I realized I haven’t introduced you all to my fancy feline Leo! People call me a crazy cat lady but, I know what I am and I’m PROUD to be!
It’s funny though, I didn’t use to be a lover of cats. Actually most people would say I used to hate cats so here is the story about how my best friend came into my life.
One day in high school my mom saw a mouse in my house and if you know my mother you know that, that mouse was not going to be in the house a second longer. So she did some research and found that one of the best ways to get rid of mice is to adopt their predictor…a cat.
So a couple days go by and then we find a family that needed to get rid of a litter of kittens. Me being the animal lover and crazy person that I am, I wanted the most energetic kitten. I saw Leo and I know he was the one!
Now that you have a bit of background about how I got Leo, I think it’s time to learn a little about him. He is now 6 years old and the light of my life. His birthday is close to Halloween so he wears a new costume every year. Photos of his costumes will be put in a different post, so stay tuned!
Leo’s everyday life doesn’t consist of what “normal” cats do. Leo is an attention seeker even at night so when 4am rolls around he is wide awake and ready for everyone else to wake up…aka to feed him.
His favorite hobbies include:
Basking in the sun
Sitting on my lap when I’m trying to do work
Sitting in the center of the room so everyone can look at him
Playing with his catnip filled olive toy
Scooping his food out of his bowl because I think, he thinks he has fingers
Putting his head under a lecking sink even though he hates water.
Leo has made such a large impact on my life and really has changed me as a person. He is not just a pet he is my best friend.
Stay tuned for more Caturday post on the blog!
