Lennox & Layla can be adopted separately or together.
Lennox (black & white medium hair male) is quick to warm up to new people and is quite outgoing. He is curious and playful but his concentration span is small. Lennox likes to interact with people and is very endearing especially when he asks you to stroke him by putting his paw on your arm. He lives life in the fast lane, jumping into everything feet first without thinking and guzzling his food as if there’s no tomorrow. He rushes around checking things out and is always on the look out for the next thing to do with quick bursts of energy. There’s no doubt about it, Lennox is the boss of these two and muscles in on Layla whenever he can. (PS It’s hard to get a photo of him sitting still!)
Layla (tortoiseshell short hair female) is extremely shy and it will take her a while to respond to your advances as she is very cautious. The way to her heart though is through food, and if you persevere she will learn to trust you little by little. Layla is alert and intelligent and won’t always fall for tricks – she will calculate the risk of coming forward against any benefit and as long as food’s involved she will let you stroke her. Layla is submissive to Lennox and steps aside when he pushes his way in and takes over. You will need to devote some time to getting Layla to trust you and the way to do that is through food. She has a longer concentration span and loves chasing wand toys.
Lennox and Layla need to be together. Before they came to SAFE they lived together as community cats, finding comfort in each other’s company and choosing to be friends. You will win Lennox’s heart fairly quickly but Layla will take longer and you will celebrate when it happens. They are both responsive to food training and will need to be kept in their own room for as long as it takes for them to start trusting you. This could be a month or more but during that time you can establish routines and watch them relax and respond. You will be able to look forward to the time when they decide that they are in a safe, loving environment and you will get their love as your reward! And the bonus is if you are out at work all day they will always have each other for company.
