Thanksgiving Challenge Day 2 My Little Friend

By
Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A

Debe Maxwell, CRS  asked what are we thankful for this Thanksgiving week . There is a little friend I live with and I am very thankful for her every day she has beautiful blue eyes that sparkle with love . When I pull my car up, she runs to the door to see me. When the phone rings she very often will be saying Hello if you listen carefully if I do not answer right away .  

 

She loves to watch TV, especially YouTube. She does have her favorite shows on there . She also has a favorite on HBOMax  she loves Games of Thrones go figure.

 

When I am in the kitchen, she usually will join me  and have something to eat or just sit and watch me until I am finished what I am doing. She is a great listener and usually does not interrupt unless she is agreeing with me or it is something important 

 

She guards me when I go to the bathroom. Whether it is to put my make-up on taking a bath or shower or use the toilet she is right there with me. A more loyal friend cannot be found. Cats can also be man best friend or shall I say woman 

 

Yes, I am talking about my beautiful cat Cleo. I am so thankful for her. She is a wonderful friend and companion . She was a gift from my daughter. We bonded when I lived there for a few weeks and my daughter said Mom you can have her she sits waiting for you anyway. So one, day six years ago, they brought her to me in a cat carrier. Cleo has been with me ever since. The poor dear had 3 names as they could not decide what to call her so I renamed her. I explained to her, she had a new name and it was Cleo 

 

She is so intelligent, she understands everything we talk about. We will be together until one of us leaves this earth . Who knows, perhaps after I always tell her she is an old soul. I am so thankful to have this sweet, intelligent Siamese cat in my life . Cleo brings me so much JOY

Hello Hannah.  Cleo sounds as if she knows how important she is to you and goes out of her way to keep you feeling that way.  Very special partner.  Mark

Good morning, Hannah... you know that I totally relate to your life with and love of Cleo. I call my Mr. Marlow and Bingo my shadows... and for good reason. Neither is ever to far away from me when I'm home. And my husband tells me that when I'm out of the house they go around looking for me and pining for me.

Kat Palmiotti  sometime I hold her like a baby - she does not like this but she allows me as she whimpers  - I take her head in my hand and pet it and tell her she is an old soul and we have been through other lives before and she moans  :-)

Hello Hannah - while I have been aware of Cleo for a few years along with your strong bond with her, there are some things in your post that are new-to-me or maybe I don't recall.  I didn't know she previously had multiple names or that she was a gift to you from your daughter.  As for your new home, I may not "know" that Cleo approves of the move but it's more than a guess to say I bet she had a say in the decision.

Michael Jacobs  poor Cleo was very stressed out when we were moving. She did not understand what was going on one day even though I tried my best to explain but it seemed that one of my friends had put a BIG BOX in front of her toy box blocking her access. She was sitting on the bed trying to communicate this to me . In her frustastion she bit me really hard really really down to the bone ---steroids and antibiotics for me  --- swelling lasted 3 weeks -- when we first moved in it took her 4 hours to come out from under the bed. She was locked in the bathroom while the movers were there and put in a carrier to get to the new place and a car ride she was tramatized ---  now she loves sitting by the sliders seeing birds and squirrels that come by just like YouTube

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho  Out of no where I may be on the phone on an important conversation and all the sudden she jumps on my laps and sits down and cuddles up . Many time I am on an AR zoom meeting and she starts tapping me with her paw until I pick her up hug her let her see what is going on then she is gone

Hello Miss Hannah Williams 

Too funny – she guards you when you go to the bathroom.  Somehow most pets do feel that is among their many jobs. It is comforting to know she is a good listener and does not interrupt you.  

Cleo is blessed to have you.

It's nice to have a living being listen to you, not talk back, and love you unconditionally Hannah Williams . I prefer a dog as they will not walk away while you are talking to them. 😊

During the most isolating of pandemic days, I learned how valuable my two felines were to me.  They seemed to sense what the earth was going through and stayed closer.

Bob "RealMan" Timm  Cleo never walks away  while I am talking to her she is very interested in everything I have to say . I have always had dogs and to be honest none have compared to the devotion and attention that Cleo has given to me .She is very intelligent
