Leon --- Looks can be deceiving
8 years | Male | Temperamental | Affectionate on his terms
Leon has come to the shelter because he was very stressed sharing his home with children. On top of that all of the surrounding neighbours got multiple cats so he was having to deal with them on his territory.
Leon has superstar good looks but he is a very stressy guy. He hasn't been happy for a number of years which has accumulated in him becoming aggressive and having toileting issues. When Leon does feel relaxed and safe he is an affectionate boy who enjoys cuddles, a warm lap, and playing with string. He loves sleeping on the bed with his person and needs lots of company and attention. Leon will be fine as either an indoor only or with some outdoor space. Leon is going to need a special person who is happy to give him time to settle and build trust. He has a short fuse and his person will need to be well versed in cat body language to understand his triggers.
Leon must be in a home without children. He must be the only pet and have no neighbourhood cats on the property.
