Cleo lost her longtime home when her guardian’s mother became very ill and needed a lot of care on top of the guardian’s busy work schedule; she had no time for Cleo.

Cleo is a very sweet girl who thrives in a quiet environment where she can strongly bond with her chosen person. She has a quirky sense of humor that expresses itself when she’s relaxed—when you’re sitting in a chair, Cleo will sit on the back and put her paw on your shoulder to ask for attention; she’s not a direct lap cat yet appreciates contact and comforting and given her choice will almost always be in your company. She’s very "helpful" when you are working on your computer; make sure you use those typing pauses to give her some pets, okay?

Cleo needs a peaceful home with no other cats or children. We don’t know how she currently feels about dogs, though as a kitten she was around a respective dog.

Cleo thought she had it made and then lost that home through no fault of her own; she will need some time and patience as she adjusts to the harsh changes in her life, yet Cleo craves—no, she NEEDS—that special bond between a kitty and her human. If you can give Cleo the time she needs to trust that with you it’s going to last, you will have a sweet and devoted kitty for life.
