Please contact Kate ( for more information about this pet.

My name is Leia. My first dad says I was named after a princess; my foster dad says, “No way!” I am a sassy red head. I like to play hard! I like to be loved on, but on my terms. When I first move in, I will probably take a few blood samples from you to make sure we are a good match. Please don’t be upset with me…. Patience works better.


I love wet food and occasionally like to stalk and eat bugs. I like to jump; this drives my foster dad CRAZY, but after two months I think he has given in….MOL (meow out loud). I am an indoor cat, but I will totally hang out on an enclosed porch with you and help catch bugs. If you choose to take me home, I pack light - one litter box and my favorite scratch post.  My foster dad loves me, but he travels all the time, and I really like to have quiet company.  It calms me down and makes me feel more comfortable and nicer.  Children and elderly folks on blood thinners are probably not the best match.

I sleep through the night and love to burrow under the covers next to you, but when that sun comes up, you better drag your sorry rump out of that bed and get busy with that food bowl!  I will cry loudly until you get it right. Did I mention I have a very very healthy meow box?  My foster dad said he would be happy to go over my “do’s” and “don’ts.” Please choose me and let me boss you around and run your life. XO

All Brother Wolf animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations before adoption (if species appropriate).
Application and counseling is required prior to all adoptions.

Individuals interested in adopting a puppy are STRONGLY encouraged to download and read this FREE ebook. Even if you've raised puppies in the past, this is an invaluable resource to help make your new addition successful!

Please note that visual breed identification of companion animals has been proven to be unreliable, so for most of our animals we provide a best guess at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our animals as an individual and do our best to describe and place pets based on personality not breed label.

About Brother Wolf Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue is known for their excellence in matching people with the best dog or cat that would suit their lifestyle. Today we are proud to have the largest NO-KILL shelter in Asheville. Brother Wolf Animal Rescue was established in 2006. We started off as a very small group of people, taking dogs and cats from gassing shelters in GA. We found wonderful homes for these animals but realized while we were saving these particular animals, we had a much bigger problem in our community that we needed to face. Perfectly healthy, highly adoptable animals in our community are being euthanized every day. Rescued pets are not broken or damaged goods. They are wonderful animals who have ended up homeless through no fault of their own.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our facility is located at 31 Glendale Avenue in Asheville, off Swannanoa River Rd, 1/2 mile from Lowe's. Open every day.

Our Adoption Process...

All adoptions will require a contract and discussions with one of our adoption counselors. Based on the needs of the particular animal, we reserve the right to require a home visit at the discretion of the adoption counselor. All our animals will be altered before adoption and up-to-date on standard vaccinations. We do collect an adoption fee.
