“Need a Hug?” (Snowshoe Siamese Cat) Nikon D300, 105mm, F/3.2, 1/100s, -0.3EV, ISO 640

After the day I’ve had, here is one sure thing that makes it all better…

Well, that and alcohol.

And chocolate.

Yes, definitely chocolate.

Lots of chocolate.

Alcohol and chocolate.

Yeah, that might do it…

My sister, Lori, has been nagging asking me for quite some time to post photos of my beautiful Snowshoe Siamese cat, Cleo. 😉

It’s not that I haven’t tried to get decent shots of my little girl; it’s more that Cleo isn’t all that, shall we say, accommodating?? If she even suspects that I’m taking her picture, I instantly get the ‘look’. So, I have to resort to using my long lens and catch her completely unawares. 

I was going to save these for Lori’s birthday near the end of the month, but what the heck, Sis – here’s your birthday gift a bit early! 🙂 

The post actually does double duty today. With hubby travelling for business, I know he is missing his furry baby girl back at home, so these will certainly make him smile.

Now, as for me, while I am missing seeing his baby blues, I can look at Cleo’s and think of him.

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! 🙂
