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 All About Food

 Mom's always saying things like "I swear, you two are so alike!" about me and dad when it comes to food.  I don't know what she's talking about.  She throws out words like "addicts" and "piggies" and whatnot.  Says that's all we think about.  Says sometimes she thinks we love food more than her. Dad and I both know she's the most important thing in this house to us, each for our own reasons.  She's just spouting gibberish if you ask me. 


I'm ordinarily not allowed on tables or countertops here, but I guess mom was zoning on the laptop and dad was so wrapped up in his dinner that neither of them noticed me on the table.

Mom swears that the only reason I ever want to sit with them, give them attention or show them lovin' is if there's food involved.  Whatever.

Cleo, without the discomfort of an empty tummy, it makes it easier
to give humans purrs and snuggles. i think u r just trying to get
all full so u can do justice to showing mom how much u care. precious

I love hanging with mum and getting all kinds of attention.
However, I also like food! The thing I love most...Belly rubs and brushings!!!!!

It sounds like a good enough reason to me.

Sharing really is a good virtue, even with food sweet Cleo!

There's nothing wrong with loving a little food....

What is her problem, Cleo?
Maybe she's worried that your Dad only loves her for her sandwiches?!?

Summer said...

I've gotten that accusation with my treats and training, Cleo! But I do enjoy the attention also. I bet you do too.

If they don't notice that you're on the table then what is up there is fair game.

Food is a good thing, Cleo. There is nothing wrong with wanting to try new things. Right???

We stalk out Mommy's dinner time. Hey, you never know if there's something good on their plate!

Sasha + Saku said...

Cleo, we're both mooches here. Mom bean and the bean brofur don't always share but we sure like it when they do.

Frodo is the foodie in this house! Only time he gives me head butts is when I am about to feed him!

You and Mudpie could be clones in looks but she is SO not food motivated! Unless it's her beloved squeezies...

Katie Isabella said...

Cleo, you and Mudpie are Mom's love- to- look- at -girls! You already know why.

Leah said...

Cleo, you do look intent upon getting a taste of something yummy but I bet you a sweet kitty too!

That's how Cody was! Always on the table trying to get our dinner! (I have old blog posts with documentation lol). Roary doesn't do it (yet) because he has yet to try people food. Trying not to get him into it!

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.
