LEO would thrive in a home where her human is home most of the time and where the atmosphere tends to be quiet and reserved with minimal activity as LEO tends to frighten easily and will need some time alone before she even thinks about trusting another human again .
Unfortunately, LEO was confiscated from a terrible hoarding situation. As a result, her purrsonality is shy, skittish, and nervous on most occasions. She has difficulty trusting her human at first but, once she is given her ""alone"" space and once she begins to sense that she isn't going anywhere, LEO will allow you to pick her up, hold her, and rub her head.
LEO desperately wants to be a lap cat but was never given the time she deserved with human interaction and, as a result, she really tends to keep to herself.
LEO has lived with other cats but dogs are unknown.
Are you an experienced cat human who has tons of patience and doesn't seem to mind not having your new furbaby on your lap right away? Then, please consider giving LEO the love, time, and home that she truly deserves.
