Jason and I rescued Leo from a shelter in Naples, Florida on April 29, 2010.
Although my family had a few cats when we lived on the farm, and my older sister had a persian, which was not friendly, when I was growing up, I never had a cat that was really my pet.I’ve always had a love for dogs, that has always been my pet of choice. Jason on the other hand, loves cats. One day he saw a sign at the gas station near our house that read free kitties, but when he called they were all gone. This of course got the ball rolling in searching for a cat we could call our own.
It took a while to understand the mentality of a cat, how to coexist in the same space. Jason and I joke all the time that Leo is our dog, some of his habits and characteristics are not kitty related, they scream dog.
Jason picked a perfect cat for us. His personality is like no other cat I have ever been around.
It’s been a whirlwind of emotions and stressful at times as this kitty and I learned how to live with one another. With that said, over the last few years Leo and have developed a pretty special bond.
I love when he curls up on my lap purring his soothing loud purr, or head butts me so I will pet him or his comical meow when he wants something. Leo has definitely won over a very special place in my heart.
