Nico is the most laid-back cat at 4 Boys and a Lady. He was adopted last summer as the second cat of the household. He is two years old now. Maggie bullies him sometimes, possibly because he is so calm about everything. Nico loves cat company and is always the first to accept any newcomer to the house. He and Virgil are fast friends, he and Nermal get along, though they don't seem to be close, and he has accepted Westley as part of the family. He and Maggie even share a lap or a bed occasionally. An odd thing happened last winter. The cats had all made themselves comfortable in the living room, Nermal on the low perch, Nico on the high perch, Maggie near the scratching post and Virgil wandering around. Virgil caught sight of Nermal's tail and decided to play with it. Nermal wasn't in the mood and growled a bit. Virgil ignored the warning and Nermal growled louder and swatted Virgil and even nipped at him. Maggie came flying across the room and whapped Nermal. Most unusually for him, Nico jumped down and chased Maggie away from Nermal. It looked like Maggie was protecting Virgil, who was just a little kitten at the time, but what was Nico up to? Was he trying to stop a fight breaking out between Maggie and Nermal, or did he see a chance to get back at Maggie for picking on him, while her attention was on Nermal? Only Nico knows for sure.
Nico doesn't like to get involved.
He watches the others get their problems solved.
He sits and observes.
Not much gets on his nerves.
He just doesn't want to get involved.
