Leonardo is handsome, in the rugged way of a man who has spent a lot of time outdoors. He is charming, the kind of guy who has lived a lot of life and could tell a lot of stories. He looks tough on the outside, but is an absolute love through and through. Leonardo was connected to a Kitten Rescue volunteer after he was found standing on a South LA sidewalk literally crying out for help. He had clearly been on the streets for a long time, and he was clearly ready for his next chapter (specifically regular square meals, lots of TLC and frequent head scratches) — when the Kitten Rescue volunteer approached, he walked straight into her arms and purred all the way to his foster home. This guy loves people and has clearly been around them, but he has the fur, skin and looks of a kitty who has spent a lot of time malnourished and flea infested (both since fixed!). He has the extremely chubby cheeks of a male who was neutered in his mid-life, but he patiently lets his foster mom squeeze them without getting even a little annoyed (she thinks he actually loves it). He is very aggressive with dogs and occasionally aggressive with other kitties, especially adult males, enough that he should be an only pet. The good news is that he concentrates all his love on people. Seriously, this guy is the absolute best and cannot wait to focus a lifetime of appreciation on his forever person!
