Leela is one of our mature cats, about 8 years old.  She came to us with a sister and brother from an elderly owner who hated to give them up but had to go to assisted living.  Leela went through a low period after surrender.  She withdrew, even forgetting to groom herself initially.  She is quite sensitive as noted when she sat facing the back wall of her condo when we placed her in Petco.  Once she got in trouble for trying to get onto the kitchen counter to get shrimp thawing.  She went into her room and sat facing the wall.  (Yes, her foster should have known better than to leave shrimp out.)   Leela has blossomed since being in foster just a few weeks. She now climbs on her foster‘s lap at every opportunity to get scratched on her head and chin.  She must have Siamese in her because she is a talker.  She likes to play with aluminum crunch balls, and she actually chases her tail for fun.  Leela is blind in one eye.  We think it was from early in life.  She has one gold eye and one blue eye.  She is solid black. She deals well with other cats.  She has a calm approach to a little fussy resident cat at her foster’s house.  She acts like a wise older matron who just does her thing and knows that all will be well if she just doesn’t react.  Leela’s affectionate nature would make her a good choice for someone looking for a lap cat.   If interested in adopting Leela, please fill out an application at

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a pet from us we first require an adoption application filled out. Once the application is submitted one of our adoption counselors will contact you to set up a formal meet and greet. If the decision is made that it is a good fit between you and the pet we will then set up a home visit. Often times the meet and greet and home visit can be done at the same time for your convenience.
Our adoption fee for dogs is $150.00. This covers our costs for vet services. When adopting a pet from us the pet will be spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, micro chipped and tested for internal parasites and other disease such as heart-worms and FeLuke and FIV. We accept the adoption fee and a formal adoption contract when the pet is turned over to you. Should the pet not work out in your home or should a life changing event happen and you are no longer able to keep the pet we ask that the pet be returned to us or that we are notified of new ownership. We will always take our pets back, however, the fee is non refundable.
