Cleo is a cat with an attitude—and she’s not afraid to show it! This quirky, humorous story follows the young narrator as they recount Cleo’s everyday activities. Whenever friends come over, Cleo leaves the room without saying hello. She likes to dig on the furniture, which earns her a scolding from Mom, and she loves to sit in Dad’s favorite chair in the living room. When the family is watching a movie, Cleo manages to step on the remote and change the channel by accident, and when she goes outside, Cleo loves to feel the sunshine on her fur…before she chases the birds and mice. And through it all, the narrator loves Cleo exactly the way she is.

“Cat lovers (and others) will love meeting Cleo the cat. In typical cat style, she waltzes to the beat of her own drum, creating mischief along the way. With adorable illustrations and engaging text, families will love this fearless feline’s antics. Highly recommend!” — Jessica Speer, author of BFF or NRF: A Girls’s Guide to Happy Friendships
“Super cute book for cat lovers! In some scenes, the cat is much like a child, in others, she seems to be pure feline, but in all, the pet’s personality shines through with specific endearing behaviors. The voice of a child narrates as the cat teeters on the edge of naughty, but remains clearly loved by her family. Like with all of us, patience is essential.” — Beth Anderson, author of “Smelly” Kelly and His Super Senses
