Leonard Doesn't Live Here Anymore

 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.

  3. Oh I'm so happy to hear he will have a playmate and big brother and that they are all getting along so well.

    Everyone, please look at the Alumni pics to see how Zoubi (formerly Zelda Lamm) is getting along with her new sister!! Adorable!

    Who is that saying goodbye to Leonard in the final two pictures?

      @Gretchen...In the right hand column, just above the box that says "Big Kitties Need Homes Too" you'll find a link that says "Itty Bitty Kitty Committee Alumni Group." Just click on that and you'll be there.

  4. When I heard the name Leonard, I thought of the character from The Big Bang Theory... don't know what that says about me. :)

    2. Once I learned of the Star Trek link, I thought Leonard was staying Leonard because of Dr McCoy on the original ST...but it has a dual connection to Leonard Nimoy. How awesome!

    Thank you Laura and Tiberious, and please do keep us updated.

  11. i have visions of leonard reminding his big brother at every opportunity that "i'm a kitten, not a doctor!"

  12. He reminds me SO MUCH of my Guido :D The same white face and chest, wide-eyed and head-tilted look of "what's going oooonnnnn". If he's got half of Guido's personality, he's gonna be a handful and the best cat EVER!
