Black and White
Leo is our very distinguished looking 3yr old chap.
He is quite a timid boy, with little confidence around people but he is improving every day. He spends most of his time tucked in his bed or on his cat tower. He was very avoidant of all human contact when he first arrived and would growl and hiss when your hand would come near. However, the staff and volunteers have spent time sitting near and talking to him, and once you have offered your hand for him to sniff, he is now happy to receive strokes and chin rubs at his own pace. Leo will benefit from you taking the time to sit near him and talk to him, allowing him to come to you when he is ready.
Leo does not enjoy being handled or picked up and staff have been using towels and blankets to make these situations less stressful for him, along with plenty of teats which he is happy to accept afterwards! As Leo is a long-haired cat, he will need to get used to being groomed regularly and his introduction to this will need to be taken very slowly to avoid stressing him out.
Although Leo will need you to take things slowly at his pace, he is worth the time and effort, as the staff have seen him come on so much, now he comes out to seek attention and fusses. He does not play with toys at all but this may change when he is in the home and comfortable in his environment. Leo is able to use a cat flap and his litter tray.
Leo is looking for a quiet, adult only home where he would be the only pet.
