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.

It's a nice quiet day here.  Mom's doing all kinds of cleaning, and dad is home sick from work.  I'm taking a break from napping in the sun, and I thought I'd share something.  

     My veterinarian's office, who tried their best to take care of Grayson, sent us this beautiful arrangement the other day.  Very thoughtful of them, wouldn't you say?
     I've been wandering around the place, snooping into the bathroom and such, sure he's gonna hop out from hiding somewhere. Things are getting back to normal, but, well, it takes time, I guess...

how nice of the v-e-t.... it does take time to heal - mom says she kept looking for both our angel kitties for a while after they ran for the bridge.

Oh, I am so sorry to read your sad news. You did such a wonderful job of letting the little guy know that he was loved, even if it was for such a short time. T.

We agree...that is such a nice gesture. Our vet didn't do anything like that when my Bobo passed ((((hugs)))) I know how hard it is. It will get better.
Hoping your Dad feels better soon.
Much Love.

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.
