#Furholics – Meet The Sane’s Super Cat Leo

The Sane's Leo !


His favourite place is the loft, where he finds interesting insects. His favourite sleeping place is inside the pillow cover. His favourite activity is biting his human family, playfully. He can’t stand being cuddled unless he wants it. And he jumps like a gymnast.

That’s Leo, the eight month old from the Sane family.  

Lets Play:

Says Aditi Sane, a special educator, “We adopted him when he was a little over a month old.

Very active and playful, Leo plays with anything from paper balls to his soft toys.

” His favourite toy is Aditi’s finger, when she moves it.

“He can’t get enough of trying to catch it and bites me in the process. Every single time he is as excited about playing with as the first time we played it,” she laughs as the tom cat watches her fingers moving up and down.

Tanay’s reasons
Pest control was too expensive, a cat worked out cheaper.
Life was too happy, we need pain and a bitey cat was our solution.
Three generations at home got boring so we decided to ad a whole new species.

Home Bound:
Unlike most tomcats, Leo isn’t fond of the outdoors except when he has to sun himself. No nocturnal jaunts for this fella, even if the door is open, he goes out and comes right back in.

“In fact, he got into a fight only twice; once when a cat accidentally came into our terrace and once when he fell down from the balcony and encountered other cats,” she recounts. 

The CPU with it’s warmth is a happy place for Leo. “He tries to sit on the TV too but its flat screen so he gets nowhere,” adds Aditi.

Aditi’s Reasons
You imagine they are going to be company, when you want. Tuns out they are company when they want.
You can’t have a dog, get a cat.
Good playmates for children.


Children Tanay and Anway (who Leo completely bosses over) are totally delighted with their cat.

He is terrified of Pravin, my husband. if Pravin tells Leo to stop it, he quietens down.

“Like they say, cats have slaves, I am his slave..
