Leo is probably the most loving creature I've ever known. While he's not overly demanding of attention, when he does want to cuddle he wants a lot of cuddles. He's friendly to visitors, and very affectionate with other family members.

He's a big cat and tends to flop on top of people. He has what I call "monkey paws" which pull unoccupied hands in for caresses. His purr is big and buttery so you always know that you're skritching just the right spot. He's also not shy about telling you when he's had enough, and is sometimes quite abrupt, but that's a fairly typical cat behavior. When he's annoyed he'll swat, and if he's really peeved he'll bite at people's shoes. I've never had him injure me, so it's more show than anything else.

When I got him I was told he was good with kittens, but he and his younger sister aren't really friendly. I'm not sure whose fault that is. Still, they tolerate one another, and I think he'd make more headway with her if he wasn't so big and playful.

He has two health issues which may or may not be breed linked. The first is his teeth. He just had 11 teeth pulled. I've tried a lot of remedies, but they just keep on going bad. Still, he manages really well without them, even eating dry food, so I guess we're okay. The second issue is asthma. It seems mild, but of course it needs to be taken seriously. I'm addressing that.

On the whole, I'd have to say that Leo is one of the sweetest, most lovable cats I've ever known. He's not one I'd have chosen on my own, but I am so very glad I have him.
