Handsome Leo Lionni here was formerly known as Basement Cat, and had a home, of sorts, in a basement that was really the property of some housecats, and while he had some food and warmth he lived the tough life of an unowned cat. Now his caretaker has gotten him inside and squared away with us. He's available for immediate adoption! Fostermom Emily says she has trouble getting him out of her lap for long enough to take a photo, and that "once he gets going, he just wants to crawl into your lap and purr and knead."
Leo Lionni was a beloved children's book author. I think this kitty resembles LL's creations, but he also has big lion paws like a leo -- or a lion!
