Unfortunately it was too soon. He was only 6 years old. He had diabetes and pancreatitis and the enjoyment of life diminished so it was time. Leo has left behind one very sad family 🙁
Leo was my son Rowan’s cat. All 3 of my son’s have been given a cat on their 8th birthday, as I was given one when I was 8 (my best ever present!). My other two older sons still have their cats, Mew (15 yrsa old) and Ginger (11 years old).
Now my 14 year old son’s cat has gone and left a big empty space. A big space because he was a BIG cat. Being a Maine Coon, Leo was large in both size and personality. He quickly grew from a cheeky young kitten…who had his own blog for the first year of his life, cataloguing how he chewed his way through 6 mobile phone chargers! Read Leo’s Blog.
For all of his size though, Leo was a gentle giant. Not exactly a cat for cuddles, he did enjoy being held and put up with being carried around by the kids!
Even when his weight hurt their arms!
But like all cats, Leo was an expert at snoozing…
Leo enjoyed testing new pet products eg. Leo’s review of the Hepper Pet Pod. Now I will have to convince my other cats to give them a go.
Leo also featured in all of my business communications, together with Chilli dog.
Leo will be remembered as a business cat, a family cat, a friendly cat, a gentle cat but most of all our BIG cat. Living with Leo made our hearts whole and Leo’s leaving has left our hearts broken.
