I am SassyCat. I am best at being invisible. You could spend a week at my house and never see me.
My first owner was a mean old lady. She fed me beans and rice and threw me outside in the winter cold. She called me names and said she hated me. So I got a new mommy and a new home, temporarily. My now Mommy got married and built me a brand new house and was able to take me!! It was so big and scary that I spent four days hiding under the bed. I didn't even come out to eat.
I am 13 years old and have been here longer than the other two. I don't have time for this kitten nonsense. The other cat is ok and nice to cuddle with. She also cleans my ears for me, which is why I tolerate her.
I spend most of my days sleeping under the bed.
Things I DO NOT LIKE!!!!!
* noisy trucks
* plastic bags
* door bells
* loud people
* other cats
* visitors of any kind
* vacuum cleaners
* barking dogs
* the school bus
* the garage door opener
* the lawn mower
* the mixer
* the dryer
* stomping feet
* flushing toilets
* the wind
All and any of the above will send me under the bed. And that is why I spend most days in my safe place - aka under the bed. At night, I spend about 30 minutes getting petted and scratched and sucking on my Mommy's arm. Then I go back into stealth mode. I'm really good at it because my Mommy often has to prove my existence to visitors because they never see me. My biggest fear is being locked out of the house. I enjoy my morning and evening romps in the yard, but my humans must leave the door open a bit or I WILL FREAK OUT!!!!
My name is Pepper. I have clear blue eyes, and I am a Siamese/Ragdoll mix. I think. Also known as Silly Pepper, Spicy Pepper, and Bitey Cat. My first memories are of being in a cage with my siblings at the Lafourche Parish Animal Shelter. I was tiny and about five, maybe six weeks old. They called me Rufus but I didn't like that name at all! I was just learning to eat real food. There were a lot of us in that one cage, so I had lots of friends to play with.
On October 1st. I got picked to be on The List. I wasn't sure what list they meant, but I was excited to be picked for something. It seems a few of us were on The List for that Tuesday. I waited and nothing happened, until a pretty lady with reddish brown hair came to see me. The shelter lady pointed at me and I wondered if maybe this had something to do with The List? The two ladies went away for a bit, then the shelter lady wrapped me in a soft towel. The reddish haired lady put me in a box, and into her car. I liked her a lot.
We drove up to a red brick house and she brought me inside!! I had never been inside a house before!!! She put me in a small room and gave me food and water. It was a little scary to be in a new place. We sat on the floor and I talked to her the whole time, and climbed up on her shoulder. I talked a lot. I liked this lady a lot.
Eventually I was let out of the small room to meet the rest of my new family. Two little girls and a big hefty guy. I liked them a lot. I also had two cat siblings. They did not like me at first, but I was determined to win them over!! I pounce on them, chase them, and bite them every chance I get to show them I am harmless! I think it's working.
It's been two months since I left the shelter. I sure have grown. I have mastered eating canned and dry food. I have mastered jumping on the kitchen table. The couch is my fav scratching place. I have even mastered the litter box!!! My Mommy is the most comfy bed ever. She jokes that she has always wanted to be a cat bed, so I am happy to oblige. She is also fun to bite!! She tries to get away, but I just bite harder. I know she likes it because she likes me, right?
