mi chiamo Clio
I wrote before about our neighbors and the kitten they had named Clea, short for Cleopatra. According to our neighbor she had Clea for her granddaughter who moved into our building this past summer with her mother. They often left Clea out in the common area and, unfortunately, not everyone in the building would close the door to the street; last spring she got out and we never saw her again.
During the summer our neighbor got another kitten, his name is Clio and again he was to be for their granddaughter. The granddaughter moved into our building this summer and Clio still resides with the grandparents. When Clio is outside the door and we open the door to leave he is quickly at our door meowing and purring for attention, always ready to bolt into our apartment if the opening presents itself.
Clio has won our hearts and many times we will hear him in the courtyard playing with something or sitting outside our door with a gentle meow if he hears us inside. He reminds us of the two cats we had in New Mexico and how affectionate they were. If we let Clio in and keep him will our neighbors notice?
