Arrival Story:
UPDATE-Pepper developed kidney cancer as a result of infection with coronavirus and had to be euthanized on Thursday, May 2, 2013. He was a great cat and a great friend and even made some mischief on his very last night in our home. he and I liked some of the same music and would hang out on the sofa and listen sometimes. I am taking every precaution I am aware of as regards coronavirus and bringing a new cat into the house. I would welcome any advice folks have from experience with this virus in their own cats. My previous cat had passed on and I decided I wanted a new cat right away. I went to PAWS in Montclair New Jersey and was in the cat room for only a few minutes when I turned around and saw Pepper rubbing against his bars. They opened the cage and he just fell into my hands so I decided then and there.

Peppers name which he was called by his previous owners is Bishop. He's a bombay so he is almost entirely black other than a tiny sprig of white/grey hair on the front of his chest like a priest's collar. This combined with his need to be the boss resulted in his name. I didn't like the name Bishop so he's been Pepper ever since. He's big for a cat and pretty tough. He was introduced to a kitten at the vet once and rather than hiss he charged. The vet suggested if I wanted a companion for him that I get a dog.
