After a very rough start Leo is doing fantastic. He is the sweetest BIG BOY. Time, proper medications and holistic approaches have worked so well for him.
Leo started out taking 2 elavil pills a day and is now down to 1 pill. I've experimented with him not taking any and it just isn't good for him. He needs that little bit of help. He is calmer on the medications, yet still spunky. He has two sisters whom he loves and who just adore him.
Leo playes with both KC and Sadie all the time. He naps with them and cuddles with them both.
Leo is extremely affectionate. He will sleep with me at night and loves to be held and hugged and will give tons of kisses when being hugged.
I hope this blog and this post gives any of you reading, the energy you need to stick with your kitty that is worrying you so much at the moment.
I adopted Leo in April of 2008. It's now February 2009. I never thought I'd keep Leo. I thought I was crazy for attempting to adopt him and then keep him. I regret nothing. He is the sweetest most behaved cat in the house.
My best advice to any of you is to give your kitty the time it needs to get better and more calm, to try elavil, which is relatively inexpensive and see how your kitty after three months on the meds daily. I wish you the best of luck.
