Nicky


Nicky is the youngest of the Good Cats, having been born on October 23, 2000.  His mother was a stray cat, who was being cared for by some friends of the Mom and Dad.  This friend knew that the Dad wanted to adopt a black cat and called them after the mother cat, called Mow-Mow, brought her kittens to the house.  The Dad had taken care of a stray black cat named Gato when he was in college, but didn't know enough about cats at the time to take really good care of him.  He had to help Gato to the Bridge and then told himself that if he ever had the chance to take care of another black cat, he would do a much better job of it.  Nicky came along just at the right time.  The Mom and Dad had moved into a larger house and had room for another cat.  Nicky moved right in as soon as he was old enough.  Right away, he decided that he wanted to be the big mancat around, but Kelly had other ideas.  Kelly is still the alpha cat, so Nicky had to find another job.  Caitie is the hunter and Lizzie is the calm cat, so Nicky became the Mom's guard.  He keeps a close eye on her and will hiss at anyone he doesn't approve of coming near her.  When the doorbell rings, he growls, just in case it is an intruder with evil intentions.  Nicky loves to play with toy mousies and puts them in his food or water bowl for safe keeping when he is through playing.  Nicky also likes to play fetch, sometimes.  Nicky really hates going to the vet.  He howls all the way there and all the way back.  If another cat has been to the vet, Nicky hisses at them, even Kelly.

                                          Nicky's job is to be on guard.
                                          Whenever the Mom is in the yard.
                                                    He growls at the doorbell
                                                    And hisses at vet smell.
                                          For the sake of the Mom he is always on guard.

"Nicky loves to play with toy mousies and puts them in his food or water bowl for safe keeping when he is through playing." How funny! And then he is taking them back to continue playing with the food around it? :-)
And the story about the vet, I know that just to well. Pumuckl is exactly the same.

Nicky is very brave to be guarding his Mommie from strangers ~ we hide under beds instead!

Moki said...

Nicky does sound like a very brave boy indeed. Not only does he guard his mommie, but he is willing to take on Kelly...hehe

We feel as though we know Nicky! Mom has an office kitty named Feather and she is very much like Nicky. She growls at strangers. Gandalf's brother BooBoo does the toys in the water bowl thing. Yeah, we totally don't get that.
