Happily Homed: Pepper (Tinder)

Amanda Huggett

We have an #adoptionupdate from Dorothy, who adopted Tinder (now Pepper, renamed for her spicy personality that matches her fur color) last April!

Dorothy shared this: “When we first came to the shelter, our intention was mostly to visit the cats. We were feeling lonely after we had to put our last cat down due to an asthma attack that left him oxygen-dependent and that did not respond to medication. When we first noticed that Tinder was in a little room all by herself, and that she had been in the shelter since December, our hearts ached for her and we knew we had to bring her home with us.

“When she first arrived at our house, Pepper was scared and would swat us if we came too close. After a few weeks living with us, she has really come out of her shell and loves pets! Pepper has also turned into a bit of a lap cat, always looking for an opportunity to snuggle. She’s extremely playful and energetic. She’s also the first cat we’ve had that jumps up on surfaces (like the kitchen counter) so we’ve been learning how to handle that. We’re also getting better at recognizing when she needs time to herself.

“Pepper is very playful, energetic, and loves to cuddle! She also appreciates her beauty sleep, of course. She enjoys more realistic-looking toys. She’s also very food motivated, and occasionally tries to steal pretzels, chips, eggs, milk, and just about anything else. So far her favorite treat has been dehydrated chicken.

“Pepper started out very distrustful of us, but in a short amount of time, we’ve already formed a bond. She’s still a bit spicy, but also has time to sit on your lap and relax. She’s a very sweet girl, and we’re so glad we gave her a chance! We’re happy we can give her a place where she’s comfortable and very glad to have found her!”
