Sweet Leon is so sweet that it had to be an official part of his name! He's super friendly with people and loves to play with toys, and he's got all the moves for getting your attention.

When he wants attention, Sweet Leon will meow and roll around turning up his cuteness to the maximum level. If you call him, Sweet Leon will happily come over for some pets! He's not super snuggly, but he loves being petted on the head and back - belly rubs, however, are not his thing. But once you start petting him, he will be purring and rolling around happy as can be! His purrs are super cute too - he almost sounds like a dove cooing!

Sweet Leon is pretty playful, mostly with toy mice and wand toys with feathers or bells, which are his favorites! Sometimes he takes his energy out on other cats though and might try to start mini fights with other cats. He has been aggressive with the resident cat and chased after them, but at other times, Sweet Leon will be calmly hanging out right next to them. He will just need a nice and slow introduction if going to a home with other kitties.

To some, Sweet Leon might look a little rough with his scarred cornea and slumpy tail, but we think these traits make him all the more special! His little bobcat tail will twitch when he's playing and feeling frisky, and it's pretty cute! He also has the prettiest orange and white coloring.

Sweet Leon's idea of a forever home looks like one with people who will pet him often, provide him with some fun toys, and have some scratching posts around for him to scratch on. He loves a good scratch, and might seek out furniture if there aren't any posts or boards for him! Sweet Leon is ready to be your new sweet friend!

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
