“Cleo” (Snowshoe Siamese) Nikon D300, 105mm macro, F/5, 1/80s, -0.7EV, ISO 640

As a beloved part of the family, our cat Cleo is photographed often doing just about anything. (I suspect she will be featured in this project many, many times!)

Cleo didn’t have a great start in life as she was found on the streets with three small kittens in tow. Weighing in at a mere 4.5 lbs, it is questionable if she would have survived if not brought to the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem.

When I held her for the first time, she buried her face into my neck (purring loudly) and began drooling! In that instant, I knew she was destined for our family. Hard to believe that was 15 years ago!

Today, Cleo is a happy, healthy and well-loved feline who adores exploring the outdoors, taking long naps and being on the receiving end of neck scratches and belly rubs.

Every day, we are thankful to have Cleo in our lives and we strive to give her the best life and all the love we can.  M’row! 🙂



  1. How adorable! And a wonderful story of rescue. It seems so odd that such a lovely (and purebreed?) cat was found stray.

    • I know!! We think that all the time. The only thing we can guess is that once she became pregnant, she was tossed out on her own. We cannot thank the shelter people enough for finding her and rescuing her so that we can have this little sweetheart in our lives! She rules our hearts for sure!

      Thank you, Karma! 🙂
