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 www.sapamo.org.
