About Me

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.

Ahh, It's Good To Be Back

    Well, here we are, back at square one, sort of.  Yes, we moved again.  Dad ended up going back to work where he was before we left Wilmington in December, and I have to say, it's good to be back.
Glad to be back, but these window sills kind of suck
  We're familiar with our surroundings, things are a little different at work, and they'll be close to their favorite beach again.
     We actually got an apartment that's only one floor up and across the breezeway from where we were before, which means open windows and fresh breezes for me!
Keeping any eye on the road
 The ride up wasn't as bad as previous rides, so I guess that means I'm getting used to it.  Dad says this'll be the last time, though.  We'll see.  Now before you all go off on dad for letting me ride untethered and uncaged let me say this was my choice, and besides, dad doesn't want to hear it.  I don't know which is worse-  letting me ride unrestrained, or taking pictures of me while driving.  Sorry dad.
Traveling makes me tired
     He used the top and bottom of my litter box as my traveling bed, and after the first couple of hours co-piloting I got tired, so after making sure dad wasn't going to doze I took myself a nice nap.

Orbit, you are a good little traveler!

How cool your back to the good whiffin place!

Beautiful Orbit!! What matters is that you and mum and dad are happy and together!! Yay! Take care

Sheesh, your peeps move a lot! How inconsiderate, we think.
We howl and sing in the car, so your calmness is amazing.

As long as you like to ride like that, that's all that matters. But hopefully this will be the last time for that!

I'm glad you're back where you want to be. Better than suffering in a place that doesn't quite work! I think I probably told you about my mom's five-month NC adventure. (She had a three-week stint in another NM town once, too, so I think it's just a human thing.) Hope you're nowhere near the far-traveling winds of Riegelwood. ;-)

Wish mine traveled as well as you do.

It's nice to be back in familiar places, isn't it? We think you are a furry sweet traveler!

Wow, Orbit, we are impressed. When we have to travel Mommie has to put us in a carrier, because we come Insane Cats in a car.

Oh Orbit, you´re an angel!!!!

Me too prefer to travel uncaged !
When my mom put me in a cage I do a lot of miaowing :)

About This Blog

Created in July 2011 this blog chronicled the everyday life of a well-seasoned, spoiled house panther named Orbit. He was a nearly constant companion for almost 22 years, and ruled our roost until he passed away in December 2014, and the loss of his companionship hit us like a ton of bricks.
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.
