Fat Cats are Fun













We used to have a beautiful and dainty all-white cat who had just a smidgin of grey on her forehead, so we called her Smidgin. When we picked up Cat #2, my then 5-year old daughter thought we should call him Pepper since we had an all-white cat, and the new cat was white and grey.


Smidgin is gone now, but Pepper remains like a linebacker holding the line. At 24 pounds, he weighs more than some of my friends' children!

Cats are funny types.. our last one passed after almost 20 years. I am more of a dog person.

Heather, that's a big cat. Pepper weighs nine pounds more than my Norma Jean, a Jack Russell. What does your cat eat? Please don't say small dogs! John

John, worry no more! Pepper is a vegetarian. (But did you ever see such a big vegetarian?)

Lol. I can tell pepper is maturing, he has strayed away from his racing stripe days and is on the road to responsibility.

Yes, and that's the way we like him!
