It's true. His new mama, Laura, came and picked up our sweet little dumpling this weekend. He's doing GREAT in his new home. His new big brother, Tiberius, a three year old Bengal mix, is thrilled that he moved in. He's already taken to grooming Leonard and they're having a blast playing together. It's always nice when they bond so quickly.
Leonard will remain "Leonard".
Tiberius was born around the birthdays of Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner, so his name is a Star Trek reference. Tiberius is the "T" in James T Kirk, Shatner's character. It seems there are many Sci-Fi fans hanging out at the IBKC, so I probably didn't need to explain the reference, but for those not in the know, there you go. So, Leonard is the perfect name for a companion cat to Tiberius. And Leonard's ears are pointy, kind of like Spock's.
We'll all miss the little fellow, but take comfort in knowing he's so happy in his new place.
Thank you, Laura, for adopting our little fellow! And thanks to Tiberius for being so welcoming! We know our boy is in great hands.
