Leo's Progress ...

Leo has been settling in rather nicely. He is truly a sweet kitty and we are happy to have gotten the chance to welcome him into our home. Since we must keep him away from the rest of the cats for a few more months, we have been keeping him downstairs in the holding cage with everything he needs until we get home from work and can bring him upstairs to rome around in the spare bedroom. This way, he can stretch his legs a bit and we can interact with him ... playing and giving him the attention he was so craving.

 Have a magickal weekend everyone!!!

Meet Sir Leo!

Happy Sunday everyone! We may have a new addition to our cat family and his name is Leo. One of many, he is a stray whom he have been feeding daily for about a month and a half now. 

He has been coming into the enclosed porch, which we have now turned into a catio, to eat on a nightly basis ... until last night. At around 1:15AM, hubby woke me up from my slumber to tell me that he had gotten Leo inside at last. Since we never allow our other cats to be exposed to any stray until they have been thoroughly examined by our vet at Eagle's Peak Animal Clinic, he is currently being held in our huge dog cage which fits a litter box, food, water, comfy blanket and even toys.

He is understandably scared, but very, very sweet! When hubby picked him up to bring him downstairs, he never even drew his claws, hissed, or tried to bite. He had a fresh wound above his right eye and so I cleaned it up with a cotton pad and some hydrogen peroxide. He also has a fairly large scab on the left side of his neck from what appears to have been a rather bad fight.  

We will get him into see our vet, weather permitting, this week. When I think of what this poor kitty must have been through, it makes me so sad and also relieved that we were finally able to rescue him from this winter's relentless bone-chilling cold temperatures and very harsh weather conditions. Now safe and sound in our home, here's to you, Leo. We pray you will check out fine and be a part of our family for a long, long time!
