Facts about Leia

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Leia was born February 2016 (approx) and was rescued off the streets of Covina. Leia was born along with her brother Luke in a busy mall parking lot and hid underneath a trash compactor. She kept warm from the generator and they felt safe. An employee at the mall saw them and knew that we were working with local feeders to clean up the parking lot. She started feeding these two and socializing them at a young age. She contacted us and when we couldn't find a foster due to everyone being full halfway into kitten season, one of our TNR members stepped up and took them. Between the traffic, the homeless drunks messing with the cats, the dumpsters for extra food, the cold and the coyotes, they wouldn't last long. They have been some of the most loving,playful, smart kittens we've fostered this year.

Leia is high-energy! She loves to chase the laser toy and waits for the sun in the morning to hit the wall just right with a reflection for her to pounce on. She loves to get right up next to you on the couch or when you sit down for a chat. She likes to be held, but only when she's tired from playing. She will sit on your lap however, all day. She travels great in a carrier and feels safe in it. She greets new people pretty quickly as long as she feels safe with you and she's playing with them in no time. Cookies will get you everywhere with her and she loves her sisal scratch post. She is a confident little thing and will stay on the smaller side (aside from her elephant sized brother!) Leia is a keeper and one you will fall in love with.

About The TNR Project

About Our Rescue Group...

The TNR Project humanely & successfully performs TNR which stands for Trap-Neuter-Return. We are a 100% grassroots community movement of volunteers. TNR has been proven to stem community cat growth & overpopulation by controlling the numbers of unwanted cats & kittens on the streets and keep them out of the shelters. We TNR 1000+ cats & kittens every year since 2015. We have classes with FixNation & Alley Cat Allies 3-4x a year to help train people who want to make a difference in their community and to the felines they see. All of the cats & kittens you see here on our site have been born on the streets, abandoned, left to die or worse. They were all community street cats before we stepped in to save them. We do not pull from shelters. We believe that by staying on the streets which is Ground Zero, we will make the difference people are so desperately hoping for....No-Kill Shelters. One shelter we work with experienced a 40% intake decline of cats after we started working their communities. What we prevent from being born on the streets doesn't end up in shelters, being surrendered, being abandoned, clogging the rescues or breeding several times a year with unwanted kittens. We want cats & kittens currently in rescues & shelters to have MORE time available to them to get into a great home...not euthanasia!
We walk the talk and do good where it's needed...on the streets! If you would like more information on TNR or learn how you can help your community cats, please visit: www.thetnrproject.org and fill out a contact us/join us form. Save a stray, save a life! Thank you for rescuing!!

FACT: A mama cat can go into heat again when kittens are 4 weeks old
FACT: A kitten is of breeding age at 16 weeks old (4 months)
FACT: A female cat will go into heat every 2 weeks until mated
FACT: Once pregnant, a female cat will have that litter in 2 months (64 day gestation)
FACT: Once a male is neutered, it significantly decreases the yowling, spraying, fighting & wandering
FACT: Feral cats & kittens don't stand a chance at the shelters due to under-funding, lack of staff and fosters...they are almost 100% of the time euthanized
FACT: Only 2 out of 10 cats usually make it out of the shelters alive, which means 80% of cats entering shelters are euthanized...those are the social ones.
FACT: Black cats are 80% less likely to be adopted due to superstition? Black cats have some of the most intelligent, social personalities around!

DID YOU KNOW: Cats can be written off your taxes as natural pest control for your home or office? Don't use pesticides!
DID YOU KNOW: You can de-flea your property by using beneficial nematodes which are the natural predator to fleas?
DID YOU KNOW: Cats not only take care of rats & insects, they thwart gophers and squirrels?
DID YOU KNOW: It's not always cats who are pooping in your yard? Can you tell the difference between skunk, opossum, raccoon, coyote, dog and cat feces?.
