Leeza and her sister Fluffy were rescued as 5 week old kittens after their mother disappeared for nearly a week. The mother cat returned, minus her tail and with severe wounds. Someone in that neighborhood had captured and tortured her (Nesicha was also one of this evil person's victims). Unfortunately, even with the best medical care, the mother cat did not survive her injuries.
Leeza and Fluffy are extremely bonded. You never see one without the other: They sleep together, play together, eat together. Leeza loves to climb and the higher the spot, the better she likes it.
Despite being in an indoor home environment in close contact with humans and other cats for nearly a year, both Leeza and Fluffy avoid the other cats and will run if any human tries to touch them. Leeza is even more wary than is her sister, who will at least let you pick her up and pet her if she is eating (but at no other time). Leeza, however, loves to shadow her human caretakers, always staying a careful two feet away but very curious as to what they are up to.
If Leeza and her sister were placed together in a home without other cats and with patient and loving human owners, we believe that both Fluffy and Leeza would blossom and, within a few months, become fully socialized and wonderful kitty companions for their new family.
