We adopted Leo after losing both our dogs in less then a year. I have always had dogs but visiting with my friends they told me I should try a cat. Because we are gone three months a year I decided not to get a puppy until we change our life style. I went to the Headwaters Animal Shelter for three days and the same cat came to me all three days. So off to our house we went. Leo is a keeper. We have visited the vet a lot as he has had respiratory problems and parasites. The shelter did not tell me that he came from the hoarder place in Fargo. If I had known that I probably would not have taken Leo. The vet said she was glad I didn't know because Leo has a wonderful home. He is not what I expected. He is kind of like all my dogs I have had. Meets me at the door, sits on my lap and doesn't let me out of his site. He doesn't have a mean bone in him. I am just as thankful for Leo as I imagine he is of us.
