Cleo has a large number of fans. Even a construction team – 15 stories high — was enamored with the fluffy white kitty.
“I first noticed Cleo’s fondness for the workers about four months ago, once I started working from home,” Caelin Smith, Cleo’s mom, told The Dodo. “I heard her meowing behind the blinds at something outside my 15th-floor window.”
Smith pulled open the blinds to see what the curious cat was doing.
“They were playing with her through the window,” Smith said. “She had these workers wrapped around her paw! I thought to myself, ‘How long has this been going on for?!’”
The employees began their ascent of Smith’s building at 8:30 a.m.
Smith explained, “I make sure to keep the blinds up so Cleo can watch her guy work.” “It’s been so much fun seeing their connection grow.”
Cleo’s interactions with her “boyfriends” may be seen here:
Construction employees aren’t the only ones affected. All handymen are equally loved by the lovely 1-and-a-half-year-old cat.
“I’ve seen a preference towards electricians, plumbers, and cable installers,” Smith explained. “Because we live in a 500-square-foot studio apartment, this is the most thrilling encounter this city cat has ever had.”
Though the employees have not had the opportunity to pet Cleo, they all look forward to seeing her every day.
Smith described Cleo as “the personification of a COVID kitten.” “She enjoys being in the company of people and despises being alone. Every time I leave the apartment for more than two hours, she shouts at me.”
“She has a very gentle, sweet demeanor and a calming aura,” Smith said. “She’s brought so much happiness into my life.”
