Leo is a strapping charcoal gray tom cat with amber eyes who’s looking for a comfy lap to curl up in. He seems aptly named, as he’s almost big enough to be a small lion. This confident man will butt his head against you and purr while leaning up against you. Leo is quite people oriented as well as calm and super affectionate. You can visit this charming guy in C-18 in Cat Room 2.
Adoption fees for cats and kittens are typically $95, which includes a basic wellness exam, spay or neuter surgery, microchip implantation, rabies and other vaccinations, and start off with one month of free pet insurance. The adoption fee for a second cat is just $50 when adopting two together.
Thanks to our sponsors, new owners of each adopted featured pet will receive a complimentary first wellness visit from Park Vet Hospital, a pet pillow from Sew Fine II, a $25 gift card to Rockwood Furniture and a free day of boarding at Sunny Acres Pet Resort.
