- 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.

Hey y'all. Dad and I are gonna take a brief blogger high-ate-us. We're enjoying a welcome visit from dad's youngest son and they're planning on stuffing lots of activities into a short time. They haven't seen each other in a few years so there's lots of catching up to do. Mom and dad drove up north to pick up his son waaaay up in Pennsylvania and just got in last night. Almost as soon as our visitor opened his suitcase I was right there to check it out.
The photo is out of focus because I wouldn't sit still, rolling around in it, sniffing every surface (the suitcase lives with a pup) and just being all gosh darn adorable. This morning dad's body wanted to get up effing early as usual, but his head was fighting it, so he sat in bed reading and sipping his java while mom pretended to read (I think she was snoring) and I dozed on dad's lap.
We'll be back sometime next week or so. Y'all have a great week.

Considering it's in our nature to sleep a good 12 hours a day or more, the majority of photos dad has in his "Cleo" folder are of me slumbering away on one lap or the other.
Sometimes on the living room carpet, once in a while on their bed and occasionally out on the steps I'll curl up for a good long snooze, but mostly it's their laps. He says for a big ol' girl with attitude galore, a dislike for being held and the need- recently, especially for some reason- to wake him and mom at all hours of the night for no other reason than wanting attention they can't help but look at me like this and just go "Awwww...".
My work here is done.
About This Blog
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.
