yes, our newest member of the OHANA... meet Pepper. She is a persian cat, Tortoise in color has green eyes, and she's 2months and 13 days old.
at first i thought i will have a hard time taking care of a cat, since it's my first time to get a pet cat, used to have dogs when i was in high school. but having cat is something I am enjoying very much.
her first day was just wonderrful, we brought her home and released her from her kennel, she immediately familiarized herself of the house, she first ran into the kitchen, and into kids bedroom and mine. she was running back and forth, until the kids decided that it's safe to play with her.
she ate heartily that night probably due to exhaustion - been playing with the kids for almost an hour and half. Abbie is so delighted with Pepper and she keeps calling her PAPER... While Angel is so protective of her, typical for an eldest daughter.
Pepper is a one smart cat, i only taught her, her kitty litter and she immediately know where to find it. She didn't even have what they call an adjustment period from her new surroundings. She loves to eat, although she still skinny but i will do my best to fatten her up
the next day i gave her a bath, which surprisingly she didn't give me a hard time, i prepared myself to this tasks (been reading alot online on cat's grooming) and boy i did it with no scratch at all. Hurrah for me!
she like to be groomed, she even goes to sleep while I groomed her! silly cat. Pepper purrs alot, which I was told that it was a good thing because according to Jennee that means she is happy and content.
Pepper already has established a routine around the house,
- when kids are at school, she will just sleep the whole day,
- waking up for a bite to eat, and off to sleep again.
- when kids are at home, it's play time with her
- and night time, once she saw us (me and hubby) in our bedroom, she will hop on to bed and lay down on my pillow. so technically she is now sleeping in our bed...
- and from time to time will call out to me (like a baby asking for her milk) and will bring her to the kitchen to give her food.
so am how wondering if I can give her a canned tuna on water or brine? or should i wait for a couple of months? i am afraid she will outgrown her kitty food first before i can introduce to her a new kind.
enjoy this photo of her on my pillow at first glance i thought my camera got wonky since i can't find her face so I enlarge this one....
