Ace (now Magnus) is a handsome 4-year-old boy who was found abandoned in the Hollywood Hills by a good samaritan named Leah. He was placed into foster care with Les, who cared for him generously and nursed him through a respiratory infection and dental problems. Ace lucked out and found a wonderful forever home with Gail.
His rescuer Leah provided us with his history:
“We live in the Hollywood Hills not far from the Hollywood Bowl. The neighborhood has many dogs, but very few cats. Because coyotes can be seen often at night and even in the day, people around the neighborhood know to keep their cats inside… So in late October, I saw a gray and white cat on our back terrace twice. This little guy is who we came to call Ace (because he is such an easy cat and pet)…
Ace was so eager to be pet and talked to. He responded affectionately and me meowed at me for more. I soon realized this is a stray who had a home…. We ended up learning how Ace became homeless in our neighborhood. A woman about 10 houses down, who we didn’t know, had been renting a room. She moved out and left Ace behind.
Ace spent a couple weeks on our terrace sleeping every day. At night as we watched tv and ate dinner, he would look in the windows at us and it broke our hearts. The final night we had him before placing him in the care of The Cat’s Meow, we introduced him to our two cats in the kitchen. He was nonchalant and his usual polite self. He is just such a good, all around cat.”
