The Fuzzy Pet Foundation, a Southland animal rescue group, is asking for the public's help in finding a forever home for a one-eyed cat named Nikki just in time for the holidays.
The organization rescued Nikki last month when she was found abandoned in the high desert with a horrible injury to her eye and a broken tail. Her eye was so badly infected, that the vet had to remove it to save her life, according to Sheila Choi, CEO of the Fuzzy Pet Foundation.
The two-year-old Himalayan cat is now in good health, and awaiting a loving, permanent home, Choi said.
“Nikki has gone through so much pain and suffering in the past, and now she deserves nothing but the very best,” Choi said.
Nikki, who is said to have a gentle and affectionate temperament, enjoys sitting on laps and loves to follow people around the house.

Potential owners can also visit Nikki at the VCA Lakewood Animal Hospital10701 South St. in Cerritos, on Wednesday, Dec. 12 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
