Meet Pepper Lou

Everywhere that mama
went, Pepper was sure to go!

If you ever wanted to find Pepper, all you had to do was find mom.  Pepper helped mom with the gardening, cleaning the house, making dinner and everything moms do during the day. Pepper was mom's shadow . . . and protector.

Just like people do, as Pepper got older, she started to slow down and her eyesight began to fail. The Veterinarian told us that Pepper had cataracts and her eyesight would get progressively worse unless she had eye surgery.

We wanted Pepper to be able to see so we permitted the doctor to perform the surgery. When Pepper came home from the hospital, she had to wear a plastic "cone" around her neck to protect her head. This would keep her from rubbing her sensitive eyes, or bumping into furniture. This picture at left shows little Pepper wearing her protective cone. We affectionately called her our little "cone head".

Puff and Pooh join the family

Dogs and cats often don't get along, but Pepper knew that these cats were special and that mom wanted them to be part of our family. For the first few months, Pepper endured Puff and Pooh, but soon she adopted them as her younger sisters.

Puff and Pooh also realized that Pepper was an older creature and deserved their respect and tolerance. Pepper's eyesight was failing and often she would actually trip over Puff or Pooh. Never once did they hiss at her, or use their claws to strike out at Pepper.
