Seen in front of Smoky Mountain Dog Bakery in downtown Waynesville, NC during a break from all the hiking last week. Said "break" meant about 4 miles of walking around this quaint little town if I heard mom and dad correctly.

- Hi. I'm Cleo. After being surrendered at Orange County Animal Services in Chapel Hill, NC I found myself being gawked at by a couple of humans whom I eventually adopted. I let them refer to themselves as "mom" and "dad", and they couldn't have found a better home than one filled with... me.

And so this is how it goes.
out of bed:
a) before God
b) at stupid o'clock
c) before the ass-crack of dawn
d) at I can't sleep so I might as well get up o'clock
every morning, where he'll:
c) zombie wander
off to the:
c) ash pit
c) daintily sip
d) gob slobber
of caffeine, leaving:
a) Mutt and Jeff
b) Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner
c) Donald and Melania
d) Cleo and mom
to sprawl out, making full use of the bed's total square footage to their hearts' content. Notice who gets most of the space.
Mom and dad are on day 4 of their week of hiking since dad's got the week off. With the exception of Wednesday (groceries, laundry, errands, etc.), the mom-tinerary includes miles of trails in Pisgah National Forest, Dupont State Forest, Hickory Nut Gorge, Green River Game Lands and Table Rock up by Linville Gorge. So far since Saturday they've logged about 10 miles each day, including a few extra steps at the end of:
of those days up to the order window at Whistle Hop and Highland breweries.

After more than 2 years without a live-in feline friend we found this senior Tortie gal at a local shelter and just couldn't leave without her. Cleo certainly came with an abundance of purrsonalitude, and has staked her claim on our hearts and in our home since day one. It took some long, deep thought, but I decided to pick up where Orbit left off and let Cleo tell her stories. Of course from time to time I'll add some non-Cleo posts, but she'll get over it.
