Nika

Domestic Short Hair

 
Small  |  Female

St. Louis, MO

 

My name is Nika! I was a friendly cat living in a feral colony. My caretaker noticed I was crying in pain whenever I ate, so Stray Haven took me in and got me to a vet. Turns out that I had a severe throat infection, as well as stomatitis. I got all my teeth pulled to alleviate my stomatitis (except my three canines - one was already gone). That gave me some relief, but I still have some pain, so I get a subcutaneous steroid injection every few days when I'm hurting. These are easy to give and I take them pretty well. I eat my dry food just fine (many cats swallow it whole rather than chewing it) and prefer dry to wet food.

I am a very petite girl - only about 6 pounds. I'm a brown tabby with sad but sweet little eyes that my foster meowmy thinks are very unique and endearing. I am very outgoing and sweet and get along well with other kitties. Because my teeth and gums were so bad, the vets could not tell how old I am, but my foster meowmy thinks I'm probably only 2 or 3 years old because I am so playful. I also enjoy lap time! Please let a super sweet special needs kitty come home with you!
