Meow – well hi there! My name is Princess Leia, and I’m a beautiful and friendly female orange tabby cat. I was born in September of 2016. My brother Luke and I were named after the Star Wars Jedi twins – complete with action-packed and heroic personalities!
When Luke and I were very young, a kind volunteer found us in her front yard in Flower Mound. Our mommy cat was nowhere to be found, so the lady brought us into her home to raise us. She already had two cats and two black labs, and it was a joy growing up with so many animals to play with! Plus, it was safe place, free from predators.
Two years ago, my brother Luke was adopted by a wonderful family, and I was adopted by a family with a five-year-old boy. I loved playing with the young boy, and we had a special bond. Everything was going well until the arrival of a new baby. All of the ensuing crying was very upsetting to me, and this had a negative impact on my personality. My adopted mother didn’t want to give me up, as I would curl up next to her when everything was calm and quiet. But because they truly cared about my well being, they gave me back to Animal Allies of Texas so they could place me into a quieter home. I truly need a quieter home with mature children and adults who have time to spend with me. I am also most active in the evenings, so I would be a great companion to a working household.
I’m now being fostered by a family who has two cats and a small, high-energy dog. I get along very well with the dog, and I am slowly making friends with the other cats in the home. Every day, I am becoming more relaxed and comfortable in my foster home. I absolutely ADORE belly rubs, cuddling in bed, and meal time. And, I dream of one day having a furr-ever home where I belong to a family again. Can you be that family that I’m looking for? If so, please complete an on-line application and ask for me — LEIA — and a caring volunteer will be in touch with you to arrange a meet and greet. I know you have so many cats and kittens to choose from on Petfinder, but I’m hopeful that you’ll give me a second chance for a great life.
