She has been pretty lazy sleeping on soft duvet covered beds both upstairs and downstairs in the guest bedroom.
I coaxed her to wake up with some cat treats and got the camera out and snapped her picture.
For every picture that you see here there were about 10 more of each pose and most were blurred as she doesn't hold a pose for long.
Here she is perched up on the granite counter by the stove
looking rather nonchalant.
Pepper is royalty here in The Humble Bungalow.
Do you think she has any idea of her power?
I wonder what she's thinking...
"here she goes again with that crazy camera"...
This look is not for the camera
it was the birds outside that caught her attention!
When she was first here in our home she refused to have her claws clipped.
Snarling, biting, wriggling out of the towel, scratching and hissing at us.
I worried that we'd lose an eye!
We ended up taking her to the vet so that the technician and the vet together could do the job.
I took her for many monthly visits before deciding to train her to allow me to do the job.
I gave her a treat then cut the claws on one paw,
another treat and another paw,
same again twice more and we're finished.
Pepper does love her food
and she loves to chase her catnip mice.
She chirrups when she's happy and it's the sweetest sound ever!
She does not like water unless it is fresh from the tap...
"She who must be obeyed."
Pepper often sleeps on top of the duvet of our bed with us asleep underneath.
Part Bengal, part Egyptian Mau, part Alley cat she does not like to be left alone.
She follows me around the house when I clean or water the plants.
If I am sitting at the computer, more often than not, she is snuggled up right beside me keeping me warm.
Pepper is cheeky and sneaky and does rule the roost.
(can you tell?)
She has taken to jumping way up to the top of the cabinets
snoozing and surveying what goes on below.
What a spoiled Puss!
I have toyed with the idea of getting another cat to keep her company...
but I have a sneaky feeling that she might not like sharing us with another feline.
It's been a cold and stormy day
there's a sweet geranium blooming on the windowsill
cheering up the grey gloom that lies beyond the pane.
If the sun is not shining
I find my own way to add cheer to the day
and that usual means having some fresh flowers close by.
What makes your life a little sunnier?
Dinner is cooking in the oven,
The Vancouver Canucks are on the TV and Mr. HB is happy.
What's not to love?
