    The theme reminds of Firebird (where the aliens were felinoids, not leonoids, and the computers were called Largo (male) and Czandra (female). – LSerni Jun 10 '18 at 14:52
  • Yes ! Thank you, Firebird by Charles L Harness was the book. – MICHAEL GILBERT Jun 12 '18 at 13:14

    @JamesfromNZ - The name of the male supercomputer isn't germane :-) – RDFozz Aug 24 '18 at 17:30

Per the OP comment above, this was Firebird by Charles L. Harness, published 1980 or 1981 (isfdb and goodreads disagree).
