World, meet Leo, a loveable, huggable, soft, fabulous kitty who has discerning taste in food. Well, let me be more clear: Leo has to eat a special diet, otherwise he gets urinary blockages. Everyone has food sensitivities these days and, as far as special needs go, that’s it! Easy peasy, right? (Assuming he stays on his diet, otherwise it’s difficult peasy, you know what I mean?)
Leo has quite the story, too. He originally came from a pet store where he was brought into a home where the other animals picked on him. His owner then brought him to work where he made his home until the shop closed down. He then went to another person’s house who wasn’t able to keep up with his special diet, so he went to another home. Unfortunately, that person also didn’t keep up with his needs and, through all this, Leo has ended up at the ER several times and, possibly due to his earlier experiences, doesn’t get on well with other cats. He doesn’t have much experience with dogs, though, so with some patience he may be able to get on well with one.
What Leo needs is a long-term, stable home with a chef that’s willing to meet his culinary requirements. As long as he stays on his diet, he always pees inside the box, but if, at some time he steps outside the box, his guardian will need to take him to the doctor to minimize his discomfort.
If you think you can meet Leo’s needs (we already know he can meet yours because he’s just that great), you can apply to meet him via his Petfinder.com profile. He’s currently being fostered privately in Illinois by a friend of mine that I met through Feral Fixers and Cat Guardians. So, get over there and have a look. Don’t let this little guy get away!
