Just when I thought I'd had enough, and all my tears were shed.
No promise left unbroken, there were no painful words unsaid.
You came along and showed me, how to leave it all behind.
You opened up my heart again. And then much to my surprise,
I found love, baby. Love in the Nick of time.
~ Bonnie Raitt
Nick was found outside as an older kitten. He was right at the crossroads. A few weeks older and he would have been considered too old, too wild, to become a family cat. We don't how well he was treated outside, and we suspect that not everyone was kind. Not every kitten can forget that. Luckily, Nick was young enough and gentle enough to be taken into a POA foster home where he was surrounded by love. Nick was quickly won over by gentle touches, good food, great toys..... Nick blossomed. Now Nick is ready for his forever home. Because he spent his first weeks outside without people, Nick may always be nervous in new situations, and he still hates to be picked up. But Nick adores being petted and he will lean against you and purr to let you know exactly how much he loves it. And there may be nothing that Nick likes better than a string toy. He will follow you pretty much anywhere for a chance to bat at a mouse on the wire or leap after a bird toy. So if you are looking for a young cat that needs a little reassurance, but can offer so much love and joy, we have someone who is ready to meet you.... right in the Nick of time.
