Orange & White Tabby
To lay on you and be petted for hours.
Does not like you to stop petting!
He's to busy taking care of the babies to play much, but he does like the gray mice.
Favorite Nap Spot:
He likes the back of the sofa and also the window perch when the window is open in good weather.
He'll eat anything.
I'm not sure yet.
Leo was dumped at the humane society by his family. I don't know why because he is the sweetest boy! He was also due to be euthanized and was picked up at the shelter just in time. However, he also ended up living in the basement of the cat hoarder and became very sick. The hoarder was evicted and I received an emergency email for foster homes. Since it was in my area, I offered my help, but I had never done any fostering previously. I was told that there were 5 kittens that no one would take because they were sick with colds, and I said I would take them. The next day I was to pick up the 5 kittens, they called and said an adult cat was also coming down with a cold and asked me to take him. I said okay and that's how I came to get Leo. I met the lady that was helping get 60 cats into foster homes and picked up the 6. I took them immediately to the vet because they looked so sick. Leo was so skinny I could feel every bone in his body, he had bare spots where he didn't have any fur and his fur was very stiff and felt dead. His eyes continually run and I still haven't found anything to help this.
Leo is a wonderful boy and I don't know what I would have done without him. He has taken over mothering the 5 kittens that I rescued and has done a great job. They all love him too. Two of the kittens, Bella and Mia are with my resident cats, we lost Sparky to FIP and I still have his two sisters isolated but left Leo with them to take care of them. He's a really good boy and we've decided to keep
him and all the kittens! What loves!
We have since lost the second kitten China doll, Sparky's littermate...we still have the third from the litter DaBrat and so far she has not developed FIP. They think the virus was passed to them from their mother during the birthing process.
