Facts about Leia

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Young
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Leia was born February 2016 (approx) rescued off the streets of Covina. Leia was born along with Luke in a busy mall parking lot and hid underneath a trash compactor. She kept warm from the conveyor on it 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, I 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 I've fostered this year.
Leia 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 will need a little work on that. 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 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.

The TNR Project is a volunteer operated group who practice TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) in the San Gabriel Valley. Each person who traps is independent and they are using their own money, time and gas to save the homeless cats & kittens in our local communities.

The TNR Project is always adding volunteers who want to learn to TNR in their neighborhoods and help others control the feral, stray & homeless cat populations. TNR has been proven to be the ONLY effective method to controlling the ever-mounting cat populations. We have saved 1000+ cats & kittens lives every year since 2015.

If you would like more information on TNR or learn how you can help your community cats, please visit: and fill out a contact us form. Save a stray, save a life! Thank you for rescuing!!

About The TNR Project

About Our Rescue Group...

The TNR Project believes in TNR which stands for Trap-Neuter-Return. We have volunteers who help neighborhoods learn how to trap safely, humanely & effectively to stem community cat growth & overpopulation. TNR has been proven to effectively control the numbers of unwanted kitties on the streets and keep cats out of the shelters.

Did You Know?
* Feral cats are almost 100% of the time euthanized immediately when entering a doesn't matter if they're kittens or cats.
* Only 2 out of 10 cats usually make it out of the shelters alive, which means 80% of cats entering shelters are also euthanized.
* TNR curbs these numbers before kittens are born creating a win/win for the cats, neighborhoods, rescuers and shelters.

Did You Know: Cats can be written off your taxes as natural pest control for your home or office? Don't use pesticides!

The TNR Project, as well as performing TNR weekly, pulls cats & kittens from the streets who can be saved & adopted. We believe these cats & kittens deserve a loving, forever home. Most of them have been discarded, abandoned and/or thrown away like a piece of trash!

We get into the trenches with these cats & kittens, rescue them, socialize them and give them a second chance at life. We perform true miracles from ground zero.
