About Nikita: I don’t look it, but I’m 19 years old. I came to my humans in Portland, Oregon, the day after Christmas, 1993. I am named in honor of St. Nicholas. I was about 9 months old at the time. I begged for admittance at the back door. My first meal was leftover turkey. I have moved four times, including a cross-country flight from Portland to Washington six years ago, under my papa’s seat. Until I moved here, I was a celebrated huntress, now I am a retired cat. I have two sisters, ocicats, Kisa and Mischa. I have one annoying little brother, Boris, also an ocicat. I am a very alert and pleasant member of the family, and I love to listen to music while my mom cuddles me. I have a very loud voice. I love Sit-A-Pet sitters, especially Kathleen.
