“It’s been so much fun seeing their connection grow.”
Cleo has a large number of fans. Even a construction team – 15 stories high — was enamored with the fluffy white kitty.
Cleo’s mother, Caelin Smith, told us, “I first observed Cleo’s affinity for the employees approximately four months ago, once I started working from home.” “I heard her meowing at something outside my 15th-floor window from behind the curtains.”
To observe what the curious cat was up to, Smith opened the blinds.
“Through the window, they were playing with her,” Smith explained. “She had these employees wrapped around her little finger!” ‘How long has this been going on?!’ I wondered aloud.
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.”

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 relaxing atmosphere and has a really soft, lovely disposition,” Smith remarked. “She’s made my life so much more enjoyable.”
