Cleo isn’t even fully adult yet. As of this writing (2/01/09), she’s under 8 months old. She’s of modest size, a cute black-and-white with a symmetrical patch of white on her lower face and a white stripe down her nose. She also has white whiskers, white “socks”, and white on her chest and tummy.

The shelter from which Cleo came to us noted that she “loves other cats” and is “very vocal”. Their only other comment on Cleo was about her shyness; she’s a timid girl. Given that Cleo is so new to us and hasn’t really had a chance to settle down yet, it’s hard for us to determine much more about her right now. Because she is shy, though, we recommend she go to a home without small children. Cleo is healthy as far as we can determine.

We believe that Cleo will become calmer once she understands that there’s nothing here to harm her.
