This is my precious kitty named Pepper. I just recently had to put him down and I miss him very much! He had the sweetest personality and loved all kinds of attention.
He loved being held in your arms. When we first saw him at the Rescue Shelter in 2000, he would stick his giant paws out and beg for a hug, it was an easy choice that he was for us.
We often called him "Perfect Precious Pepper". He got along with all the dogs and other cats and loved to greet guests! In 2010 we got a kitten named Camie and Pepper surprisingly LOVED being around her, she kept him active and youthful as his older years crept along.
He was a Polydactyl cat meaning he had a thumb! I do believe he was a Maine Coon cat (judging from his looks). Never have I had a cat make such an impact on my heart, I will miss terribly.
