Gillian adopted Pepper a few months ago. Here’s an update on Pepper’s new life as a former stray kitty who contracted FIV while living outdoors:

Pepper is a happy, heathy boy who loves to snuggle in blankets and prefers to sleep with his head propped up. He sits in the window to watch birds and squirrels and watches for me to come home from work. His favorite toys are his catnip sock, feather stick, and squeaky mouse. He runs all over the apartment playing and likes to sit at the very top of his cat tower where he can see everything going on inside and out in the courtyard. He always has plenty to say (especially at meal time) and loves to be brushed. Being the big, tough boy he thinks he is, he’d never admit it, but he loves getting kisses and purry snuggles in the mornings.
