Pepper and Penny (formerly Sinbad and May) were adopted from Black Cat Rescue in November 2014.
This pair are brother and sister in spirit, but not by blood: Pepper was between 6 months and a year old when he arrived and Penny was just a bitty thing! Very shy, but curious, they were found living in a campground over the summer. A local cat rescuer trapped and altered them before she sought out Black Cat Rescue’s help in getting this beautiful pair into a new home together.
Over their time with Black Cat Rescue, Pepper and Penny started coming out of their shells. Pepper became more trusting with humans, while Penny went through a growth spurt and developed the silliest playing persona with growling and hilarious wild jumps.
In November, Danielle and her family adopted Pepper and Penny from Black Cat Rescue and provided them with a loving home to grow in and continue to develop into the perfect companions.
Pepper and Penny are doing brilliantly and they are definitely feeling at home! We received a great update from Danielle and we’re so happy to share some details of their new life.
Pepper has really started to come out of his shell. He still prefers quiet, but he’s really bonded to Danielle. He seeks her out to rub against her legs, sleeps with (read: on top of) her in bed at night, and purrs up a storm the whole time. Pepper is shy of the kids, but making progress. Danielle jokes, ” He’ll even let the kids pet him IF they’re in our bed AND being quiet, AND under the covers AND laying down.” Baby steps!
We were so glad to catch up with Pepper, Penny and their new forever family. We wish Danielle and her family all the best with this dynamic duo and we hope to hear more in the future!
