Leah, Domestic Longhair For Adoption In Toronto, Ontario
DOB: Nov. 15, 2005Leah is a sweet and loving cat. She loves getting pets and purrs happily most of the time. She also enjoys being brushed. When she’s done, she curls up in her bed beside her foster dad, making biscuits and purring contentedly before she settles in for a nap. She naps most of the time.Leah takes a few days to develop trust but once she does, she gives a lot of love. She gives head butts till she gets head and chin scratches and if she thinks the pets are not enough, she will try to lift your hand up and guide you to her head. She also dances in circles when you give her treats.Leah recently lost her mom to Covid. At times she can be a little grumpy and hissing, but her actions are understandable after losing everything. She’s still adjusting to her new life. She has been through a lot, and she’s handling it well.For an old girl, Leah still has a lot of pep. Once she gets comfortable in your home, Leah will start to run around a bit, bat around ping pong balls and chase furry mice (with cat nip) and the laser dot.Leah has stage 2 kidney disease, a condition that is controlled with a special kidney care diet. She's on Hill's Prescription Diet Kidney Care (k/d) wet food and dry food. Aventi Kidney Complete powder has to be sprinkled on her food.Leah needs someone who will respect her space and understands that she likes to be pet on her own terms. She will do better with an experienced parent who can read her body language. She's long haired and grooms herself well but that also leads to hairballs. She benefits greatly from regular brushing. She’ll be an excellent companion for anyone who welcomes this sweet girl into their lives.Thank you for welcoming a senior cat into your family - an adoption fee of your choice is appreciated, vs. our standard adoption fee of $175.Adoption process**PLEASE NOTE: adoptions are ongoing during COVID-19, but we have adjusted our process to ensure the safety of our foster parents and adopters.
