This is Leo and as at 7 March he is approximately 7 months old.

Born outside, he was brought into care with his brother Pip, whom he is close to so it would be good to rehome them together but this isn’t essential. As Leo had never had contact with people he was petrified of humans. However, with lots of love, time and patience Leo is slowly learning to trust and now doesn’t mind being stroked and fussed but he still looks to his brother Pip for reassurance on occasions.

Leo is a curious kitten and likes to watch his foster mom from a distance to see what she is doing and to make sure he isn’t missing out on anything!

Leo prefers dry food although he will sometimes eat wet but can be fussy on what sort. He is now brave enough to come and take treats of chicken and ham from his foster mom’s hand.

Leo loves to play with all sorts of toys, especially fishing rod types and ping pong balls but like his brother, his favourite is a little clockwork mouse.

We are looking for a very special home for Leo that will see past his timidness and allow him the time and patience to build up trust at his own pace, whilst being aware that this may time a long time.

Leo needs an adult only home or one where the children are at aged at least 10 plus and know how to behave around timid animals. A boisterous household or one where young children visit regularly definitely wouldn’t be for him. Ideally we would like Leo to go to a home where he isn’t left for long periods of time on his own. Finally it would be lovely for him to have a garden (well away from main roads) that he could be gradually introduced to and explore when he feels brave enough to go outside.

Could you be that special person who will see past Leo’s shyness and offer him the loving home he so deserves?
