Nico and Mia
My British Shorthair, Nico, was a rescue cat from a horrible pet shop. Nico was already 6 months old and had grown up alone in a small cage before we took him. He was shy at first, but has since grown up to be the most loving and sociable cat I've ever known. He is a very big boy, but a gentle giant.
He has never hissed, bitten or scratched a single person in the now 4 years we've had him. He gets along with both cats and dogs, and so far every human he's met. He is brave and loving, and even likes to meow back at you when you speak to him.
He loves to be petted and snuggled, and is content to stay in your lap for as long as you'll let him. Nico is the best cat I've ever owned. He is also the big brother to our newest addition, a little Ocicat/tabby mix kitten named Mia.
