Leo Fans,

NOTICE:

Leo has been ADOPTED as of June 1st!!!

He now has a forever home with a wonderful person who loves cats so much, she used to be the leader of the humane society in her hometown, where she trained cats!

I'm so happy for Leo and wish him a life fit for a King~

April 30th, 2013

After getting to know Jaffa for the past few months, he has been renamed to Mr. Leopold~~Leo, for short^^

Mr. Leo has been doing excellent living in the small apartment home I have since February. He is quiet most of the time and rarely makes any loud noise, except when he wants his food. : ) He has a healthy appetite, but since getting him adjusted to life with me, I only feed him twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening. This restricted diet has been healthier for him and he has lost about half a kilo.

Leo likes to cuddle and snuggle with me on the couch~ He is a doll kitty!! A sweet boy with a good temperament. He loves to play with his mouse on a string stick. It is his favorite toy, a 1,000 won toy I found at Daiso and he absolutely adores it!!

Leo would like to find a home that can keep him long term. I can't keep him much longer, as I soon plan to finish my employment contract and go back to my home country.

Please consider meeting with me to meet this sweet, affectionate boy! He is quite the tame little lion^^

If you would like to meet Mr. Leo before filling out an adoption application, please contact Mindy anytime at [email protected]

However, if you want to go ahead and start the adoption application process, please email the following people: [email protected] and [email protected]

Thank you!!

UPDATE: March 4

1st Foster parent update

" Jaffa is the perfect cat and he's just waiting for that special person to notice him. He deserves to be treated like the Prince of Cats royalty he is!!

I've had Jaffa in my home for about 3 weeks now and he is enjoying his time with me after being out in the freezing cold at the Asan shelter.

He is a cuddler and loves to snuggle up next to me on my lap,..especially when I have lots of work to do and notebooks or books on my lap!

Jaffa is pretty laid back and quiet, he is easy going and easy to care for. He would make a wonderful forever cat for anyone who is considering adopting. He came to me with a mild feline virus from being out in the cold, but he's doing much better now and the sneezing has almost stopped completely.

I am attaching photos of him~ he is truly a snuggle buddy! He even sleeps at the foot of my bed at night (^.^) "

Check out some photos of him in the comment section below!

Before foster home life, these were shelter updates~

SHELTER UPDATES ~~~
UPDATE: February 16

Yay!!! Lucky Jaffa went to a wonderful foster home today! Thank you Melinda for giving this lovely roly poly a fighting chance. Jaffa had just recently started showing very mild symptoms of the herpes virus, no doubt the cold weather contributing to helping him contract it, and this was confirmed when he had a health check yesterday after leaving the shelter. He also has a case of ear mites. Not to worry, Melinda has kindly taken it on to see that he gets better, help him receive the short and affordable treatment for both ailments while providing him with a warm stable home and plenty of TLC to boot! Jaffa also received some preventative heartworm treatment too. Melinda was instantly charmed by Jaffa and continues to be affectionate in his new temporary home. Bright days ahead for Jaffa!

UPDATE: January 22

Come and meet roly poly friendly Jaffa!!!

UPDATE: December 25

Poor Jaffa will have to spend this holiday season at the shelter. I'm so surprised he's still waiting for that special family to come along and wisk him away from the shelter cold. But Jaffa's a resilient one, and I hope your perfect family isn't too far away. Fingers crossed 2013 will be your year! Please consider giving this orange bundle of love a warm loving home this coming new year! If you're interested in fostering or adopting Jaffa, please contact and send a completed application form to Daisy at [email protected]. Application forms can be found here >>> http://www.animalrescuekorea.org/adoption-application. PLEASE GIVE JAFFA A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

UPDATE: November 24

Jaffa is still patiently waiting for that special family! I love this roly poly guy so much, he has so much personality and constantly cracks me up with his antics. I always look forward to him bounding towards me when I arrive at Asan shelter every Saturday (Mr Park and I call him 'Kaeyangi' or 'dogcat' because he is more like a dog as he happily greets people!), I love his affectionate head rubs against my legs, I love his playful interactions with people and his non fuss demeanor! Jaffa LOVES his food! He is really well fed at Asan with a good combination of good quality wet and dry food, yet his appetite his ravenous!! I often have to feed him separately because he will hog the other cats food! And it always cracks me up when he excitedly circles my legs as I make up their food in preparation for the ensuing feast! Could someone come and give this clown a home and a family to play with, he doesn't belong in a shelter!

***

Meet Jaffa!

Jaffa is a young, healthy, friendly roly poly feline currently residing in Asan shelter and longing for a loving family he can charm and play with all day! Jaffa is more than often the first one to greet me on my weekly trips to Asan with his cool playfulness, sweet affections and chilled out ways. Jaffa is the king friendly figure with the Asan kitty clan so he's great with other cats, loves his cuddles and doesn't bite or scratch.

Though his sweet manners and love for food and treats helped give him his name, Jaffa could do with a little weight loss.
Jaffa is neutered, vaccinated and generally in great health! A general health check will be required once he leaves the shelter. Just a side note, previously there have been some cases of stomatitis ( like a feline gingivitis) and non fatal but highly contagious feline herpes virus in the shelter. Jaffa hasn't displayed any symptoms of either and his oral health seems satisfactory but a more thorough check of his teeth is needed. There is a possibility stomatitis symptoms can develop in the future and thus require some dental treatment and care. Most cats that are exposed to an environment where stomatitis has occurred WILL NOT develop it, but some cats will, and a depressed immune system does seem to make them more likely to develop it. However, if by any chance this arises, there is a fantastic vet in Seoul who specializes in feline dental care we can refer you too!

It would be great to get him into a foster home, or better yet a forever home, ideally before the bitter winter sets in so he can really thrive! If you would like to know more about Jaffa contact Daisy on [email protected]

We went and visited the shelter on Sunday and had a great time. We also fell in love with Jaffa, put in an application to adopt him and hope to be his forever family very soon.

This is Jennifer, Sir Leopold's mom in South Korea. I have had him now for almost 8 months and he has truly been the joy of my life! I am a teacher in South Korea and Leopold is already famous amongst other English teachers. I look forward to taking him home with me to the United States next year. <3

Hi Jennifer, I'm so happy Sir Leopold is doing great with you!
I uploaded some pictures of him but I'm not sure if he is or not. :)
He was one of familiar cat with people and I heard he's been adopted one day.
Now I heard of him finally. So much happy with this great news.
Hope you have a good time in Korea and pray for your happy life!
Suyoun.

Those pictures are definitely him! Thank you so much :D I will save them on my computer. I will continue to give updates. He is fun to share with~

dbis's picture

Thank you so much Jennifer for the update and photos!
It's wonderful to see a very happy Mr Leopold doing great in his new home. Is he still a snack fiend?! ^^ It's funny to hear that he's famous, but no surprise really, he was always a very charming fellow! Please give him all my love and I wish you two the best life together. Keep us posted :)

Jennifer's picture

Oh yes! He still loves his snacks. I have to be very careful since he gains weight so easily. However, his all-time favorite is dried squid. When I tried to feed him a bit of tuna, he would not touch it. Which I thought was rather strange...and then i thought...wait a minute, this is a Korean cat. So I gave him some dried squid and he goes bonkers for that! lol So I am glad I found him something that he loves and that he is familiar with. :D
