For a New Family to Know
Leo was kept as an indoor only cat. He used to follow his owner around the house when she was home. His favorite activity was to sun bathe in the kitchen. His owner says that he “believes hes a dog.” He plays fetch with balls, string toys. and his owners makeup sponges. He likes to drink out of the toilet bowl. He also likes to play with water while his owner is showering. He sleeps in the kitchen. He eats wet fancy feast food twice a day. His owner says that he’ll only eat fancy feast pate, but that he doesn’t like sea food. He uses an uncovered litter box with clumping litter. He has a scratching post made out of cardboard.
Upon intake, Leo was head butting his carrier and purring. He stepped out of his carrier when I opened the flap, and walked into my hand to be pet. He allowed me to collar him and take a photo of him. Inside his kennel, he was purring and head butting the door.
