If you follow me on social media, you know I’m ob-sesssed with my Persian kitty, Leonardo. He’s honestly cooler than most people I know.
SOO, we had an over-the-top birthday party for him, catered and all. People actually showed up with gifts, it was excessive.
If you met him, you’d get it. He really is special and I was NOT a fan of cats before taking home Leo. The story on how we got him was a complete meant-to-be kind of thing. My boyfriend and I decided to take a drive and look at homes for sale in the neighborhood, because at the time we were interested in buying. On our way home, Pasquale pointed out a puppy store and immediately regretted opening his mouth because he knows I’m the most impulsive person on earth and I’d probably want something. Nonetheless, he eventually caved in and we went to go look at puppies. We realllllly wanted a boxer, but our landlord at the time had a strict no pet policy. As we were looking around, I saw the tiniest ball of fur hiding in a glass cage and I asked the lady to take him out.
This was my first time holding him and he was the CUTEST, itty bitty thing ever. Despite how big he looks in the picture, he was just under 2 lbs.
I was overwhelmed with love at first site and decided to get him and figure the logistics out later – as I do with most of my decisions, ha.
Here we are 1 year later, and I can’t believe how much he’s changed our lives.
Happy Birthday Leonardo!
