Love it!

Location: West Milford, New Jersey, USA


This is Miss Leela, at about ten months old. She was brought to the shelter after being found all alone in the rain when she was less than two months old.

We had just lost both of our cats, “the Shaddo/Jiggs generation” within five months of each other at 17 & 16 years old respectively. This little one needed a home and she came home as soon as she was well and strong enough to be adopted.

An extensive home renovation ensued shortly after Leela’s arrival, and she took it all in stride – proving herself to be quite the spitfire!

This picture was taken about four years ago, when the renovation was complete. Leela has made the house into a home.

    You’d think I’d get tired of seeing cats curled up in a snug, little half-circle but I never do. Leela is a beauty.

    ‘making a house into a home’…kittens have a knack for doing that! Sorry to hear you lost your two beloved felines, and I am quite delighted you’ve taken Leela into your heart and home. She’s lovely 🙂

    Leela is so pretty. Is the name, by any chance, a Doctor Who reference?

  11. Yes she is! I think it’s Joan from NJ. I remember when she got her–really pretty cat.

    Yay Leela! I think the name is actually a Futurama reference.

    Leela probably thought the renovations were being made for her! She certainly has the look of Queen of the Castle.

    Miss Leela looks to me like she’s thinking: “There goes my hoomin again with that flashy thingy.”
