Meet Leo

Leo was found as a stray, on a main road and taken to a vet clinic by a good Samaritan.
His tail was broken and had become necrotic, so it needed to be amputated to save his life.
He had surgery on the 14th of December and is on a course of antibiotics.
We are still pending his vet costs however; he is going to need sponsorship to help cover his surgery.

Leo’s has been so through so much, after his tail amputation he had to be contained and in a recovery collar to prevent him licking or opening and infecting his wound.
He is such a bouncy happy kitten, so this was absolute torture for him.
He thoroughly enjoyed the moments of supervised collar off free play we were able to give him.

Leo has now had his stitches removed and his wound has healed very nicely.
Since then he has been unstoppable, he is bold and adventurous, his enthusiasm for life infectious.
He is hopping, bouncy and exploring every nook and cranny, he loves to pounce on his foster brother Kovu and they run around after each other like a couple of mad speedsters.

Leo is happiest when he can chase and play interactive toys with you but don’t let the adventurous spirit fool you, he is also a gentle soul that cherishes snuggly cuddles and nap times with you.
Although being such a climber, Leo is best suited to an indoor only home and any outdoor time should only happen in a supervised enclosure.
Leo really is such a floppy easy going kitten; he would make a great friend for children or other cats.

He has been has been treated for fleas/worms and is microchipped, desexed and vaccinated.
He is currently eating Ivory coat kitten dry food and Fancy feast wet food and is using breeder’s choice paper litter but he can be transitioned to whatever brand you prefer.
Edit: Scratch the fancy feast, doesn't seem to agree with his tummy.
He has been having a rice with tuna or chicken for dinner for the past few nights.

Leo is currently located in the Penrith area and he is now ready to find his forever home.


Leo has been in foster care since 14 December 2021, for 1 month
