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.

     Once in a blue moon I like to play.  Okay, maybe once every hundred years or so, to be more accurate.  This is about as close as you'll get to an "action" shot of me.  I have a shoelace fetish, and mom, especially, likes to swing her shoes around in front of me, dangling the laces.  I entertain mom and dad by swatting and batting at the laces.  For about three minutes.  And then I get annoyed and walk away.  The end.

Maybe it's a black cat thing, Orbit. Shoelaces are my very favorite. Yet, I have to sneak play with them since my mom doesn't appreciate my talents. (She is a giant spoilsport.)

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.
