Facts about Niles

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Gray Or Blue
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 89824
  • Hair: Short
Niles is an extremely handsome gentleman. He is big for his age and will probably grow to a considerable size. He is more reserved than his siblings. He was born and has been outside his whole short life. He has adapted great to indoor living but needs a little more time to get used to people. He purrs when pet but you usually need to approach him. He does not like being held or picked up but will tolerate it. He is gentle and quiet. He does love to wrestle with his siblings and he loves wand toys and batting cat balls all around the house. With a little time I think he will blossom with a family of his own. He is leery of new cats and will growl but gets used to them within a week if they are friendly to him. He is best suited to a quiet or semi quiet home. Kids are okay if they are gentle and calm around him. Niles would love to be adopted with a sibling but will be ok in a home with other friendly kitties. He may be adopted alone as long as his new family dedicates some time everyday to interact and play with him

About Nike Animal Rescue Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

The Nike Animal Rescue Foundation (NARF) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization founded in 1985 in San Jose, California. NARF is dedicated to protecting dogs and cats. We strive to eliminate animal overpopulation through spay and neuter programs and public education. Our volunteers rescue and shelter cats and dogs in need. We provide medical care and locate quality, permanent homes for these animals. We are also a NO KILL shelter. The animals are fostered in our volunteer’s home; allowing us to give adopters a more complete background about their personality and how they get along with other animals, children, etc.

Our Adoption Process...

First, decide on the kind of dog or cat you want (large, small, active, older, puppy, kitten, long hair, short hair, etc.) and find a few pets that fit your criteria on our web site.

Then either contact the foster home directly or visit us at our weekly pet fairs.

Next a NARF representative will conduct an interview to make sure that the pet of your choice is a good match.

The donation for dogs ranges from $200 – $300, and $120 for cats. This donation covers the cost of spaying or neutering, vaccinations, and microchipping. In some cases, a training contract may be required for our dogs with an additional deposit.
