Leonard, a young kitten, was found in a cardboard box in a commercial parking lot. The couple who owned the business rescued Leonard and took him in until they could find a shelter. When they went to a pet store to buy him food, they met a volunteer from Fat Cat Rescue who assured them that Fat Cat would take him.
Leonard is a CH (cerebellar hypoplasia) kitty, which means the part of his brain that controls motor skills and coordination did not develop properly. As a result, Leonard wobbles when he walks, and his head bobs. Leonard’s condition will not get worse, and he can live a long, happy life.
Leonard spent a couple of short, happy weeks at Fat Cat Rescue, but he has since moved on to “rehab” with a foster who has a talent and interest in giving Leonard all the individual attention and exercise he needs.
