Leo was an incredible and rare Flame Point Siamese Rumpie and was the inspiration behind the Pet Alert Emergency Information System due to his physical handicaps and need for medication and medical attention to survive after he had undergone two life threatening surgeries.
Leo was a very unusual cat with a amazing attitude, that seemed to understand everything one would say to him and demonstrated affection and caring for all animals and people. He also enjoyed to travel in all modes of transportation; cars, planes, trains and his favorite was sailing
Our favorite picture of Leo (the oval shaped picture to the left) was taking sailing on Lake Pleasant in AZ, the others where taken at different events. Leo's favorite spot however, was the fire truck.
“Leo was our star for pet safety" and traveled all over the United States during his career to help educate pet owners of the problems and dangers for pets left "home alone" without proper information and the importance to be Pet Alert wherever your pet is, even when traveling.
During Leo's 10 year career he appeared in articles and on several national and local TV/Cable stations sharing our mission and representing the importance of pet safety awareness. He also appeared with the fire dept. mascot "Sparky“ and other firefighters at special events and was the mascot of the Orange County Pet Safety Days in CA to promote disaster preparedness and pet first-aid information. Now know as Fire and Pet Safety Day in July.
Unfortunately Leo suffered with many physical handicaps during his 13 year life, however most people never knew the difficulties of them because of his undying love for life and his courage to try to overcome the limitations God gave him.
Leo had a precious gift, which inspired many people to be "thankful for life itself " and showed many the simple pleasure of expressing kindness to others could make the difference for them to keep on living and see the rewards that life can bring.
Leo passed away in November 2002 and will be remembered by all who knew him as a
"little man in a cat’s body", who his veterinarians called the "Miracle Cat".
Leo you are missed, sleep well for you deserve it.
Love always, Camy
Thank You for your help to continuing Leo's quest.
Please help us continue Leo's journey to help educate pet parents about being "pet alert" and the importance to give their pets a lifeline-to-safety with proper information wherever their pets and animals are.
A few important things that you can do to help protect your pets are;
Always have your pet wear a collar with an ID Tag, even if they live indoors, so if they accidentally get out of your home or yard, the information on their tag will help them find their way home again!
Prepare and plan ahead by always having on hand at least two weeks of your pet's medicine, and 3 days of your pets food, bottled water and keep their leashes and carriers easy to reach in case of an emergency situation should arise.

In remembrance of our beloved Mascot "Leo"
He was a star for pet safety
In remembrance of my best friend for 15 years "RED"
Red was an Anatolian Shepherd and my best friend for 15 years.
Red was known to most, as a really BIG dog (125 lbs) that made friends everywhere he went and had a heart of gold. He was a very special friend to me too and always seemed to know when I needed that special nudge or happy smile.
In November 2009 Red suffered from a stroke and passed away on February 15, 2010 peacefully at home with his family.
Only because of Red’s stroke did I realize that the information in the last two chapters of the Guide to Pet Safety where needed to help pet owners, know how to realize if a pet is in distress and to know what to do to quickly to help them until they could reach proper medical care.
I have dedicated the last two chapters of the Guide to Pet Safety to honor "Red", since it was his medical emergency that alerted me to share this important knowledge. My hope is that it will help a pet owner in crisis help their pet, in the time of need.
I know Red will be missed by all that knew him, especially me.
Red, I miss our walks and playing fetch with your ball, which you loved so much. And quiet support you give me while you chewed on your big rawhide bone next to my desk, and that I miss the most.
Dream well my friend and may the angels play fetch with you now.
With all my Love, Camy
