We knew it was coming, but it still came as a shock. Cleo crossed over to the rainbow bridge on Wednesday, 2/16/2022 – joining both Murphy and Willow. It’s excruciating to lose a family member, whether it is animal or human. Cleo was definitely a part of our family.
We picked up Cleo from the Oregon Humane Society – but we like to say that SHE chose us. When we took her into a kitty room, she climbed all over me and curled up on my shoulders. She was 3 months old. I like to think that she is in heaven, running around with the zoomies.
Cleo was our special cat. She was the most affectionate cat we had, and was definitely very protective of her humans.

Cleo so enjoyed the pet heating pad. We’re still not used to having room at our feet, where the heating pad was located.
The pain of losing Cleo is still pretty raw and fresh. It’s the first time in 23 years that we have been without a cat in our lives. Our entire “RV life” has been with cats, so it will take a while to adjust to a new normal.
