Nikky passed away on Wednesday, December 9, 2009. He was 18 years andd 4 months old. He was the most gentle cat. He loved to give kitty kisses on your lips. Never ever would hurt anyone or anything. Never used his claws. So so sweet. My son calls him the best cat in the world. After he passed, we came home from the vet and my son through tears said "we have to make a Nikky book" and we did.....a whole photo album dedicated to the one and only Nikky. His nicknames were Nikkers, Nickles, Niknik, Nicholas........Nikkers was the one we used most of the time. He is dearly and greatly missed. All my life having cats and dogs, mostly cats......he was the very first I had until the very end......and it hurt like hell. Still does......just not as bad. I remember to good times with him. I love him so. R.I.P. Nikky!
