Leo the Vacuum
While we can always count on Leo to leave a trail of fur wherever he goes (giving our vacuum a run for its money), he redeems himself through vacuuming up every. single. piece. of food that falls on the ground. Well, not every piece; he spits out lettuce. Every time food is being prepared or eaten in Leo’s presence, he stands at attention, watching, to make sure he gets all the yummy stragglers.
Leo used to counter surf to get to any food that was on top of the counters, but he figured out we didn’t like that and settled for patiently waiting for something to fall in his territory. Since I like to share with Leo, he is always at my side when I’m preparing food. He knows he’ll get a couple pieces of cheese, meat, or peanut butter if he sticks around long enough.
When it comes to keeping the house clean, Leo and I are a team. I vacuum the hair left behind by Leo and he vacuums all the crumbs left behind by us. It is without a doubt that keeping a squeaky clean home just wouldn’t be possible without Leo.
