About him

Nikki was bred in the Cherie-Finese cattery when his mother Sunet was already 10 years old. He was kept as stud, but before his turning to stud work (which he terribly enjoys!), he joined the TV cast in Cape Town for Nestle Gourmet TVC in 2006. Nikki is a very good actor, but alas, his genes are more important and he was destined to play a vital role in the Chinchilla Longhair breeding program. 
Nikki already sired many top show winners, including Supreme Premier Cherie-Finesse Jean Paul.

Below are some extracts out of the video he made for Nestle Gourmet in 2006. In the video Nikki features in the opening scenes: the cat that enjoys the bed and the cat that jumps on the chair. Other cats in the cast were Sp Pr Finesse Thomas O'Mally (running up the stairs), Sp Ch Cherie Engeltjie (walking with lady and tail upright) and Sp Pr Cherie-Finesse Angelo (eating, licking lips).
