Meet Peppe: The Italian Christmas Kitty!
On Friday night I had a very special delivery: a five-year-old orange Persian named Peppe. I found him one random afternoon about two weeks ago on Petfinder.com. That's also the site where I originally found Maestro and Mozart. If you're looking for a pet, it's a great place to look. They even have barnyard animals!
Some fun facts about Peppe:
1. He's originally from Italy and came to this country (with eight dollars in his pocket!) with his original owner. He even has a passport.
2. He's a proper Persian, but the shelter had to give him a lion's cut, in winter, because he got really matted being stuck in the cage.
3. He likes to follow me around the apartment. I think he has some attachment issues.
4. He's the most affectionate creature I have ever met. I recommend one of his love bites on your cheek.
In his carrier when he first arrived. He wasn't too jazzed about getting out.
Peppe isn't so much as a cat as he is just a giant, orange face.
He's already plotting his escape.
Hairless but happy.
