Meet LEO


LEO and PEPPER have had a rough life already. They were from a Lawndale colony of outdoor cats. The people were super nice. The trapper TNR’D 6 cats that were all adults. LEO and PEPPER were too small to be returned. They deserved a chance to be adopted. And the fact that they had 3 other siblings that were killed by the neighbors running them over was the reason we saved them.

LEO is now ready to be adopted. LEO is very playful and your typical orange tabby. While there's no hard and fast research to back it up, it's long been believed that male cats tend to be friendlier than female cats, and with 80% of orange tabbies being male, that could why they have a reputation for being super affectionate.

Apparently, there’s an old legend about baby Jesus who, when he couldn’t sleep, was comforted by a warm and purring orange tabby. The story goes that this little feline made such an impression on the young child that Mother Mary kissed the cat on the forehead, leaving the letter “M” in its fur (some retellings actually state that Mother Mary drew her first initial on the cat’s forehead with a gentle finger).

This supposedly explains why any tabby cat you’ll come across today has a pattern on its forehead shaped like the letter M. And LEO is quite the charmer!! He is also curious and very affectionate. He does very well with his sister PEPPER. His pictures don't show his true cuteness!!

LEO is DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR / TABBY MIX. He is about 6 months old and is good with cats. He has never been around dogs or young children.

LEO is currently at PETSMART in Murrieta, California off Madison Avenue.

OCTOBER 2022: With all the needed social distancing, we are still doing adoptions. VOLUNTEERS are the only ones allowed to let you meet the kitty. Not PETSMART employees.

Volunteers are usually at Petsmart between 9 - 10 am to 12 pm - 1 pm. Please note that it is totally up to the volunteers if they are comfortable with allowing you in the cattery. (COVID). Steps 1-5 of the ADOPTION PROCESS need to be done before we do OFFICIAL MEET & GREETS.

The cats/kittens at a foster/rescue home, we will do meet and greets at any of the 3 Petsmart locations listed below.

But the crazy rescue mama will go out of her way for her kitties, once the application is completely approved. So gas donations always appreciated!

in Murrieta, Ca off Madison Avenue

in Hemet, Ca off Florida Avenue

in Palm Desert, Ca off Monterey Avenue


If the CAT/KITTEN is still listed (meaning here or other websites) they are still available. It does not mean they don't have other pending applications or meet and greets.

Please note: Just because you fill out an application and are approved does not obligate you to adopt the cat/kitten. If he or she is not a fit...we have plenty of other cats / kittens available for adoption.

We are a SMALL rescue based out of Hemet, California. We are all volunteers that run the rescue. If we haven't reached out be patient.

LEO is ALREADY fully vetted.
The adoption fee of $200 covers:

FVRCP shots
FELV/FIV test (Negative/Negative)
Drontal Dewormer
Stronghold Flea Control

We are NOT a government FUNDED shelter and all our donations and adoption fees are for our rescued cats/kittens. So, we do not do DISCOUNTS.

If for some unfortunate reason you missed out on the kitten/cat you emailed about...I'm sure that we could help you with another rescue baby! Just ask!

If you have any questions not covered here, please feel free to email us:
