forever home. She loves hanging out with her special people and cats. In short, she is AWESOME.

Nikki absolutely needs to go with another cat. She is bonded with Sammy, but she would get along well with any cat. She runs all over the place, very playful and active.

Nikiya is FIV and FeLV negative, spayed, and up-to-date on shots.

About KittyKind

About Our Rescue Group...

KittyKind is a New York City not-for-profit, no-kill, all-volunteer cat rescue and adoption group. All of us at KittyKind have opened our hearts and homes — and emptied our pockets — to save thousands of cats from neglect or abuse. Every cat we rescue is given food, shelter, medical care, a safe place to lay his or her head and most importantly of all, a reason to purr. We do not believe in rescuing a cat or kitten only to euthanize it if it has a broken leg or needs extended nursing care. We never give up if there is a chance of saving them. We take responsibility for each and every life we save and if a cat or kitten is unadoptable, they have a home with us for life.
We believe that animals are not property to be discarded, disposed of, or killed just for the crime of being homeless or unwanted. We believe that people should be friends, caretakers and protectors of animals. We believe that we must take responsibility for the life of every animal we rescue who through no fault of their own, is abandoned, sick, disabled, old or unable to care for themselves. We are dedicated to relieving their suffering, providing food, shelter, medical care and comfort until we can place them in a safe and loving home.

Our Adoption Process...

All cats and kittens are vaccinated and tested for FELV (feline leukemia) and FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), and if old enough, are neutered or spayed.
We will ask you some questions about your home and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Adopting a pet is a long-term commitment. We ask you to sign the KittyKind Adoption Agreement.
We will always take a cat back FOR ANY REASON. We will also work with you to place her in another good home if (after a period of adjustment) the adoption doesn't work out.
We do ask for a $125 adoption fee to help cover some of our food and veterinary expenses. For certain purebred cats (Siamese, Persian, Maine Coon, etc.), we request a $150 - $300 adoption fee.
