I always tell people that Peppy is a REALLY unusual cat. I’m not sure they believe me. After this I think they will.
Daniel and I picked her out specially because we thought she was the meekest kitten in the shelter.
We never used the word “meek” again; she dominated our adult male cat from day one—still, he adored her.
Same with humans. She was so feisty, everyone but Daniel was afraid of her. I wouldn’t touch her for years.
We all grew to adore her–and now she dominates us, too.
Meanwhile, she does some very un-catlike things.
She drinks out of glasses.
Sits on the printer WHILE it’s printing.
Stretches out by the net on the ping pong table WHILE we’re playing–even when the ball hits her.
And when’s the last time you saw a cat do this?
She isn’t just sitting; she’s PEEING.
I’ve witnessed this before—but I never managed to get the camera in time to capture visual evidence.
I think she was waiting for me to hand her some toilet paper.
