Luckily a wonderful home came up and the pair got adopted out together; we hear they are still together. Lifelong buddies in a real home -- a happy ending for them both. Currently we have another huge neutered male, Lion Boy, who came to us because his former owners said he was so aggressive with their other cat they were afraid for her life. He really is a huge cat and the potential for harm kept us from letting him interact at all with the other felines. For months we kept Lion away from cats in the other enclosures and put him in playrooms alone. Then we realized he is the only cat in the place who has never hissed or growled at anyone -- human or animal. We finally put Lion in the large playroom and after giving him time to get used to the room and the equipment (and with the broom at the ready again) put one kitten in with him. Our kittens are fearless -- they are so socialized anything in the playroom becomes a toy to them -- and Fred began to stalk Lion's bushy long tail. the hammock with the babies and it is heartwarming to come to the site in the morning and see four heads pop up from the hammock -- a huge orange one and three innocent kitten faces. Most recently we got a 6-week-old baby in and she is now in the playroom also. One of our volunteers said Cleo was at one side of the playroom in a crouch and ran toward Lion intent on the attack. They said Lion snagged her midair with both his front paws and pulled her down to the ground where he promptly washed her face before letting her go. Lion is a sweet boy who needs a good home. He's long-haired, loves to be brushed, will sit in your lap for hours, and is massive in size and huge in heart. Let's find Lion a home for the holidays. Any takers?
