Nick has struggled with health problems for his entire life and has grown up in a foster home, but is ready to find a home that is willing to care for him. Nick is over a year old now and loves dogs and gets along with other cats, however recommend him to an only-cat home as we still don't know what's truly causing his illness. Some of Nick's siblings and his mother have passed away due to FIP (feline infectious peritonitis), so we can only assume this is what Nick has as well. His symptoms appear every once in a while such as watery eyes and weight loss. When in remission, Nick is a very robust boy and is active and affectionate. Nick sneezes a lot and produces mucus from his nose. He almost always has watery/infected eyes, which lead to upper respiratory infection. He is not fully litter trained and will need to be worked with to reacclimate to a litter box in his environment.
His foster home cannot keep him forever and the cost of his vet care is too much for our small rescue to sustain for much longer. Any adopter interested in Nick must understand he needs extensive vet care. His condition is being managed right now, but he may not live a full life of a healthy cat. He typically visits the vet about once a month/every other month and he has taken a few trips to the emergency vet when his symptoms intensified. We're looking for a forever home for him as long as his "forever" may be. Please consider adopting Nick!
