Hi there, my name is Cleo! I was recently surrendered to RSR when my mom was not longer able to care for me. Thankfully, the nice people at Ruff Start took me in as their unofficial office cat when I had no where to go.
The ladies at RSR tell me I'm the sweetest old lady. I am constantly following my people around and will jump up in any warm lap that's available to me. I love to climb up in high places and take a long snooze.
We are currently looking for a Foster to Adopt home for sweet Cleo. She was recently diagnosed with Feline Coronavirus not to be confused with COVID-19, feline coronavirus is something completely different!
Feline Coronavirus (fCOV) is a common viral infection in cats. It generally causes asymptomatic infection, but can cause mild diarrhea…. cats are generally asymptomatic, can shed large amounts of virus in feces, and serve as a continual source of infection for other cats in the environment. There is no cure but instead I have been treated symptomatically.
Because of this, I have had an upset tummy and RSR's vetting team is working with me to figure out what will be best to help my tummy. They want to continue to figure out what's best for me in my new home and once they do- I can officially be yours!
