Leo is a kitten that was rescued and fostered by PAWS. One late night and early morning Leo became lethargic and was in serious trouble as no vet was open to help him. His foster resorted to Facebook begging anyone with experience to help. Ironically since I have 2 cats already and have dealt with kitty colds numerous times I knew exactly how to help this little guy, but I also knew that it would be a very long shot and the odds were against Leo. He was bundled up, kept warm, his sinus constantly cleared so he could breath, and water forced into him to keep him hydrated. As the hours passed Leo fought and held on. Barely 2 weeks old and this kitten was starting to show his true character. By the time the vet opened there was little improvement with Leo. So little that the vet had even given Leo a 50/50 chance to live. It was up to Leo. We all waited to hear from the vet and finally early afternoon the vet called. Leo made it.
Since then Leo has grown into a very healthy kitten and its been a joy to watch him grow. This drawing was done to forever capture not only him, but his very personality.
LEO FOUND HIS FOREVER HOME JANUARY 11, 2014! He has two wonderful pet parents and a feline companion to play with. Recent pictures from his pet parents show him very happy and playing with his new buddy.
All proceeds from this print will be donated to PAWS so other rescues like Leo have a fighting chance.
He was born on Friday the 13th. He never has a good day and has the worst luck any carebear could have. In fact none of the carebears will have anything to do with him. INCLUDING GRUMPY! His name is Thirteen.
I was put up to the challenge of creating a Friday the 13 character based on something that was popular when I was little. I used Grumpy as a basis for Thirteen. So enjoy this little guy.
