Nikita was born back in 2006 and came to live with me when she was about 7 weeks old. She was the runt of the litter and sickly, with gooey eyes, ear mites and worms. Her mom was a stray cat who was a tortoise shell coloring who had been taken in by a friend of a friend. The whole litter was orange except for one who was a tortoise shell. I went to "look" at this kittens with very unclear intentions but once I arrived Nikita promptly sat on my lap and refused to leave, so I was chosen. When she came to live with me she clearly hadn't had enough time with her mom-cat as I had to teach her some basic cats stuff, including how to use a litter box. :s

She was taken under the wing of her 2 older sister-cats and learned a lot from them also. Her personality seems to be a mirror image of Peebs, my calico, who passed away the following year in 2007,
|Nikita and Peebs|
It's so strange that I've since lost both her older sisters... Peebs and Jewelen have both passed so Nikita is the only one left from that time. She bring me so much joy with her funny little neurotic ways. It's impossible to imagine not having her in my life.
I love you my sweetest girl xo
