My Cleo - My Hero!

Cleo is very OCD about bedtime. She kneads me for about 5-10 minutes, then has to have her little paws on me (face, neck, etc.) to fall asleep. When I start getting the bed ready, she gets antsy and almost a little panicky that for some reason, she won't be next to me. So last night, we were settling down,the lights were off, and she started jumping all over the bed as if we were playing "under the blanket." I asked her what she was doing - no response. Cats! She kept it up and all of a sudden I thought, crap! What if there's something on my bed? I sat up and then felt something on my arm. I slapped it off and jumped out of bed and turned on the light. A huge, brown, hairy spider was on MY BED!!!!!! I killed it and showed it to Cleo so she'd know it was dead. Then I flushed it down the toilet. You can't just throw a dead spider away. You can't. You just never know...... Of course, she spent the next hour looking for that dang spider.

But, ewwwwwww, you'd just have to know how much I hate spiders, and the thought of that thing being on my bed - and ME! It probably didn't matter that Cleo was still looking -- it wasn't like I was going to fall asleep any time soon after that.

So my little Cleo deserves some pampering tonight.

Maire: Wow, she knew something was not right! What a cute picture-she looks like the cat that ate the cream... no.... spider. I would have been itching all night after something like that.

Sweet Dreams,

You need to buy Cleo a cape for her exhaulted status

Unfortunately she got this email this morning...

Dear Cleo,

Don't think you're anything special, you're still a punk in my book....

Love,
Cinderella

Ack! Nice cat for warning you. I'd have had to strip the bed and remake it. THEN take a shower. And I'd have still checked again.

Ewww. Cleo deserves some good treats and lots of pampering after that! I'm dreading the first bark scorpion of the season showing up in the house. I know the kittens will play with it. Luckily I have found most of them in the past before Bradley has.
