Well, our foster kitty just left for her new home. A friend of mine moved to the middle of nowhere and wasn't sure about taking Cleo. Well, turns out she's really lonely there and she loved Cleo when she met her. So, after getting all settled in to their new place she came to pickup Cleo.
The day I brought her in with the awful leather collar around her neck.

When I found Cleo under a bush in my garden I was shocked. She was so matted, smelly, and thin. Her fur was brittle, and even crunchy behind her ears, and looked so dull. Right from the beginning she was such a sweet kitty. She would meow and Mee-OW, then look right up at you and purr!
She never held still, always had to be moving, like she needed you to give her all of your attention, and she'd just suck it up like a little sponge.
Over the last few months she grew beautiful. Her fur is black and glossy, thick and silky. Even the tough spot behind her ears has a much better feel to it. She's not as clingy either, she goes to explore and find things. She's still a sweet kitty, but not quite as in your face about it, she settled down.
Her and Muffin became great friends, they'd sit and snuggle, even grooming each other. She still likes to chase Doran...but she doesn't pin him down, it's more of a playful chase. She got much better the past few weeks with the girls too. Less hissing and fighting.
Now she's found a wonderful new mom and dad, who will love her and take care of her wonderfully.
Bye Cleo! We'll miss you!!!
