Climbing the cat tree, catnip bags, being brushed, plants, clawing at toes, sleeping on top her mommy or daddy,
Baths, getting her nails clipped, being picked up
Catnip bags, the laser pointer, toes
Favorite Nap Spot:
The top floor of the cat tree; sleeping on mommy or daddy;
Cat chow...she's a picky eater.
Pepper can fetch! She will only do this if we're throwing around a wire that came from an old bra. Also, if we have any bouquets in the apartment, Pepper will pluck the flowers and drop them at our feet whenever she wants attention.
Pepper came with her brother, Turnip. Our family would not be complete without her.
Pepper is the spoiled girl of the family. She isn't as friendly towards strangers as her brother, Turnip, is; she actually kept to herself for a month before she started socializing with us! But now that she has grown to trust and love us, Pepper will follow us wherever we go--assuming she feels like being pampered. If she's not feeling particularly cuddly, she will run off to the highest floor of the cat tree and sleep. And if we try to pick her up while she's in her anti-social mood, she will dig her claws into the carpet and resist being picked up! She is extremely smart, very attuned to human emotions, and is very good at letting us know how she feels--for instance, if we are trying to give her a bath, she will (1) try to scratch my eyes out; (2) claw the shower door open; and if all else fails (3) climb up my back and meow until I give up! *Sigh* She really is our pretty little princess!

Hello! I am Pepper, Turnip's sister. I look like my cat-Mama---pretty, prim, and proper. I have been living with Mommy and Daddy for two years, and I love them very much. I don't love many people, and it took a long time for me to trust Mommy and Daddy. Besides, they are all I need so I don't have to be friendly with anymore humans.
Mommy and Daddy give me a lot of attention. The trick is to ignore them every now and then so that they think it's a special treat when I decide to cuddle them. I usually only want pets in the morning, after Mommy and Daddy have been sleeping all night long. It is very boring when they are not awake...so whenever I hear their voices, I know they are up and I run to them and start purring for attention! I love getting pets...I will push my head into their hands and faces and make them give me all the pets I want until I get bored. And then, after I'm satisfied, I'll go up to my cat tree to sleep. If they try to wake me up, I give them a mean look. It usually does not work on them though.
I have figured out many ways to get pets whenever I want them, even if Mommy and Daddy are too busy to pay attention to me. I'll usually follow them when they go to the bathroom, and sit by their feet when they're on the toilet. Mommy and Daddy have no choice but to pet me then! It's not like they have anything better to do! Also, whenever Mommy is studying, I like to jump on the table and sleep on her books. She tries to move me off to the side so she can read, but when she does this, I'll usually move back onto her book or swish my tail over her pages. Mommy can't get mad at me because I'm so cute! And she knows that if she doesn't take advantage of the attention I am giving her, she might not get it again! That's the secret to getting lots of love!
When Daddy plays video games, I run over to the nearest pillow and make biscuits in front of him. He thinks it's really cute when I do that, and will usually stop playing to watch me. And then I get pets! I might even be lucky enough to get a brushing session. Ahh! I love being brushed--but only with the thin brush, and not the flat brush.
I love being Mommy and Daddy's princess!
