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.

Okay, so I'm a black cat.  And it's Halloween.  So what.  It means nothing to me, never really has.  I'm tired, I'm old, it's getting cold (yeah, yeah- I stay inside.  Let me gripe already!) and I don't have the Halloween spirit this year.
     We never get trick-or-treaters around these parts, so we just left the outside light off and mom and I sat and watched dad nodding off while we were watching a movie.  Cheap entertainment, I guess.  
     I'm on their sh*t list right now.  I kind of had an accident on the floor last night, so I'm lying low.  No cutesy pictures, no witty or clever wordiness.  
     It's storming heavily right now.  Sounds like maybe some hail, too.  
     Mom wants dad to do some painting around here today.  Gonna be a cold, gray miserable day.   Good day to paint, I guess.  I'm off y'all.

If you had an accident, I'm sure it's because you weren't feeling your best. And you're old (hey, you said it first!), so I think your humans should give you a pass, Orbit.

Hi Orbit, some of us know how you feel. Being old should give you all kinds of excuses for having an accident. You probably couldn't help it. You all have a wonderful week end.

brandi had lots of accidents when she got old. But we have tile floors, so they were easy for Mommy to clean up.

We agree with the others.
Hey, it happens.
As long as you are feeling well, it's all good.

Yeah, Orbit, your humans should consider themselves lucky that you didn't 'accident' on the couch or the bed! Chin up, big guy!

Angel Prancer Pie said...

Good to hear from you, Orbit!
Don't worry bout those accidents. That's what we have humans for - cleanup!

Accident? They should think about the inevitable Depends for themselves, Orbit!

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.
