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.

Sleeping Like a Baby


Considering it's in our nature to sleep a good 12 hours a day or more, the majority of photos dad has in his "Cleo" folder are of me slumbering away on one lap or the other. 

Sometimes on the living room carpet, once in a while on their bed and occasionally out on the steps I'll curl up for a good long snooze, but mostly it's their laps.  He says for a big ol' girl with attitude galore, a dislike for being held and the need- recently, especially for some reason- to wake him and mom at all hours of the night for no other reason than wanting attention they can't help but look at me like this and just go "Awwww...". 

 My work here is done.

our night talk. you'd think after a while they'd learn cat.
but no, they want us to learn english. good to see they give
you lots of leg time. it's important time together. precious

Cleo, you and Sweetie, keeping your people up at night, then waking them when they are nicely asleep. Sweetie has me trained to roll over onto my back, so she can crawl up on my chest, which silences her. I cannot sleep that way, however...

At least they say Awww when you wake them up all hours of the night. You're most beautiful.

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.
