Leola's Story

Have you ever seen a kitty more darling than Leola?  This gorgeous girl has the prettiest green eyes and grey polka dot spots that make her one of the most beautiful felines we’ve ever seen!  Leola is a complete sweetheart who is looking for her human soulmate who will wrap her in their arms and cherish her forever!  Leola was relinquished to Chicago Animal Care and Control by her owners.  After finding herself alone and without a home, Leola’s hope vanished and she was unsure of what the future held.  PAWS saw just how special she was and made it our mission to find her a loving forever home!  This girl loves to greet her people at the door and will shoot up the minute she hears you jiggle the door knob!  She is always prepared and ready to rub right up against you and will meow softly if she knows you’re not paying attention to her!  That’s right!  Leola is somewhat of an attention hog and absolutely loves having all eyes on her!  Once she’s had enough of people gaping at her beauty, she’ll let her other kitty roommates get some attention, but she surely does love it when everyone comments on how gorgeous she is!

Leola was recently in a foster home where her foster mom said she enjoyed kneading and suckling on a plush blanket at the edge of her bed!  She enjoys play time too and has no problem entertaining herself with toys!  Some of her favorites are rattle and tinfoil balls, her small stuffed mouse, and wand toys!  After staring at Leola’s pretty face for a while, we know you’ll be tempted to show her some love and give her a good chin rub!  Although she enjoys receiving pets and affection, she can get overstimulated at times.  She would do best with an owner who can recognize when she’s had enough direct interactions for now.  Leola knows her perfect forever family is out there for her!  If you feel you can provide the perfect home for an attractive feline like Leola, then you have to meet her at the Lincoln Park Adoption Center!  She is bound to make you fall for her the minute you say hello!
