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.

Dad's Turn

 You remember my Mother's Day photo with mom in the lounger?  Well now it's the real old fart's turn.  Happy Father's Day to the best dad a cranky, moody, 'tude Goddess (no, this is not about mom!) could ever ask for.  

This is dad with two of his most favorite things: a good book, and me.  The only most favorite things missing are mom, who's taking the picture, and a cold beer.  And his maple coffee.  And bacon.  And pizza.  And a nice slab of prime rib.  Did I mention a cold beer?  And a pile of nachos.  And sardines.  And a tub of Ben and Jerry's.  Oops, I forgot salt. And more mom.  And anything with chocolate.  Make that chocolate and peanut butter.  Maybe mom with beer, chocolate and peanut butter.

Any way, even though we all know dad can be a bumbling idiot often at times, mom says we girls wouldn't trade him for the world (betcha can't guess which one of us wrote this part).

Cleo, it sounds like the purrfect way to treat Dad today, is go shopping for that long list of his favorite things. Something for Mom and you to gear up for. Otherwise, we wish your Dad a happy Father's day and a relax with you.

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.
