After reading the story about Jessie the Beagle in Your Pet, I felt compelled to write and tell you all about Leo Lionheart. Working as a volunteer with 4 Paws Animal Rescue on the Sunshine Coast, a voluntary group of dedicated animal lovers who rescue cats and dogs from the local pound prior to being euthanased, I see many horrific and tragic sights when it comes to lost, abandoned, surrendered and homeless cats and dogs. But none was as pitiful as when we saw Leo. He was emaciated, riddled with fleas and had a bad case of ear mite. Despite Leo’s bad condition, he was very affectionate and outgoing. We knew he had a lot of potential to make a loving household pet so I took the challenge of battling his health conditions. Every day for two months his ears were bathed and he was shampooed, combed, medicated, and given the works. Now the results speak for themselves. Leo no longer scratches all day. His coat is thick and glossy and he has a lot of condition in his body. In every shape and form, Leo personifies the wonderful cartoon character ‘Garfield’ with his laid back, ‘love ‘em or leave ‘em’ personality. You couldn’t get a better and much more loving cat than Leo. I too say that Leo is a treasure.
