Facts about Cleo

  • Breed: American Shorthair
  • Color: Gray, Blue Or Silver Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Looking for a sweet, loving cat to add plenty of purrs to your home? Cleo is something special. This adorable 20 pound lap cat is as cute as a bug’s ear. She has a gorgeous grey and white coat, big green eyes, and a personality that will melt your heart.

Cleo has been spayed, and is very healthy.

Cleo is being rehomed by her owners, a growing young family. As much as they love her and it breaks their hearts to have to make this very difficult decision, they feel that it is best for Cleo to be placed in a quiet home where she can be the only pet.

Cleo was their first pet, and since those days, the family has grown to add dogs and small children. Cleo tries her best to get along with everyone, but she is just not comfortable or at ease in this hectic environment. This anxiety has resulted in several episodes of Cleo having accidents outside the litter box – clearly a result of her unpredictable environment.

Cleo needs to be placed in a quiet home where she is the only pet and there are no small children around. There were never any litter box problems when she was the only pet, and the owners are confident that in the right environment this will no longer be an issue for her.

She is such a special girl and deserves the type of home where she will be cherished and given the quiet, predictable environment that will make her feel safe and loved.

If you have room in your heart and home for Cleo, she would love to be your cat. All supplies will be included.

Hi, My name is Cleo!

Location: Allen, TX, 75013
Type of Pet: Cat
Breed: American Short Hair
Age: 9
Color/Coat Type: white/grey; short
Size: 20 lbs
Health Issues: No
Behavior Issues: Anxiety around dogs and small children

Cleo is:
Spayed, Microchipped, Litter Trained, House Broken

Cleo gets along with:
Babies, Toddlers, Small Children, Older Children, Dogs

She’s shy with new people, but warms up pretty quickly. She gets along with people, kids and our dog just fine, but she is clearly anxious around them. Despite this, she is very relaxed and likes to be by herself, but when she joins the family she is always wanting to rub up against you and cuddle. She loves to look out the window if you leave the blinds open. She loves Friskies Party Mix and Temptations. She’s fine with any dry food and gets one wet Fancy Feast a night. She likes toys that are either feathery or that she can scratch but she’s not destructive at all with her scratching..

We feel that Cleo needs a quieter environment where she can be the only pet in the home, and no small children.

About Houston Find My Pet A Home

About Our Rescue Group...

In many locations throughout the USA and Canada, shelters and rescues are filled to capacity, leaving pet owners who can no longer care for their pet with nowhere to turn. Many pets are needlessly being euthanized.

Being placed in a shelter is a very stressful experience for all pets - and their owners. We offer a very good alternative, allowing pets to stay in the loving care of their owners while a new home is located for them.

We have helped many pet owners in need to place their pet in a home where they have great peace of mind in knowing that their pet is being cherished, well cared for and kept safe, happy and healthy.

Come Meet Our Pets...

In most instances, our pets stay with their owners until a new home can be located. There are some situations which require a more urgent placement, and in these instances, we look for loving foster homes to care for these pets until a permanent home can be located.

Our Adoption Process...

When a pet is placed with our organization, our staff create a very honest and compelling adoption story about the pet, using the information provided to us.

We then spread the word about this pet's need for a new home through a wide variety of online services, and through local outreach.

Interested parties are directed to fill out a formal request to meet a pet, providing in-depth information about themselves.

Before a potential adopter is introduced to a pet, we do careful reference screening and a criminal records check.

Should the pet's owner and the adoptive party agree to an adoption, a formal agreement is entered into, requiring the new owner to agree to keep in touch, ensure the pet's physical and emotional well-being, and provide a safe, happy and healthy home.

They are required to agree that they will not surrender the pet to a shelter or give away the pet - but rather they are to contact our organization so that we can find another suitable home, in the event that they are unable to fulfill their commitment.

The owners deliver the pet to the new owners, so that they can do a home inspection prior to leaving the pet in the new owner's care.

Our organization provides follow-up services, contacting the new owners after the first week, and then every 45 days for the first nine months post-adoption. This helps ensure the pet is being well cared for, and that the new owners have any support they need in adjusting to life with their new companion,
