Leonardo

This little frisky fella is Leonardo. He's definitely not a needy cat. He wouldn't mind if you work long hours as long as you keep his food and water bowl full and his litter box clean. He'll be delighted when you get home and might even want to snuggle with you! We believe Leonardo is around 9 months old. He currently weighs 7 pounds.  Please stop by the shelter to meet Mr. Leonardo!!
