indoors and outdoors
Arrival Story: Ex-husband called me and asked if I would take Leroy and his brother Leon, or he would have to take them to the animal shelter (not a no kill shelter). I did and so glad I did because Leroy is awesome.
Bio: We used to rent a house, while searching for another one to buy; it was on a semi-busy street (cars would fly down the street). Leon, Leroy's brother was hit by a car about 8 months after we got them. Leroy missed him so much he went looking for him, needless to say, I was very worried about him. He came back after 2 days and the minute he got in the house he started talking to me (Leroy never talks), I quess about his search. He never left again after that day and we moved to a much nicer, safer neighborhood not on a busy street. Leroy is one of the most loving, trusting cats I've ever known. He's one of the few cats I've known that really expresses fondness or love in is eyes when he's looking at me.
Hero Leroy: I was out doing some gardening and the neighbors boxer went under the fence (from hole she had dug) and came into the yard (very nice boxer, non-threatening). Leroy happened to be out with me and when he saw the boxer come toward me he tore after it, boxer got the heck out of the yard, fast. My Hero! Gotta love that!
