Hi! My name is Nikolai!

I was brought into a shelter as a stray and then transferred to rescue to help me find my forever home!

Fun Fact about me! I am duper active and I love to explore. I adore being in the sun too.

So a little bit about me, I'm a vegetarian and I love the outdoors. Having a safe indoor enclosure is an option but if you are willing to build an appropriate and safe enclosure outside, I will thrive there too! The rescue has all the information you will need to set either one up for me.

I can live more than 50 years if I have a lean, high-fiber diet and a low-stress environment with the right temps and light. Bringing me into your family is a lifelong commitment, for both of us!

I’m bashful, shy, introverted, timid, and coy but I like to chill with my people as well. You can learn more about my needs here >

If you think we may be a good match, or you would like to get to know me better, please click the Adoption Application button below and you will be contacted to set up a date!

PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT SHIP OUR ANIMALS. We can only accept applications from interested parties who are in or near San Diego County, California at this time.
