So far as I can tell, Nikki has been adopted or rescued no fewer than five times.
1) Our old tenant picked him up on the street when he was a kitten.
2)When she moved out she left him with us.
3) One night a student met him on the street and “rescued” him. He’d offed his collar, and she couldn’t feel his chip. After trying to re-home him, she put him out on the street near where she lived.
And we heard nothing for three years.
4) In September, we got a call from LONG BEACH that someone had him. Presumably someone took him off the street in Berkeley, and ended up leaving him in Long Beach.
5) The people who contacted us about him had rescued him from the street.
Well, he is pretty cute.
Since he’s been home he’s lost four collars – it would be five, but we found one in the yard.
We’ve had three sets of people phone us:
some nice kids around the corner called because he turned up in their apartment – they’d had the door open and he’d just come in;
our friend about the corner called because he was following her home and she worried about him maybe getting lost;
some nice kids called us because it was 11 a night and he’d followed them for two blocks and they didn’t know what else to do.
Some nice people brought him home last night and rang the bell because they’d stopped to pat him and then he was following them off down the block.
it is possible that the boy is toooooo friendly.
