My name is Mr. Leo, but you can call me Cream Puff. I know, I look like I recently retired from the WWF, but I am really a young, three-year-old, go-along, get-along kind of guy. Plus, with my dark reddish tiger stripes and my Maine coon fuzziness, I combine the best of the feline kingdom. I mean, who wouldn’t want an orange tabby? And everyone seems to love Maine Coons.
As for my personality, I’m a sweet, gentle guy who is ready to warm right up to anyone. And, if you offer to brush me, I may just roll over so you can get my tummy, too. Yes, brush my gorgeous, fluffy, orange fur and I will be putty in your hands. I am affable with a capital A.
Lately, I have been hanging out with my new gang of friends at the Danvers PetSmart. When I am not in my cage, I like to visit with my neighbors. I am especially sweet on one cute girl named Lady Checkers. She is a petite but big-hearted girl and I hope we will be adopted together. But honestly, I like all the cats here. I came from a multi-cat home, so if you already have other cats, I will fit in and be a great companion to them and to you. I know you are wondering about my left ear. It is a bit crumpled, isn’t it? I guess I was born this way because I can assure you that I am a lover, not a fighter. So, maybe I’ve got an American Curl in my family tree? In any case, it’s just another feature that makes me unique. I really am very special that way.
Ok, let’s get serious now. I am a patient guy, and I’m cool with chilling here at PetSmart with my friends…for now. But what I really want is a home to call my own with a person or people who would love a special guy with a gentle personality. Is that you? If so, let’s get in the ring and go a few rounds. Ok, I mean, drop by and give my tummy a pat or two. Let’s see where that leads us. Hopefully back to your house and my new life with you!
