Monday Meowsie News…Leo Is Looking


ummm…shuffling paws…well, this is really hard to say…but Leo needs to find his own furrever castle.  I am just to afraid to let him in the same room.  And Leo, well, he is such a great mancat about all this…but he deserves a better quality of life than having to stay in his hotel suite most of the time.

The only time he can have the run of the house is when I take naps in my master bedroom tent…and truth to tell…I figured out that when I do that…I get shut in the room…and now I won’t go there anymore to take my daily naps.  I am now staying downstairs…so Leo can’t be let out of his room.


This is not the quality of life Leo deserves and I want to get my routine back so I don’t have to keep going UTB if I am shut in our bedroom.

We all have very leaky eyes…but we are launching today a search for Leo to find his furrever castle.


I have created a Page at the Top of My Blog…”Leo’s Castle Search”… click HERE…I had Mom and Dad put up information that is impawtant to help Leo find his furrever castle…like I found mine.

Here are  a few impawtant specifics he needs in his furrever castle…more are noted on his PAGE at the top of my blog:

  • Must be an indoor cat ONLY…he has NEVER been outside…he is about 4-6 years old; he is micro-chipped; all shots etc. current
  • It must be within a car drive from the San Francisco Bay Area…it can be in Southern Oregon, Nevada, or Arizona perhaps; but Northern California is our target search
  • No little children under age of 12
  • Preferably, calm home with one stay at home human: works from home/retired/etc.

Leo is FULLY RECOVERED from his episode with hepatic lipidosis (fatty liver syndrome).  He loves his food…is an excellent player and has never ever had any issues with litter box, etc.

However…his Vet prefers that he not be subjected to any excessive stress right now…as it can be a trigger for this syndrome.  Because  of  this, we do not want him to be transported a long distance.

We have had help from some good furriends in getting this started…and all of us working to find Leo his Furrever Castle are from all over the globe…this is the brilliance of social media…we believe that Leo is only 6 furriends away from making his contact with his Furrever Castle.

Even if you are in South Africa, New Zealand, Nova Scotia, Ontario CN, Sweden, UK, or East, South, North, Midwest, etc USA…you may know someone…who knows someone…who knows someone else…who can help Leo find his furrever castle…we are purraying for the ” Six Degrees of Separation” theory…

“Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of  “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two cats in a maximum of six steps.”

…and we ask you to feel free to take any of the information, photos, videos from Leo’s page to include in a blog post, tweet about it, post it on your Face Book page…we need your help and are grateful we have so many of you to ask…thank you for sticking with me during the past two months.

It has been difficult to manage Leo’s care when he had a feeding tube in and also all the other stuff Mom and Dad are involved in for community volunteering and what not. So, Mom hasn’t been able to help me get ’round to visit lots. I am sorry.  Once Leo has his furrever castle, I hope we can be back to normal soon.

…here are the photos we picked to help Leo’s search…they are on his Page too…

I guess that is enough Monday Meowsie News…it has us all wiping leaky eyes…but we hope we will soon have tears of joy when Leo gets that call from someone who wants to give him his furrever castle…and he does come with his “hope chest”…you can see what is in it on his page “Leo’s Castle Search

Paw Pats, Savannah

    Leo is a handsome boy and surely someone will give him a loving forever home. I am sorry that you didn’t take to him Savvy but your family have given him his life back.

  4. Our head peep is going to tweet this. She has some west coast followers and most of them aren’t cat bloggers, so fingers crossed that the signal boost helps. Leo deserves the best!

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

    Good luck with the search. He’s such a lovely boy, I’m sure someone will be thrilled to have in their home. We’re too far away and too many cats but I know I’d love him to bits. There is a soft spot in my heart for orange kitties!


  28. Oh, if you did not live so far we really need an orange cat now that Muffy has crossed the bridge. The zoo is putting out good new home energy for Leo. Someone come snuggle him forever!!!!!

  29. I’m sniffing away some tears…. I hope Leo will find his furrever castle – he has the heart of a lion.

    Some things are just not meant to be, no matter how much we wish otherwise. Leo now has the chance to live a wonderful life and you and your family are a enormous part of that. If karma really exists, and we believe it does, then you all have banked a huge amount of the best karma there is. Good luck Leo, and Gods speed.

  31. It is so amazing to look back and see what a confident little guy he has become with the help of your folks! It is a shame he is leaving but all for the best! Keeping everything crossed that Leo finds his furever home (and that Mary will too as she is still looking

  32. Wish I lived near by 😦 Love him to bits and not met him x Will FB and twitter today 🙂

  33. Dear Savvy……you have been the perfect hostess for Leo, and your Mom and Dad have been the BEST of foster parents so you all have a lot to be proud of. Let’s hope we can get Leo into a very happy home of his own now so you can have yours back!!! I just reblogged your blog in case I have readers that may not otherwise see this blog of yours today – let’s hope SOMEONE will step up and take Leo into their heart and home!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  34. Reblogged this on onespoiledcat and commented:
    Dear Friends….many of you know Leo’ story and now he’s ready to move to his FOREVER home – – we just have to find it for him! If you know anyone in California who would be happy to add a TRUE SURVIVOR kitty to their family please contact Savannah through her blog. Let’s give Leo a new start!

  38. My human thinks Leo is SO awesome! She wishes he could come live here, but it probably would not be a good fit, considering there are two divas here (I mean Binga and my human, of course) and a space alien with low self-esteem. Not to mention a dog and a dog-human! But I will do my best to try to find Leo a home! He really deserves to be the king of his castle after all he has been through!

  39. Your Mom and Dad have done so much to get Leo back on his feet. And you, Savvy dear, was gracious enough to share your Mom, Dad, home AND toys with him. We’re purring Leo’s forever family is just a few clicks away!

  40. Dinah on said:

    Savannah, if someone does know someone who wants a wonderful man cat like Leo, who should they contact? Your friend Dinah RWB (reader without blog, and no space in our castle for a man cat.)

  41. Reblogged it – don’t have many readers, but all it takes is one who comes here and reblogs this again or takes my blog entry to his facebook-page or .. well, you never know.

  42. Reblogged this on inhannover and commented:
    So, even if I do not know somebody right in that area – maybe you, who you come by this blog do – or you know somebody else who might – or you just give it a try, if somebody comes by your page and happens to know someone … the 6 steps away theory works. Let’s prove it

    [Step one]
    You may even post this in your Facebook-account.

  43. spittythekitty on said:

    We added Leo’s picture & a link to our sidebar! We know Leo will find the purrfect home and until then he is safe & cared for with your Humans. You’re a good girl, Sweet Savannah!

    • Oh thank you Spitty. If you have time can you tell the comment or ” franheau…” Above how to do that on her sidebar?

      • spittythekitty on said:

        Her blog is a WordPress Blog; mine is Blogger. I’m sorry but I don’t know anything about WordPress–I see that she reblogged it, though. If you want, I can type out instructions on how to make a sidebar post in Blogger and email it to you so you can use if if someone with a Blogger blog wants to do that.

  45. Keep my paws crossed that Leo will find his own castle in NO time even if it means leaky eyes.

  46. Well, I think I caught a case of that leaky eye syndrome after reading your post! Who wouldn’t want to give Leo a furever home?

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
