Hi everyone, my name is Leila. I am very sweet-natured and looking for my forever family. Everyone I have met at the Feral Cat Foundation has been so great to me. I was rescued as a stray and was supposed to be spayed and put back at my colony, where I was pretty happy, but then something happened. While I was being spayed I suffered mild brain damage which makes my head and body sway a bit when I'm sitting or walking. This doesn't get in my way though and I can do everything I used to do. It hasn't affected my mental abilities and I always use my litterbox. Foster mom says I am the most playful cat she has ever had. I love furry toys and will toss them up in the air. Sometimes I even talk to them in my silly cat voice. I also like to undo paper towels on the roll and play with it. Foster mom says no picture will ever do me justice. She thinks I am much prettier in person and I have the softest coat of any cat.
When I was first with my foster mom I would hiss a little when she got too close or moved too fast. But now I am used to it so when she pets and picks me up I just melt in her hands. I recently went to adoptions and really loved all the attention I was getting. Foster mom thinks I will adjust quickly in a new home and will get along, maybe even bond with another cat.
I am incredibly sweet and just want to be loved forever. I hope I don't have to wait a long time until someone wants me. Once you get to know me, you will never want to let me go. Foster mom says she is really going to miss me when I am gone. She can give you some tips on bringing me into your home.
If you think I would make a good match for your family or just you, contact my foster mom at (510-657-3709)
