Cleo is very petite. In fact, she’s so small that, the first time I saw her, I guessed she was only 6 or 8 months old. But no; she was found in Georgia, a stray with a litter of kittens (all adopted), and the shelter from which she came to us notes that she was born around June of 2014. So she’s young, but not a baby. Cleo has no health issues that we know about, and she’s a friendly little girl.
Technically, Cleo is what you call a “ticked” or “Abyssinian” tabby. She does not have most of the traditional spots or stripes on her body, but she has a bit of tabby striping on her face. The “ticked” term does not refer to any arachnid; it just means that the fur has alternating bands of light and heavy pigmentation. So her brown coat has an exotic, almost frosted appearance—really lovely. It would be better for you to see this for yourself than to rely on my description, however, and we’re hoping you’ll decide to do exactly that. Cleo more than merits a home of her own; will you be the lucky one to take home this sweet girl?
