He has never been socialized with cats or dogs and there’s no records of him ever biting another animal or person. Behavior: Nike will meow a lot for attention and will meow consistently during car rides. You will struggle with Nike when attempting to give him a bath or trim his nails but he enjoys being brushed, being picked up, being placed in a carrier and isn’t bothered when being disturbed while sleeping. For a New Family to Know: Nike is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, confident, independent, talkative and somewhat fearful in new environments.
