About Me

Asheville, North Carolina
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.

A Brief "Paws"

 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.

Have a lovely break Cleo and your hoo-mans. You must ensure every inch of that suitcase is furred up before the visitor leaves Cleo, we're sure you'll do a great job of it. MOL!

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.
